No kidding... will sure be solid no matter what. It is threads like this that reinforce my desire to learn to weld.

I think I will find a beginners course locally next year.

hit up the local scrap/ wrecking yard for some stock. Evilbay or craigslist for a good stick welder and a oxy-acettline cuttin torch. all you will ever need. All I use at work. oh and you can never have enough harbor freight 41/2 in grinders.

get a mig, stick welders are a thing of the past. I have a nice 220 lincoln stick welder, had to buy the mig for putting a roll cage in the drag car, per rules.

the mig is so much cleaner , free from slag ect.

for all intents and purposes, the passy floor is all welded in in the front.
behind the front seat mount is all welded in on both sides in exception to a tiny like 2''x4'' plate by the seat belt buckle bolt on the passy side, and like finish beading along the back.









driverside floor needs one plate in the corner, i just didnt get to it, i like to bounce around so i dont get burnt out.





did a little work on the back floors too


annndddd my holy grail. screw folding the rear corners, and dealing with pop rivets, sealer, and other amatuer methods. do it right, do it once.. profit.



the outside plate is 3/16th's tied into the other 3/16th that goes past shackle to shackle on the rear, also tied into a plate on the outside and the 14guage floor. its straonger than it ever would have been.

nay sayers can fold 2 pieces of 24 gauge all they want, but i can destroy a stock floor with a rubber mallet.

nice that people are still following, ive seen alot of decreased traffic in this thread due to the new search function.

its getting there, alot of big herdles have been crossed. if it wasnt raining id have most of it done today.

I went to tractor supply, bought recievers so i can build bumpers today, well get started on them without getting too wet.
