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.

Just make sure the overlap welded sections get PLENTY of seam sealer. They tend to trap moisture very easy.

Dang man, you're running out of things to have to replace. Maybe you should have just cut the roof off and started welding it to new metal, lol.

Got the old piece cut out. Fitting up the new patch panel for the bottom side. Decided to just splice it in. The entire panel was underneath the upper a panel like and looked like a TON of work. I think this will suffice. Next up is deciding wether Iím going to splice in the rocker, or replace the length of it. Replacing the entire thing also may require me to remove the b pillar connecting the quarter panel I welded in already lol. Soooo I dunno
