Just a small question. I want to cut off the studs that hold all the wheel arch liners, trays under the floor and brackets that hold brake pipes etc. The original ones are well past their best and I want to cut them off and weld on new ones. I have done a major amount of welding to the sills and arches and I want to finish off all the small details before I finish the chassis work.

Can these be got or is it simply a matter of cutting some screws and welding them on?

I'm sure I saw a post on here or a Porsche facebook group where someone had done this.

They'd cut off the old ones then tacked or glued sOme screws with the same thread pattern and diameter to the body using the flat screw head as the base for the weld or glue. Not sure how you search for it though. It looked decent when done so could be the easiest option rather than finding new studs.

I would be tempted to cut them off with at little damage to the galvanised sheet metal (ideally none) and then glue on new bolts to minimise future corrosion

TBH I would not worry about retaining the integrity of the original galvanized layer if the sills have had major weld work done. The welds will always be the first spots for rust and proper rust protection treatment is required all around.

I have the same problem. I was going to bond on some of these with structural epoxy, but I may change my mind and have them welded on by my local welding place, as they're only a few hundred yards away and are super cheap and high quality.


Whatever you go for, make sure you go stainless so they last.

I’m starting to think stainless screws on a small plate, say 10mmx10mm and weld it on. I have 1 that has caused a rotten patch so I’ll have to sort that anyway. Compared to what I have done, it’s a very simple job.

I wouldn’t be keen on glueing of any sort. It’d have to be welded for me but I can easily do that myself.

The patch needed under the passenger seat. I have it all cleaned back and won’t need much bigger than a 50p sized patch

I need to do this too. Do you have a link for those?

Contact Peter Robinson at 9meister - I got some of the original weld on type last year

I used these ;

Ground the old studs off and secured the new ones with JB weld epoxy.
