So hereís where I run into my issue (wich is why Iím re-doing this in the first place. But I have a hide gap in between the floor pan and the crossmember. Is this normal when installing the floor pans? Or do I need to cut around the metal around here to get it to sit down flush so I can weld to the crossmember?

Got the floor pans down better. Just used a self tapping sheet metal screw to pull the panel down onto the frame. Worked pretty well. Started with the door area then worked my way over. Looks much better I think. Iíll clean everything up and shoot some pics later. I worked on the thing for what seemed like an hour and a half and ended up being about 4 lol

I'm no expert on the subject, but that sounds good to me.

Lol itís seriously does. But yeah that pans looks SO much better underneath. I bought a new Milwaukee 18v grinder and holy crap this thing is a saving grace. I have a nice compressor and grinding wheels, but it doesnít do justice to the electric grinder. Itís a frekin beast

When your replacing the panels are you overlapping them or butt welding the back in? Is it more a preference or one way better than the other?

I overlapped about an inch over. Smaller distances in some areas as wel. Just depends.
