w111 rear floor panel wanted

Hi there
I found some nasty holes in the floor panel of my w111 1967 250 se coupe. And have spoken to Niemöller in Germany and they have told me that the part is no longer available. As the coupe are very rare it’s not looking good I have managed to find out that the fintail saloons have exactly the same panel, So my question is does anyone know where I can source the floor panel that sits under the rear seat of a fintail or a W111 coupe?
Any help would be greatly appreciated please anything even an old fintail that could possibly have the rear panel cut out.
Thanks Jason
ps i have attached a few pics of the part i really need mine in the white coloured floor the red one is an example of another cars.
thanks

Have you considered cutting out the rust and replacing it with 18 gage steel? After you weld it in, the welds can be ground down so it looks natural to the car...

Sounds good, I will ask the panel shop to do it using 18 gauge steel he did advice it could be done but suggested I try to get a replacement panel first. Thanks

At the top of KKMFG's page, click "catalogs", then '111 Catalog' and then 'Floors'.

Hi there

Thanks for all the information it’s really great to see and hear from others who have these old lovely cars as sometimes I get very frustrated and wonder why i do it, but as we know it’s because we love these old cars.
I have another issue I was hoping someone has seen before.
The car starts fine also it may take a few goes as the cold start valve only comes on for a second but this is ok, now if I warm the car up then stop it after 10 mins and try to start it again it starts but then dies right away.
I have checked the cold Thermostat on top of the MFI pump and this gradually shuts really nicely over time. There also is a new fuel pump installed as well as new plug leads and distributor.
I have read about the fuel in the lines evaporating and this is what causes the car to not to start could anybody please shed some light on this matter As it is frustrating the hell out of me.

Thanks
