I have a 67 and was wondering if I should change the body mount rubber bushings first before I replace the floor pans. I will replace the full floor pans?(corrosion ain't it a B*&^#)

Thanks In Advance!

I want the body to be as strong as possible before I pull it off the frame, so I'm thinking I'll replace the floor pans and trunk floor first. Maybe I'm just being paranoid.

You'll definitely want to replace the bushings. After 32 years of weight on them I'm sure that they've got to be no good.

Since rust is your problem I'll bet that those body bolts won't come off easy so the time to get at these demons will be when your old floor is cutaway. Don't mistake a rotating bolt head for a rotating bolt - I twisted the heads off two bolts off what was a rust-free convertible.
You should do the bushings one side at a time or you'll be re-aligning the body to the frame and it isn't fun.
