First set of homemade floor pans for the box

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by PeteMattersen, Jul 21, 2008.

  1. Well i have two days of solid work into getting my floor braces straightened up and re mounted, as well as building the new floor tins. I was going to go with aftermarket replacement floors but due to cost and availability i opted to build my own. I laid out some 18 ga and got a rough outline cut and fit into place. Once i got it trimmed down to fit i cleco'd the panel in and laid out my beads as to not interfere with the floor braces. I have one side welded in and tonight plan on getting back out there and welding the other side in. Thats all for now, as soon as i get a driveshaft; the tunnel and under the back seat area will get built.
    Over and out,
    Matt
