My Ugly Floorpan.

Recommended Posts

I sandblasted the whole thing. Then coated it all with Epoxy. There were only 5 spots and they were very minor.

 

Both Lower Quarters on the back

I will replace the metal here

 

Floor pan under pedals. (About 2" x 2")

Sandblasted and treated with SEM. Filled 3 tiny pin holes with JB Weld

 

Bottom front of the doors.

Sandblasted and will replace the metal

 

Top of gas tank.

Someone had a piece of carpet on it and it was rusted to the tank. Sandblasted and SEM on this also.

 

Small Hole about the size of a pencil in the rear window.

Removed metal and welded a washer in its place. Then filled the center of the washer with a weld.

 

The Doors an quarters will be done after the mock up and test drive period. I haven't decided on replacing both rear quarters or using lower quarter patches.

Engine compartment getting there...

 

I replaced the inner fenders and radiator support.

 

Converted the clutch over to hydraulic.

 

Got all of the brake lines routed (Mocked up)

 

Ready for final primer then final blocking on the engine compartment today after I finish building the re-enforcement plate for the Clutch and Brakes.

 

Here are a few pics I will post more today or tomorrow.

Did not get quite as far as I wanted to this weekend.

 

With the exception of a few minor fixes on the engine compartment body work and cutting the steering column hole. Paint is in the near future. By next weekend I hope.

I like the color too. But with all of that effort I would have welded the shock tower wings prior to sealing and painting.

 

Are you referring to the holes for the shelby drop? I left the uppers there just in case I need to use them. Whatever ones that I don't use are getting rubber plugs.
