OK, I'm at the point where I had to decide if I was going to buy floors for under the seats or make them. Recap: At this point, the guys from Bit chen Products have benefitted from me buying:
Front Floorboards (I ended up buying new toeboards, because I originally bought the ones for a stock firewall)
Inner cowl supports
EMS for the outer cowl supports and rear gravel pan (Not in yet)
I decided to BUY the 1st and 2nd section rear floorboards and trunk floor. Could I have made them? Yes. Would they look as good? Probably not. Although I could bead the pans, they have structurally reinforced pieces that are engineered to fit the tunnel. The tunnel and rocker supports looked like the biggest obstacle. I intend on making a console that extends from the dash to the rear package shelf, so the tunnel appearance wasn't critical, but ..... I think I would have spent more time than it was worth. Besides, if it doesn't look good, I can blame it on someone else! LOL
This shot showed the drivers side done, but not the passenger side. I felt it was relevent only to show the welding around the perimeter. The cowl flange was originally on the outside, but is now hidden , to smooth the firewall.
In the previous pic, you can see some welding marks, caused from welding the inner flange and additional supports to the backside of the firewall. Every little bit helps make the body strong.
