5-Bar Floor Panels, Etc.

Do you think that there would be a market for 3mm 5-bar patterned replacement floor panels, seat-boxes, and rear load-space liners (including one designed to span full width over a drawer system and protect the interior from mud, spills etc). The heavier plate should add minimal overall weight but the added mass should also reduce road noise/exhaust noise transmission to the interior. They could also be pre-sprayed with a noise damper like CAE VB-1X-Pro to further reduce vibration.

The idea would be to produce everything as flat-pack to be riveted together on-site to help keep shipping costs low. Then in the future other plate pieces could be done to help reduce overall cost of shipping every bit we need over from the UK.

The idea would actually be to replace the existing seat box entirely, for most purposes I'm not a big fan of layers since they tend to promote corrosion.

Nobody does what I mean for the rear load space though. What I'm thinking is line rear space floor with noise-barrier like VB4 from CAE (there are many other similar products) then fit a drawer system, then another layer of VB4 across from wheel arch outer skin to wheel arch outer skin, then do a full width liner with up-turned sides and front to contain any liquid spills. This however is more of a personal style/preference thing so doing the main floor panels, seat box, and bulkhead kick panels/footwell liners seems like something with more appeal.

Don't know if the seat boxes are a "bolt together" part. Meaning the original boxes are spot welded which when bolted to the sill bars and the tranny tunnel give it fairly significant strength. Worried it won't be the same if you just bolted it together. If you powdercoat the pieces corrosion should not be much of an issue to use as a bolt on and you could place sound proofing material in between like a sandwich. The rear liner is also interesting.
