So as documented in earlier posts I drug home a 70 year old gasser project and *gasp* the floor pans are bad. This really isnt that big of a deal, but the question arises because Im used to working on muscle car era stuff. I found out the pre made patches for the 49-54 are about triple what ones for my 67 Firebird are price wise. This is a race car, I dont overly care how factory it looks. Its going to be covered in heat/sound proofing panels anyway. If I use a step thicker metal, (probbaly 16g) than what was likely factory it would probably be fine right? I know bead rolling ads strength but in the foot panels I cant see it being that important.
