Putting in a Floorpan

I have a 37 half ton dodge truck with virtually no floor in it. The remainder of the cab is in really good shape. I've braced the cab well from the inside and tack welded the doors in place to prevent any flexing. Not sure about how to do the floor. Do I run some kind of frame work to weld panels to ? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the site 37Doj
I don't know what your floor looks like but here are a couple of pics of one I'm doing for my 57 chevy truck. It is made from 16gauge steel. I had to cut it and bend it to fit but it should be o.k. You may be able to do something similar with your truck.

Floor pan

Thanks,
The pictures are a help. The floor is rusted all the way out to the bottom of the rocker panels under the doors which are still in decent shape. Once I get the floor pan in and can rock and roll on this project. I have access to a full machine shop at work also which is a plus. Good luck with your 57.
