What are they doing, replacing the trunk floors in your cars?

Talking Looks like Randy is about (m)

to do some major modification stiffening to the structure.
Is there a difference in the MZ3 rear trunk pan between those two years?

I don't think so, but I didn't compare part numbers to verify.

Part numbers stay the same floor. Many times they change things and keep the same part number though.

Brent - those are replacement floorboards for Randy and Sue's whips. Look at the pictures in Ron's post on the subject. The rectangular hole is where the battery tray goes.

See it now?

I feel like I am looking at one of those magic eye posters. I will get it.

Are the 99 and 01 panels different?
