Left & Right Replacement Pan Halves
.035" (20 Gauge) Thick
Jack Mounts & Seat Mounts Included
Brand New Replacement left and right side floor pans come complete with seat rails and jack mount. These are complete length & width floor pan halves and fit 1954 through 1970 VW Beetles. (Purchasing front & rear patch sections will NOT make a complete floor pan). The 1946-70 VW floor pan features inverted "L" seat rails. (The 1971-72 floor pans have "T" seat rails.). Installation will require welding inner edge to chassis- just like original factory floor pans. Outer edge bolts to heat channel. Floor pan ships with black rust inhibitor. Floor pans will need to be sanded and primed prior to installation. Made in Brazil.
Note: The rear crossmembers and jack supports may not be welded to the floor pan!
We are doing all we can to keep the price of the floor pans as low as possible and loose pieces allow us to use a much
smaller box. As we and many other floor pan installers recommend using the original crossmember, this actually saves time
during the installation as the crossmember does not have to be removed from the replacement pan. We cover the process in
our floor pan installtion video.
Our Expert's Take:
If your pans are beyond repair, don't waste your time with a cheap fiberglass patch, rivited in piece of sheet metal or worse, a piece of wood. If your pans are rusted any more than just beyond the battry tray, save the time and repair the pan properly with a complete pan half. It takes less effort to install a full half than to trim out, clean up, and seam weld in a patch panel. Installing new floor pans can be done with the body on the chassis but will require trimming and of course welding for proper installation.

With the current global economy and supply chains being strained, pricing on standard and heavy duty floor pans may be the same.
Floor pans are made from .035" (20 Gauge) Sheet Metal.
There is NO substitute for original German Floorpans. If you still have them it may be worth the cost and effort to restore your OEM pans. It may strike you as odd for a business to advise you to keep your original parts, however we've learned from personal experience and trying out multiple floorpan manufacturers over the years that there simply is nothing better than OEM. As classic VW restorers ourselves, we know it is not always possible to restore a floorpan that has been rusted out after 30-40 years of weather and rock salt. This is why we offer the best aftermarket metal floorpans we can find. They are stamped from solid metal and guaranteed to fit.Test fit your seats to the floor pan before welding the floor pans in place!
Test fitting your seats before installation insures that you don't do twice the work! Seats, floor pans, and even the chassis could have been swapped so make sure your test fit your seat to the floor pan before installing it.A replacement pan to body seal
and floor pan hardware are recommended whenever installing new floor pans.
