RE: Floor pan replacement



Indispensable tools for the demo job:

Spot weld cutter

Air chisel

Cut-off wheels

 

When it comes to carpet install. One of the members here gave a great tip to melt holes with a soldering iron.  Seat bolt holes - seat belt anchor holes - dimmer switch - gas pedal etc.  Seals the edges and no fraying unlike any other method.  This is the one I used:

 

Weller SP80NUS Red 80 Watt

Hey Frank

 

For many years, I was a professional carpenter, so that mantra is now part of my DNA.  But I still greatly appreciate your wisdom!

Hey Russ,

 

You most def will want to fit and weld the three floor pans in all together - a few over lapping seams to deal with where all 3 pans join.  Only thing I would have done differently is added nutplates on the side for retractable seatbelts from Seat-Belt-Planet..... Wish that every time we are fishing around for that loose seat belt on the sides.  LOL

 

 

 

You will need a couple of these for the center hump at any rate - the ones they send with the pan are kinda bulky in the tight space by the driveline..........

 

Feel free to email me direct.  I can resend you the pics and help with other detail info as you progress.

I have finally decided to reboot my long stalled 62 Dart restoration.  I must admit that Ricky Hall's short series on floor pan replacement was a catalyst in this decision.  The new pans are on the way as I write this.  So, my question for today is directed at Ricky but certainly any other tips and advice are welcome.  Did you replace the main pan and rear footwells at the same time, or did you leave the old rear footwells in while fitting and welding the main pan? 

 

Thanks

  Russ
