    FLOOR BOARDS ARE IN!!!

    I rented a welder on friday so that I could install my floorbaords and also to redo my rear suspension with the new leaf springs I got from eaton, or pst however you look at it. I got them from a guy that had less than 2000miles on them for 75 when he paid 350 for them....

    The floorbaords cost me less than 30 for the 20g material and fit pretty good with minro trimming from my measurements. I did have to cut some smaller pieces to fit in the weird shaped areas that I cut out that were rusted..This isn;t a show car so I didn't go with stamped floorboards nor did I have the money to do it, tight budget with kids you know.. some may frown on my choice of attack but oh well I really like the outcome a lot better than the rust crap that was in there...

    So i installed both front a rear boards, new leaf springs, fab up the wheel wells in the interior due to them being rusted and alos started the mounting of my new aluminum radiator and electric fan..Pretty good for one weekend I think...

    Here are some pix after that long a$$ story...LOL!!

    looks good man, If they didnt have stamped pans you would have Had to make your own anyway, You did a fine job, just grind and paint now, I used red oxide primer on my floor here is how it came out . It is fairly cheap(budget friendly), you can get it from homedepot even.Its nice and thick and will keep the rust away.here ya go.
