Re: Floor pan

Kstuck67 and ss454conv,
Thank you for your thorough replies. I now fully understand what bluess454 meant. You guys are an invaluable resource. Thank you!
My 72 is all original rusted out. I'm not sure it has been on the road in the last 20 years. It's a very neglected. I just recently completed the trunk. I thought it went well and was easy by the end.
This full floor and firewall is no walk in the park. I pulled the front quarters and wheel wells today. Vacuumed out all the rust dust. Installed a shop light in the roof. I'm going to buy a few sticks of 1" square tube and get to bracing.

Sounds like you have done a few. Body is on frame. I cut out old floor. Slide new floor in from top. Get in place and put bolts in. Then begin securing using screw and then start welding? just trying to get a basic idea of what your saying? If floor is pur in from top? Do you remove inner rockers and braces from new floor?
Thanks in advance

Re: Floor pan

Also . . . be very careful to not cut the floor support braces unless you plan on replacing them. Fortunately for me, my floor support braces were in good shape but I did have to drill some "landmark" holes from the bottom of the floor near the edges of the braces (drill up into the cabin) so that I could see where to cut floor metal from above.

Re: Floor pan

I need a floor in my 71. My inner and outer rockers are near perfect so do I really want just the floor or floor with inner rockers? It seems like people say itís easier to do the floor with the inners. I am planning on using AMD floor pan. Thoughts?
