... somebody know what these holes are for ?
They are not to fix the body on the frame ... because the frame is not on this place ... and they are not for the
fueltank this brakets are on an other place and not fixed on woodparts of the body. And what fills this hole ... is there a tin tub in and how this looks like ?? Dave you posted this greaat pictures from Steve Babinsky's 1-36 Sport .. do you see a chance to get some pics from under need the rear seat ?

Thanks in advance

Karl

Karl, comparing to Mr. Babinsky's original and unmolested 136 Sport Phaeton here in New Jersey, those holes are not used. Perhaps redundant from some other use of that body member? Photo sent to you.

Sorry it took so long to get you an answer.

Dave

Dave, thank you for this helpful information’s and the picture.
It is as I though.. there is a tin tub into this big
rectangle hole. Its missing ..so I have to build one.
Your answer was fast enough .. because. I´m nearly done now
with the bodywork. I had to change all rotten wood under the
doorsills, .. rebuild the whole floor, .. rebuild the front seat backrest-construction. By the way .. if I have to rebuilt this kind of curved corners ..etc.. I use aircraft plywood (1/16”)1,5 mm. It is easy to bent it in shape. If you use additional a steamer tool the wood will stay in curve if you fix it over night. Then glue together (PU Wood glue) so much layers as you need. After you brushed it with inlet (?) wood primer 2 or 3 times and let it dry over night.. it´s strong like concrete. But you can use also Sheetmetal or aluminum sheet. But ask your upholsterer what he think about if he has to nail or staple this kind of areas.
