Looking for information on what you all do for trunk pans. I can't find a single vendor that sells trunk pans, and I'll need to replace the trunk pan on our 56 this year sometime. Is there some hidden place that sells trunk pans for these cars that I just haven't been able to find? Or is this going to be a custom made part?

If custom, if anyone has a lead on who can do this in the mid-west I'm open to hearing about it! Thanks all.

For the '55-'56 cars, you'll need to either make them yourself or get them out of a parts car. Big M may be able to get you a good pan. Real Steel Replacements on facebook may be able to help you out as well, but I'm not sure he has worked with the '56 cars yet.

I had to make the one for my '56 Plymouth, but I didn't even attempt to form the spare tire well. I now have the spare mounted horizontal on the axle hump.

Thanks guys, I'll give Big M and Real Steel a call. Very much appreciate the answers! Gary, do you have a template of your custom?

No, sorry, except for the spare well, the bad part was mostly flat so I just formed it to fit.
