30 coupe ft floor
Has anyone used the front floor from Speedway's for the recessed firewall on a 30/31 coupe. My coupe is sitting on So-Cal's pinched nose highboy frame and I installed their 4" recessed firewall and I need to install the front floor. The picture shows the floor flat with a bolt on hump for the tranny and two sides but my 350 is sitting above the floor height all the way back to the rear flange. Which means I will have to fabricate a tunnel for the center of the floor. Does anyone have journal pictures of a fabricated front floor. I want to use 16 gauge steel cuz I don't want to use wood but am not sure where to begain. Pops

Where to begin? Begin with some poster board and a pair of sissors. Honest, just cut yourself a pattern that will do what you want it to do. You may need to cut this pattern a half dozen times or more before you have the one you want, but it is a lot cheaper and easier than cutting metal!

Start with that, cut your pattern out then transfer that to metal and bend it to shape, that is all there is to it.
