I'm curious ...what gauge metal in the flat part of the floor? And the top, and the tunnel? Also, what did you coat the underside with?

On another topic, but related to my questions above. I'm working on a 40 Ford that had new floor panels installed without benefit of the frame. I had to cut out almost all of the work and re-instal starting with bolting the new floor to the frame.as should have been done by the idiot that charged this old guy $7000. The old man is in his 80s and bought the 40 in 58, did a mild nose and deck job then. Now he wants it restored to factory with flathead. He originally came to me for the floor job but I was busy. The guy he took it to said the frame would be in his way in his shop. Aaarrrgg!!!! I've got it together and am working on fitting the doors, fenders and running boards. I personally don't do bondo or paint, just the metal work, but I'm bolting the body onto the frame probably for the last time and wanted to know what products to use on the underside. He has the frame coated with something really tough, black and shiny.

Sorry took so long to get back to you... The floor is coated with SPI Epoxy Primer... Great stuff.. The metal on the floor is 16 gauge and the tunnel is 18 gauge.. The top is 16 gauge.. The braces under the floor is 1x2'' 11 gauge tubing.. I hate when someone charges someone crazy money and it isn't done right... I treat everyone I build as if it was for me.. And I'm very picky.. So it has to be right.. I won't give someone anything I wouldn't want.. As long as you do it that way.. Everyone is happy...Hope this help's..

We think alike. I do everything to the best of my ability as if it were for myself. Wish I could find that guy but the old man won't tell me. He doesn't want me to go to jail.....

I know, I know. Ain't made it to jail yet in 65 years, so I guess I'm glad he won't tell me.but it is a shame that there are people out there that don't do the research and find out things like how to replace floors in a 40 Ford. Another thought just occurred to me: the company that markets those floors should include basic info like: don't try to replace floors without the frame of the car.
