The 69 has what I think are fatigue cracks on both rear foot wells just ahead and parallel to the rear torque boxes. I am going to take the car in to a Mustang body and frame specialist (Marlo's in Chatsworth, CA) for an inspection and plan a course of action but of course you guys get first shot! Are there alternatives to replacing the floor pans? Are repro floor pans as good as original? There is a 70 coupe in a nearby junkyard, would harvesting those floor pans be a good idea? Is there any alternative like gusseting and welding the area of the cracks that is not too, well, bush-league? Thanks for any and all advice!

I have a 70 coupe shell with rust free floors. If your interested let me know. I don't know how close to Reno you are but lets just say I have to get rid of this Shell sooner rather than Later!

I couldn't find a set of floor pans for my '70, when I replaced mine. All the aftermarket pans are for '65-'66's. The ribs run the wrong way. This didn't matter to much to me, with the fastback, but, if I had a Boss car, It would.
I would grab the original ones from the coupe. Even if you don't use them now, you would have them for future use.
But, this is just my way of thinking...
