59 country sedan wagon sheetmetal

Hello everyone, I am looking for new floor sections for my 59' country sedan wagon, basically I can touch the ground with both feet on the drives side, and also the rear body mounts near the tailgate. And I would like to find the stamped aluminum trim at the opening of all four of the doors. Any site or information were I can buy these new would be greatly appreciated.....Thanks

That is the name of a company that makes pans for lots of cars. You can find them on the web. Another friend you want to know is a company called EASTWOOD. If it comes down to it their tools will help you make your own. I am just finishing both front floor pans and the drives side toe pan. I purchased Eastwood's tool for making an over lay edge. Dropped the new pan in and spot welded. I don't have a spot welder, so I found a mobile guy in the yellow pages. He did all the welding in a couple of hours. $150. Beats dragging my feet. Oh, another good tool was the small hobby die grinder I got at Sears. They have a cutting wheel and you can get the old stuff out fairly easily with it. Project took me 9 evening and 6 hrs on Saturday.

Make your own

You might have to make your own. When taking off the old stuff be carefull not to over do it. Look under the car for areas that SEAM. Keep away from them by half an inch. If you want to do your own, let me know. I just did my 52 -210 and it only took me a couple of weeks working in the evenings. It really is not too hard to do. Let me know if you want to try it. Oh, check my gallery for a couple of photos of the seam.

Thanks for the input, my actual trade is precision sheetmetal, so fabricating up some patch panels wouldnt be out of my league. However, no matter how good I am, it will still not be as good as the original, that will bug me even though its just a floor, I really want 100% on this project. If I cant find the pieces I'm looking for, than I have no other choice, the floor is the only thing stoping the body from going out for body work and paint. I appeciate the feed back though...

Question

-Mill Supply- shows floor and toe pans for the 57/58. I wonder how far away from a 59 they are? They should be similiar as basically all three are the same design. Maybe sectioning the 57/58 to give a near perfect appearance?

I just stumbled across -this site- while carousing with my browser and they offer pans for 57/59. Give them a call.
