The passenger Side floor is next! I will only be cutting out the small rusted sections of the floor rather than a large square piece.

Or at least that is what I am thinking until I take a good look at things.

The steel is only .040in thick or so.

06-30-2009 12:34 PM Driver Floor Rust Repair
The driver and passenger side floor had some rust holes. The rest of the car has ZERO cancer. Floors are easy to replace so i went to work.

I lifted the car up so that I can see what was underneath the floor. I was worried I would hit some structural members. But, there really isn't much under the footwell.

When I was cutting the floor pan I was being extra careful. If the abrasive cutoff wheel slowed down or sounded like it was struggling I would back off a bit. The dense material would be the fram rails or support rails.

I tried to cut a sqaure out to make it easier to replace the panel. There wasn't that much rust but it is just easier for me to replace a square rather than a bunch of small sections.

The final pictures shows how I started to clean the weld area as well as fixing any un-straight cuts.
