I cut 11 Ga. aluminum plate to closely fit the shape of the rear engine tin.   Then I used a '67-'74 Bug engine seal to close the gap.  The aluminum is in three pieces to help with installation/removal.  It overlaps the bottom of the 2" x 2" square tubing frame and is screwed into the frame with self-tapping screws.  It has worked very well and is tight.    https://www.jbugs.com/product/111-705D.html

Hi

Do you have any pics of the tin from under the engine?

i need to replace my tin, my mechanic removed the engine and destroyed the tin now the car is overheating and I can’t drive the car.

can you use stainless steel instead of aluminium?

Cheers
