I need floor pans for my w114 250C

The floor pans for my 1970 250C are extremely rusty and need to be replaced. Does anybody know of a good place to find them? Are there floor pans from other models that fit? Any suggestions on searching for them? I'm in Wisconsin by the way.

Good luck. I have searched long and hard for body panels for the same car, and the only place I have found them was Adsit (Mercedes Benz Parts & Accessories - Adsit Company Inc.) and they dont have floor panels. They do however have rockers, doors, and quarter panels. There is also a company in Finland (veng something) that has body panels for this model. I asked them and was told there is a maximum size shipped to canada, from what i recall rockers where to big. I just had them made and they came out fine. Good luck and please, PLEASE let me know if you find some.

K & K Manufacturing (Sparta, MI) used to make floor pans. Don't really see why they still would, but you never know...

Yeah, I've talked to K & K and they don't have them anymore.

The first Benz I bought myself was a 114, with the same issues. After removing the seats and carpet, I used a Makita cutting tool to cut the rust out. The bottom looked like swiss cheese.

IFrom the local home improvement store, I bought sheets of same thickness metal and cut patches to fit, and welded them in. I did the same on a 108 that I still have.

If you don't have a welding rig, try making all the patches on one day and renting the welder for the next day. Well within the realm of inexpensiveness.

After patching, grind down the welds, spray on a couple cans of primer/sealant, and use rubberized sealant on the weld seams.

I also used truck bed coating on the underneath, to protect the new metal.

A new Makita will be about $60, cutting disks $5 per, sheet metal about $50 or so, spray paint $7 per can, truck bed coating at $40 per small can. No idea how much renting a welder would be...

definitely still available from ohio!!!

CHECK OUT THE LINK BELOW

1960-1975 W114 & W115

Funny enough I found the link on this same forum through a member that was asking if one of those floor pans would fit his vehicle.

An old thread worth revisiting, as my 1973 280c has more rust than I originally thought. The undercoating really hides the problem, and you don't know until you gut the interior. I'm going to look into this seller:

Thank you! It looks like these would be well worth having around. Mine is rusty in the floors too.

The picture looks like my 280c floors, but I can't tell if the piece fits for sure. How different are the 280 vs 280c floor pans?

I believe there were four body styles if w114/115:
- preface lift coupe
- preface lift sedan
- post face coupe
- post facelift sedan

I've heard that the floors are all the same, but don't know. Apparently the listing shows these floors fitting all models:

When talking about the cars in terms of models like "280" and "280c", be sure not to confuse it with the common convention of w108 and w109 cars (280s, 280se, 280sel) being called "280". I don't believe you have done this, but others, including those who sell parts often just call them "280".
