    I don't trust and wouldn't do business with anyone that doesn't have a secure website!

    Hey Lloyd, how about a pic of your rockers? Someone might have a plan on how to make the patches. Also, I think at the cost of a floor pan plus shipping, I’d be investing in a bead roller and sheet metal. After all this isn’t a restoration, right? You just need functionality. Doesn’t need to be factory correct.

    I don't need any rockers, just the patches behind the rear wheels. I have a bead roller, and I'm thinking that's what I'm gonna do on the floors. In front of my quarters is bent up, id put those patches in if i can find them. We'll see

    Read what i said. I can fix it, but if i had a new panel I'd replace it. It's not as good as it looks to you.

    Pfft, 13 hammers. What a rookie. I have at least 50. Problem is I only can find one or two when needed.

    Sigh...

    He means he has 13 jobs and another one coming later today, not 13 hammers.
     
  26. Love 60 Chevy’s. Always have , my parents had a new 60 impala stick six. Crocus Cream green interior. Did a lot of making out in that car, until I blew the rear end when I got excited that I got a date with my now wife. True Story!

    I used Motor City Sheet Metal partial floor patches in mine. Hell of a lot cheaper than a full floor but not as pretty. I got mine from ebay but they are all over the internet. I used all 4. The full car floor not fitting an El Co seems unlikely. The Bel Air 4dr I cut up and my El Camino sure looked identical from the toe boards to the middle of the rear wheel houses. The only differences I noticed were brackets and stuff. Good luck finding the quarter patches. I need the driver's for my bucket.
     
  29. Good for you! Never give up on a dream!

    I got an email back from "black car auto parts" on the patch panels, they said they have the left side only. But they told me to reply by email if i want them and they'll give me payment instructions, i just deleted the email. I'll find what i need eventually. ;)
