i'm aware of the knowledge on floor boards on this forum and i have scoured what i have, so don't jump me for it. i started working on my 57 buicks floor board today. i knew they were soft under the carpet, but i didn't know how soft... ripped out the seats and the crapet only to find the infamous midwest powdered floor board. for those of you out west, thats when you vacuum up 40% of your floor board with a shop vac. so, my gas pedal plate has rusted itself off, the back driver side has been cut out into a 2ftx2ft hole, the front by the toe board is soft and needs replaced, the sides by the door rails where the carpet tucks under is a holy mess. most or less this cars been bless by the Vatican, if you catch my drift. so, i could patch all this together and have it looking like a scare crow's face, or just by new boards. the trans tunnel is very nice. just everything to the sides of it. i have limited tools welder' grinder etc. and limited money, and i'm not into the whole resto mod thing so i'm just kind of going with what i know. but when would you guys says enough is too much and call in and order a new board? thank you, i'm sorry if this happens to be a redundant thread, i looked i swear it.
