There was a fellow in Barrie Ontario Canada named Rob Martel who used to reproduce such parts but I believe he no longer does. However, there is a fellow in Ontario Canada by the name of Chris Lunn that does reproduce some of our Tiger/Alpine sheet metal parts. He usually does this as a favor to his friends and Rootes aficionados. He is also located in Ontario, Canada near Sarnia (about an hour or so from Detroit). His e-mail address is: email@example.com> and his telephone number is (519) 899-2313. Chris (and a group of his fellow Canadian "BRIT" car owners) have joined myself and John Logan on some past Michigan TE/AE member cruises and so mention our names when and if you contact him and that you belong to TE/AE. I am not sure if he makes the part you need.

I have had the chance to use many metal panels from Chris Lunn over the last ten years. He told me last year that he was not interested in expanding the business and did not feel the need for any promotion. You will be lucky to have heard of him if you can get metal parts for your Sunbeam from him.

For the past 15 years,I have been stamping floor pans for Alpines and Tigers .
Which I have supplied Rob Martel with all his floor pans, which he called his own
and sold everywhere. I still stamp the floor pans and have several sets in stock for sale.
My name is Dave Lameront my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested .
I have been told my panels are very correct and I have shipped them all across North America,
with no complaints.

Hi: What else do you make for Sunbeams? thx

Hi: I noted in your photos that the stampings are just that, stampings. There are no roll or steps on the panel edges to duplicate the correct shape and varied steps in the original floor systems. These things (shrink & stretch) would still have to be done to a correct pattern. The correct rear floor buckets should also include the roll up the back bulkhead to the deck seam. But it certainly is a very helpful start. thx

I have two S1V cars to be taken apart. I bought em as one day driving my wife’s 64 Falcon I got rear ended. Long story short it was a slight battle to keep the car as the ins. co. wanted to total the car. I bought a whole post sedan for 100.00 and saved the car. Hope that never happens again but look at the guy in the CAT forum "wounded Tiger"
