After the roof work was completed, we started on the floor pans. Probably didn't need it but decided to put in a 1 piece floor pan. Not knowing what I was doing, I cut this floor pan out in several sections then drilled the spot welds at all the seams. A lot of grinding, cutting, welding.

I've got a 67 Nova that needs a new pan. Not sure how to support the car to insure against any movement/twisting. Some say you need bracing in the cab. Where did you place your floor jacks? Did you use any internal bracing? Thanks, Mike

I don't like the zero rust product or the POR 15 , I think its inferior to a product Rust Bullet. Have you used this product?
Only issue is it is very expensive

I like what you have done. I'm wondering if a powerplasma cutter could have helped you for this. I am thinking about buying one

Nice work & what a huge job!  Just finished replacing a trunk filler panel on my 66 SS Chevelle & thought it was a big job - not so much in comparison.  Not a believer in rust "cover-ups" or "encapsulate" products either but Por 15 epoxy putty has saved several small projects.

+Jim Daniell Ok, yea not familiar with that product, I am sure they have developed new products under their branding, but I have seen a few examples of the regular POR15 Rust encapulating paint flake, peel and crack off. It's my understanding that it dries very hard and becomes brittle and cracks as the chassis flexes. I know a lot of people swear by it. To your point, there is no substitute for clean, dry, rust free metal as a solid foundational substrate to work with!

+72 Monte Thanks man, not sure on the song. It's just the standard royalty free youtube friendly music. I spend hours combing through libraries of the stuff to find one decent song here and there, lol, it's a new one I found.

+turbocobra dang I love the droplet and.melt.concept that is a great way of explaining...get the area cleaned now and.mounting all the parts..thanks Gary!!

+CountrySideClub Well, we did some things right, but we made a lot of mistakes also, particularly in the bodywork, blocking, priming area. I ended up with way too much material on the car the way I did it. Not much you can do about the trash unless you have a perfect environment, but yeah runs are tough. I have found that on small parts, it's best to turn the fluid control down, and make more passes within a given coat, and watch the material hit the panel, let it go on as droplets, and keep making passes until the droplets start to melt together to get that right balance between getting a run, and the dreaded dry spray / orange peel texture... It's tricky for sure... Especially if you don't spray everyday like you and I.

+turbocobra I am going to hit u up later...the parts you seen I cut them all back down scheduled to spray tommorow morning...I also have like a makeshift both..will send you the picks...yea I got some pictures of DARKNESS..I tell you what looking back at the photos I had no idea what I was doing but you really did it right from the start!!! I really really want to focus on the trash and runs...I mean I have done this enough to where I shouldn't be making the same errors you know

+CountrySideClub Yea, there was alot of work that went into the body of this car before we started making videos, wish we had videos of it, but good to at least have some pictures and commentary. I bet you probably did the same kind of work on Darkness back in the early days. You got any old pics or videos? You get that gas tank finished up?
