Pics of boot floors

Recommended Posts

Looking for side by side comparisons of the spare wheel wells (minus contents) of vanilla, 16v sport and GTI etc. Any pics? is it just the wheel well that is different or more involved?

Cheers

normal is crap.

sport is a half but a spacey fits because there is no battery.

gti is different again with a battery tray in it.

Yes but a picture paints a thousand words and all that....

Was looking into options for battery relocation and maybe centre exhaust while at it. Probably just mod the existing well tbh.

Thanks, anyone know the sport part number and prices for the new panels?

Guessing i'd have to chop the bottom out anyway on a sport well if i wanted a battery and skinny spare in there together, or find a teeny tiny battery?

It's a couple of hours work (by a competent welder, not a shaven ape like myself) to cut and adapt the standard boot floor to fit a centre exhaust and spacesaver wheel.

Be advised, if the new exhaust is of a larger bore than standard, it *may* end up catching on the brake lines and bias valve, and therefore need a bit of tweaking to fit.

Also the rear bumper needs notching for the tailpipe to fit.

Handily, I know a fella who does it, so if you're ever in the North Yorkshire area... :D

I'll most likely just mod the existing well, but would like it to look oem not DIY. So a factory panel if they are reasonable money could still be the way to go. Exhaust system will be large bore otherwise why bother.
