If things get moving again, i'd be curious to know about potential costs of having some cut to a different shape. My car uses a panel of the same material, but it's different in shape. I could probably find a homes for several sets.

Hi Guys,

Tom Wilson sent me this picture of dimensions of his kick panels. If anyone has their's out, double check them to make sure they will fit.

Oops. That wasn't supposed to be posted yet. Mark has a version with the verified dimensions, which I will have Tom post when I get them. We have drawings for a Series III 250 2+2, a Series II 330 2+2 and a 1967 365 2+2. Anyone who wants to purchase these panels will need to check these drawings to make sure they will fit your car.

O.K. Here are the PDFs for everyone to check:

http://www.tomyang.net/cars/kickpl_365_11x17.pdf
http://www.tomyang.net/cars/kickpl_250_8x11.pdf

One thing to consider with a GTE is the hole in the panel. All GTEs have this hole, but it is there for those with electric windows. A crank is supplied and the hole allows access to crank the window when, ...er, if the motor fails. It's noy easy to remove the machined collar that fits in this hole because it's peened in place, so if it's damaged, you may have to have a new one made up. You could also consider not having the hole cut, but that would deviate from original. Your call.

Postby mark » Thu Aug 04, 2005 8:08 pm

Hi Guys:

OK, I will bring a copy of the 250 plates with me to the Tom "squared" party in Monterey for any and all to see and touch. Hopefully then we can
firm up the order....

Hi can't make Montery this year but could sure use a set of kick panels for a 365 2+2 if possible count me in.



Thanks,Chris

The original 365 material is a herringbone pattern. So far I have not located anything close to the original texture and pattern. Therefore, if 365 owners want plates cut, it will have to be from the same material that the 250 and 330 share, which is INCORRECT for the 365 gt 2+2.

Better than nothing though!

Thanks for the info Mark.I think I'll hold off on my order,the ones on my car are all right for now.
Have fun in Montery I would suggest locking your car if there is a Tom Shaughnessy sighting!

Greetings:

Put me down for a pair for my '67 Series II (No. 9129). Who is running this show, now? I know Tom Wilson was doing it for a while. Thanks, whoever you are.

I had a pair of perfect NOS plates for $200 then UPS got a hold of them and bent them around a fence post. I got my money back (thanks, Paul) but it was a crime to ruin such rare parts. Oh, well.

Hi Guys, and gals. I just ordered 5 sheets of material. It will be here in about 10 days.

PM me with your requests. Ed Montini has priority for some 330 plates.
Thanks for being patient Ed. I will get back to all of you with pricing.

GTE kick plates

Postby Rudy van Daalen Wetters » Tue Sep 13, 2005 9:01 pm

Hi Mark,

I would like to be counted as an interested party in the kick plates fo rmy GTE s/n 4001. It was re upholstered and the original plates were discarded.

Thank you,

Rudy van Daalen Wetters
