    stay away from that "classicpartsforyou"guy. all he sells is crap. flat sheet metal cut roughly to shape with a few crummy beads rolled into it. useless crap.

    I did a 52 Chevy where the guy said he had purchased floor and trunk pans and he shows up with this garbage. if your plan is to screw some metal to the floor and maybe put some caulking around it go ahead and waste your money.

    if you want it done right stay away. garbage. crap. rip-off. junk.

    hammer them out yourself, or find some originals to cut out of another car.

    ...or look at STAMPED repop floor pans from another car and see if you could adapt them.

    perfect example right here:

    [​IMG]

    they call this a trunk pan for a 49-52 Chevy. stock trunk floors have several deep beads for strength, as well as 2 braces underneath, which also hold the gas tank. also missing is the depressions on the top side where the gas tank mounting holes are. this one has 3 weak beads, no access for the spare tire well. if your rust even slightly climbed up the sides a bit you need to add a piece to fill the gap since thisa is just flat sheet.

    $75.00 for this junk.

    one more thing... if you are not doing the work yourself always talk to the guy doing it before buying patch panels, regardless of the car or area that is damaged

    I owned a 54 plymouth 2 dorr hard top like 6 years ago and had a real hard time finding sheet metal. Never did find the floors. My wife bought me aftermarket outer rockers on ebay. Very nice of her but they fit terrible.

    Scott, C&C Collision Center, 541-317-8468, did a major repair on a 53 Dodge last year and found floor panels...no doubt long distance calls are free on your cell phone.

    The demand is so weak, and those who need them are cheap. So there are no stamped panels available. Best bet is to tear up a parts car and hammer the patches needed to stitch in the margins.

    I found some for my 51 plymouth, but it was looking like $1000 to buy them all. That wasn't about to happen. I borrowed a bead roller and went to town on mine. It's definitely not perfect, but it was my first time and a good learning experience! A little time consuming, but probably spent under $100 on it. O yah it's 18 guage steel.
