Hi Ed:
Did you get a rubber floor mat for the interior or did you go with carpets? Do you have rubber thresholds for the doors or did you find something else to replace them? I have a set of thresholds in pretty good shape but they are too brittle and I don't think they should be used except as patterns to reproduce new ones. Have you got any pics of the interior?

Floors I've seen made with rubber rolls are OK, but dont look original. Carpet looks good and muffles the road noise. If I cant match the original, I would rather have carpet.

I have thresholds, but they are pretty brittle. I would rather get new ones if I can find them. I'll post some interior pictures later.

Restoration Specialties in Pennsylvania sells ribbed rubber mat that is almost identical to the original. If you took a Dremel router and removed every fifth rib on the mat, it would be identical. Nobody is reproducing the front floor mat. Even an an NOS would now be to brittle to use. Likewise the thresholds, no one repros them and none of those from other Mopar models will fit, Dodge, Chrysler, DeSoto. There is probably a very limited market for reproduction thresholds for Plymouth wagons.

Ive seen a couple of cars done with that mat. You cant get it to lay flat on the front floorboards around the transmission hump. It just doesnt look nice like the original heat molded mats.

Can't argue with that. I may just put rubber mat in the back and a short nap carpet in the front.

Sweet! Everything looks first rate. I've followed this since the beginning and it is well worth the effort and time that it took. I'll see if I can get some pics of mine where she currently stands. I'm reassemblling the wood.

Hi Franklyn...

Panels on that one are maple, mine are mahogany. Got a new problem. ICBC wont give me collector insurance because I wont remove the surfing stickers on the rear window. Will just get regular insurance for the rest of the summer.

Wow. You did a very nice job!! Your car looks great. I am just starting on my 50 and hope to see it like yours someday. Do you know if the rocker panels for a 4 door will fit the wagon? If not do you have any suggestions for me as to where I could get some. I need a lot of floor work.

Thanks, Jim

I replied to your other post in more detail. I found a sedan with a good floor and replaced the whole floor. Lots of work, but theres not a single patch panel in the floor anywhere. Had the rockers made.
