A couple would be LMC Truck Parts (www.LMCTruck.com), another would be classic parts of america (used to be chevy duty). I have used both.

If you are going to lay carpet on the floor you might consider just using plain sheet metail. I replaced the floor in my 54 with a flat sheet. No real need to use a new floor pan unless you want to lay on your back and marvel at it from under the truck when you are done. Once you have carpet on it you will be the only one to know it is there.

I've used these folks for my truck's patch panels. The panels have always fit perfectly. They mate up with the stock tin, which makes working with them a breeze. Try http://www.americanclassic.com/

I've seen patch panels from the other suppliers, but they seem to get panels that are made overseas. #1: the overseas panels tend to lack the details found on the original tin, so it tends to be more difficult to fit/work with, usually requiring modifications to fit. #2: I try to buy parts made in the US of A. It just grinds my gears to do otherwise. That's just me.

It floors me.

Try this one as well as the others.

I have just fabed up my own with some flat sheet and put some beads on them for strength. Unless your going for OEM original "resto" then it does not matter if they look exact.

There are a lot of patch panel vendors, most all the product comes from China. Classic Chevy, Brothers, LMC are a few, but the best American sheetmetal for restoration in my humble opinion is *****in Products.
