Here is the floor all prepped and ready for the new pan.







It took some time but I got the new pan trimmed to where I wanted along with all the holes drilled for all the plug welds to the frame support assembly and the rocker. I ended up going with about 1/8-3/16" overlap on the panel.

So here the prodject is up to date. I started by welding the plug welds as I worked it into the postion then fully welded all the way around it. Once that was done I also fully welded the bottom side--lots of smoke,lol..



But here is how it turned out. The was my very first floor pan I have ever done and I think I did a pretty decent job. If anything its really strong and thats the main thing.















Once done I painted the underside and then undercoated it for full protection.

Thanks guys.This is my first ever "restoration" type of thing I have ever done. I have been in the industry (20 year chevrolet tech) for a long time and typicly do 4x4 type stuff--this stuff is new for me,lol..

I do wish we had more time to do a full 100% restoration but some things will have to be done in more of a "quick" manner.

I started stripping the engine bay monday night to clean it up/paint work and found some rust at the seam of the firewall/cowl(which I ssupsect it kind of a norma) which I will have to do a minimal repair to.

This is an amazing/emotional rollercoaster ride that I'm glad/proud I read! I hope your dad has a full recovery and I know he is proud of you and you have done an amazing job in a very short time! Keep up the good work and make sure to put up pictures of the first ride your dad takes in his dream car that you poured your heart into!
