105 Spider rear side trim
« on: October 23, 2020, 10:32:31 PM »
My 1976 Spider is due to have some accident damage repaired, so it looks like I will be addressing a number of other issues which have accumulated over the years.

One of these is the state of the rear interior side trim panels, which do not appear to be readily available and were cracked and brittle when I last disturbed them 17 years ago.  I am fearful they will simply crumble when I try to remove them, since last time I had to Araldite plastic reinforcements myself when I couldn't find a motor trimmer willing to attempt a repair.

Now I know I could simply carpet the area, but I am keen to keep the car original and have been rather fastidious with not making any changes, which makes the car rather special in my opinion.

I would therefore be very interested in any one else's experience with addressing this particular issue

Thanks for your assistance bonno, but neither of these suppliers stock the item I am looking for.

I attach the only illustration I am able to find, listed as item no 4 in red.

The following pages provide consecutive part numbers for left and right side trim, since the boot release is always mounted on the LHS irrespective of the driver's side.

105.95.62.079.00/3 LHS (red)
105.95.62.080.00/3 RHS (red)

Hopefully someone has had this problem before me and either found a reproduction part or an alternative work around of some sort.

Cheers

It looks like no one else has found this to be an issue.

I guess any surviving spiders have done so with their rear internal side panels switched over to carpet.

That's possibly why replacements are not available anymore.

Anyhow I have managed to use Q-bond to sort-of save them and they are back in the car, but I am still not game to try to fix up the surface.
