I am restoring the trunk of my 63 Series 62 Convertible. Being in Australia has the challenge of very high freight costs.To import trunk cardboards from the US triples the cost of them due to their size.
My thought is that if somebody can fill in full size dimensions to the attached diagram I will print them out full size and stick them to board and cut them out much cheaper. Or if somebody has a set they can photograph and then put the dimensions on it would be the same.
Any help or other ideas would be much appreciated.
Unfortunately i don't have the measurements, my boards are too far gone to be accurate too. But if those images that you posted are accurate as far as shape, but scaled down, you only need one measurement from an original set of boards, from any point to another. Then you just scale it until the measurements match up with the original.
If no one has the measurement you need, you can just measure the side of the trunk where the boards go, scale it to that, make up one board and test fit, and then adjust.
suggestion:: I use fusion 360 for design and it's free and has a calibrate feature where you choose any two points on an image, click calibrate and fill in what the distance would be between them, and it automatically scales the image render to that exact size. Further, it will export a CAM file that you could give to anyone with a CNC router, laser cutter, or knife that's big enough, and they could cut the pieces out to exactly match that profile.
Not sure of the accuracy of my diagrams. I was hoping to get at least an X and Y axis measurement to save some guessing.
Measuring the trunk and scaling from there is my Plan B
Fusion 360 sounds good.
When you do get the size dimension in order do post the info here so that many other may use that info to do the trunk replacement parts you are currently doing
Any special tips when doing a given repair are always welcome to help others
I do recall one post that SB in the library here that took the time to apply the paint splatter stock look to his replacement trunk lining if interested in that ( for the - I gotta be stock or die guys - LOL ! )
A good thing to have a fine looking trunk space ( for moving around the dead bodies back in the day )
Only kidding as many Mafia types owned theses cars back in the day ( 3-4 bodies - No Problem ! )
