Fuel line covers?
« on: November 14, 2019, 09:01:52 PM »
Does anyone have a drawing of the fuel line covers at the fuel tanks for the M2’s? Is anyone making reproductions? Thanks.

Logan/woodwalker took some pictures and measurements of his and sent them to me. Since then, Steve A. posted a template drawing and some pictures of his and it’s the same as Logan’s. Well naturally, the holes in my floor are completely different from both of theirs. My screw holes are closer together, have a greater edge distance and there are holes for three screws. Plus, the hole for the fuel line is farther from the tank in mine. I believe the floor is original because its age and wear & tear look to be earlier than when reproduction floors became necessary. I’ll make covers to fit it but I’m curious as to why this floor is different. Does anyone else have a similar floor?

Here's mine:
