Fabricating #3, #4 and #5 attachment points for the P-15 floor braces.

Recommended Posts

My solution for fabricating a floor brace attachment #3.  This is a universal brace PN802 from EMS

 

It almost makes itself.  Just need to fab the sides and this will splice into the floor brace system that was original to the car.

This is the solution from the same part for attachment points #4 and #5.  Also shows how I plan to splice it into the original brace structure.

 

Not quite as clean as the solution for #3, because I cut notches for the bolts from the frame mount, but it works.  These were the smallest aftermarket braces I could find.  Ideally I would have found a brace the same width as the original.  On the positive side, the wider brace will cradle the original brace structure when I splice it in.

Did you use the same bolt size to mount the body? if so do you happen to know the size? thanks Dave

Same as original for diameter and thread count (3/8 - 24), but won't be able to confirm lengths until I get it mounted.   The original hardware was shot so we are working on a fab which may end up changing the lengths of the bolts.  Washers, nuts and rubber pads are no real issue but we can't locate the sleeves used for these so that will take some thinking.  I'll post pictures as we progress.
