Default Volvo 242/244 vs 245 trunk floor

I need a new trunk floor for my 242 and of course those parts are not reproduced. How different are the trunk floors of 242/244s and the wagons (245)? When closely looking at trunk floor pictures from both models it seems the 245 uses the same sheet metal but has some added brackets and frame rails.
Can I just cut off the extra sheet metal? Do the wagons and sedans share the same trunk floors as a basis?

Thanks

242/244:

The panels under the back seat of the wagons are thicker and therefore different to make up for the loss of the stiffening cross brace behind the rear seats in the sedans.

Don't know about the trunk area.

I marked the sheet metal that was added by the factory on the wagons. Without them I think the hump over the axle and trunk floor are identical.

According to the parts catalog the panels are the same for sedan and wagon.
