Floor Pan

(Pages: Two, Three, Four)

First I removed all of the seats to get a good look at the sheet metal. It looks like someone beat it with a hammer. There are some holes behind the drivers seat and a lot of surface rust. Both seat brackets have been cut up. I'm not sure why this was done.

Driver's side: Passenger side:

I purchased the new stamped floor pan from Restoration world.
The Subframe connectors and body mounts (with bolt kit) from Detroit Speed & Engineering.

The first thing I did was drop the fuel tank. Just two bolts holding the straps on and a couple of clamps on the filler neck. I removed the B&M shifter, steering wheel and heater box.

Okay... here we go. I started cutting on the floor. It's pretty slow going. This is where I was at after about three hours of work.

[10-25-04]
Four more hours and more metal gone.

[10-26-04]
Another four hours today and most of the interior metal is gone. The passenger side floor has been separated from the rocker panel.
