S3 DD Lowered floor missing dimensions

Hello all,

I'm getting some lowered floors made using the dimensions that Paul kindly sent me, appear to have come from Holland.  The fabricator says he's missing the dimensions indicated in the annotated diagram below.  Can anyone help me?

Thanks in anticipation

Why not buy them direct from Arch Manufacturing, they make them?

Arrow Up

Much easier Bruce will send them over complete with all the parts required, rivets, chassis rail etc.

Well I've kind of committed to getting them made with this guy to be honest.

However what do Arch charge for a pair?  I can see what they are on the CC website which frankly is silly money for a bent up sheet of NS4 ally.

I can't read the figures on the drawing, but it does look as though applying that old Greek blokes theorum would give you your answers?

That is a *very* good suggestion - I'd like to think I would have thought of it if it hadn't have been so early in the morning! :)

5^2 = 3^2 + 4^2   etc ;)

Actually it's not quite as straightforward as that as the some of the fold lines are near to parallel but not quite - so the shape isn't a right angled triangle.

Any other ideas?

You've only got to be a bit out on the radius of folds, angles of the sides etc. and you'll have horrible problems fitting it. Arch make them on jig which is tried and tested. I really would go with what other people have suggested and give them a call.

I went to Arch on a Saturday morning, drove in, floor removed, lowered floor installed drove home all done in a couple of hours, and not expensive.  Why do things the hard way?

Out of interest what would the going rate be for this work (from Arch).  Just interested.
