I have the passenger side floor pan cut out so I can weld in my new pan.
I was wondering if I could install my TCP kit 1 subframe connectors from through the floor while the pans are out (One side at a time). I don't have a lift so this seems easier. Everything looks accessible. What do you think?

You can probably tack it in from up above, but you'll likely still have to finish weld it from underneath. In that case, it's probably just as easy to do it all from undewrneath, but it's your call.

In your situation I would have welded in the connectors before cutting out the old floor pan... would have kept everything in align better. But it's too late for that I guess. Weld 'em in whenever it's easier for you but you should keep the car at ride weight to ensure everything in the suspension is weighted etc. I did this in my garage with some very tall jackstands under the rear end and the front wheels up on ramps ... from the pic you already have the ramps so... Just be very careful and make sure the car is solid before crawling under there and going to work.

I put the 1-2 kit under our '65 coup. I like to trial fit everything.
I put the 1-2 kit together on the floor outside of the car. It was
not easy to do, the holes did not line up and I had to use the
BFprybar to get it to go together. I decided that if it is this hard
to get together outside of the car, it will be harder inside/under
the car. I put the 1-2 kit in as one piece. I bolted it together and
put it under the car and used the old floor jack to put it into
place. If you put the #1 kit in and don't use the #2 kit as a guide,
you may put in one side farther forward/rearward than the other.
My $.02 worth. Good Luck!
