I agree with Mich, floors take a part of the rigidity of the body. The proof is you said that they have moved.
You need to weld them.

ignition switch

Does anyone has an old unused ignition switch?
I m looking for one to repair my own one. The mecanism which does the contact inside of mine is missing.

Later V12 engine in the Etype S3

For those who plan to use a HE engine on the S3, this product could be helpful. This is particularly interesting for those who do not have the original engine.

Hi there,

I think you have to use a neoprene rubber.
You pre glued 2 parts, you wait enough and you press the 2 parts one on the
other.

I've just found the STD crank bush reference which is C2226 for the standard gearbox 4.
However, I don't know the sizes.
If you do have them or know how to solve this topic it will be great.
