    Default 4CV Floor Pans How to Video

    A while back, I asked about floor pans, and I have seen another poster in need of 4CV pans too.
    Lucky for me I have a friend 5 minutes away who is one of the world's most skilled fabricators.
    Since there was nothing available Jere started from scratch.
    Here's a short You Tube video of the process

    As you can see, it's not exactly rocket science, but Jere does make it look easier than it is. His knowledge and welding/fab skills are prodigious, he has built most of the tooling in his shop.

    I like the forming "heads" for the little air chisel.

    Yes, that impressed me too, especially the ply template with the forming slots for the floor bracing "grooves".

    Duplicating pressings on OEM panels has always been a real stumbling block. When they are not full length of the panel it's usually impossible to form with massive distortion of the entire replacement piece.

    I can see the air chisel/ recessed template approach is both fast and able to accurately controlled, and when all else fails a bit of heat would move the process along.
