Whats it Called?

Postby SurreyLass » Sat Aug 13, 2016 8:08 am

Hi all - hope you can help.

What the bit of internal trim called that sits inside the front foot wells and goes from the floor to the dash sort of level and the front shelf is screwed into it about half way up? Mine are in shocking shape but don't know if it's something purchasable or if its a take it out, copy it and DIY type job since we are all new to the Morris world!

Many thanks in advance

I think they're called kick panels, and by the sound of it yours have been :)

Scuttle panel trim, they are available new but are easy enough to make. ESM have them listed as either new or shop worn.

That's brilliant - thanks so much! I think at £22.50 plus VAT for a new pair, I might buy a new set since I don't have any vinyl or anything.
Cheers!

Stealing this thread, if I may...

What is the technical description for the type of board used for the trim panels? Would it be called Millboard, Tempered Hardboard or something else in the UK? My vinyl is OK but the boards are all warped and I'd like to make some new ones.

Thanks

What you need to use for them is 3.6mm marine plywood, as you have found hardboard soaks up moisture and warps over time. You can't waterproof hardboard as it will warp soaking up the waterproofing agent.

When you make them and cover them, be careful to make a right and a left. I did a great job on some a while back, using the last of the material, until I went to fit them. It was time to leave the garage for a while.

Thanks.

It's that duo-tone trim from a deluxe 1963 model. Nightmare to match pieces so I'm going to have to remake the panels and paint the vinyl so it doesn't look such a mess.

So you just need to find another chap who has made the same mistake on the other side.

With the same colour.

Easy :)
