Thanks Tazio 

I'll see what turns up here first and if no joy give Bruce a call.

Out of interest how far in advance did you book the job in?

thanks

Can't beat a good brew  Thumb Up

not been to Arch since the early nineties for chassis work so would be nice to retrace my steps from the past.

I dont recall any coming up for sale second hand, there are a few different versions depending on chassis type and they are drilled to fit your chassis. 

I’d be inclined to speak to Bruce.

“they are drilled to fit your chassis”

The lowered floors are supplied undrilled, so it is necessary to use a hole finder to accurately drill the underside front and inner flange holes. The outer and rear vertical flanges can be drilled using the side / rear panels as jigs, with the floor in its correct fitted position.

Edit to add 5/32” hole finder:

I just cut most of the shank off a 5/32 rivet, put in a drill, spun it against a grind stone to get a centralised point on the steel shank. Improvised hole finder albeit a bit fiddly to hold in place to tap the ally panel to get the first ref point. Then used old floor for the rest!

Thanks for the guidance,it's a job I would like to attempt but realistically I'll probably end up calling Arch.
