I had every other floorpan panel replaced, but I've been moving house whilst this has been going on so it was inevitable something would get missed, it is what it ism and i'll never see it.
Yes there are rubber plugs for those large holes. There are six in the cab and some in the spare wheel well if I remember correctly. Classic Alfa has them or find them used.

I would have that hole cut in. Get locating dimensions to give to you body man. There likely should be a recess around the hole as you will see in the other locations but that is hard to repro by hand.

Functions as a drain if you remove the rubber plug.

FWIW

Thanks, i'll see what can be done, I do remember having a discussion about originality because that panel is original except for the patch. Heads been a shed whilst moving house though so who knows

You can see more of his stuff here on his Facebook page

To see what this area should look like start here on my restoration: During repair

And a repair finished shot: This area finished

Hi Nigel,

Hope you are well.

Should have it back by end of Summer, the work rate of the guy doing it is pretty awesome.

He picked it up yesterday and sent some pics, next step is reskin doors, do some final filing and tweaking, prime it then spray the floor pan, interior and engine bay.
