A couple people might know me on here?? but i thought i'd throw out some pics of my 68 coupe, i bought it in 1999 it was baby blue barn paint 289,C4 auto 8'' 2.79 and enough rust to choke sasquatch. I put new quarter panels on it in 2000 and had it painted for a parade HOK candy apple cobalt blue i knew there would have to be major surgery in the future that day came when i hit a deer going pretty fast :crybaby: so join me on this Wisconsin Death Trip, if you buy an old car from the midwest be prepared!!:box:

Yikes... it looks like you took a picture of my floor before I started on it. Hopefully your frame rail isn't as bad as it looks.

I had half of one of those big garbage cans full of rust dust and pieces I could rip off by hand. Once I started hitting things and cutting pieces out the joke behind it lost it's flavor. You are moving fast, and everything looks great so far.

I should have done a 1 piece floor pan but i was scared of shipping:skullnbones: the quality of the front frame rails,torque boxes,seat pans was AMAZING! Spectra=USA, anyways i took the great seat bases and dropped them 1/2'' and set them back 1/2''
