The g-body tubs are so oddly shapen that it is easier to build them with sheet metal than to buy something premade. I'm not aware of any company that makes a g-body specific mini-tub, which is what you would need to fit the odd shape. I have a max-notch also. The entire factory tub was cut out and sheetmetal was cut and bent to fit using cardboard templates.
You can't tack the tub to quarter panel without heating/burning the paint on the outside of car. Typically if car is already painted you'll just have to seam seal it....unless you attach the new tub to the already existing tub.Thats what i was looking for one that i could cut down to fit. Maybe someone should start making custom fit tubs prop would sell pretty good. I would also like to see some pics from the passenger area. Also are yall tacking them to 1/4 panel or just seam sealing them?
What did you do on the pass compartment side of the tub? Is it still stock or did you modify it?
Basicly, we just welded a strap of 1/8" steel to each side of the hinge and then cut the crescent shaped bottom off. I've seen nicer finished versions than mine, but mine works nicely and has the full range of movement.I also have a 1978 montecarlo,and want to mini-tub also,what are you guys doing to the hinges that hold deck lid? looks like you have to modify old hing to work??thanks for any help!!
