Hi Chris

My car is a 74 model. The cover plate is different to yours, however the following information may help.

The cover plate is curved to match the contour of the boot lid, however it is not a compound curve so can easily be formed.

The plate on my car is approx 10" x 4". The thickness is 0.05" (1/20")

It is non-magnetic. My guess is it is an alloy of aluminium or work hardened aluminium.
