Replacment floor panels??

I have been looking online for a couple of months for replacement floor pans, I have a couple big holes in the floor and want to fix them but I can't seem to find any where that sells them. Has anyone fixed/replaced the floors and where or what did you use? A link to a write up would be awesome but I haven't seen any.

I've always used sheet steel purchased at my local hardware store. I use a cutoff wheel in an angle grinder to trim away the rot. Then I shape the steel to whatever size and shape I need and weld it in. Multiple pieces of steel is fine as long as you're welding them in. On floorboards I generally don't bother grinding down the welds since there's a carpet going back over it. I use a mapp gas torch on steel before I paint it to get all the moisture out of it, of course only in areas that I can safely do so. I've had success using rustolium rusty metal primer and any color rustolium paint, with 3m undercoating on the underside.
It's a long time consuming process, but the results are worth it. And it's a whole lot cheaper than taking it to a body shop.

Well I know this may not be the the right way of doing it but, I ended up using seam sealer and pop rivets.

I'd say that looks pretty good. I can't weld, so I've done that type of repair the same way, but using JB weld and pop rivets. Make absolutely sure that the underside is well protected around the rivets and around the edges of the original floorpan. You don't want crevices where water and salt can get trapped.

I can weld but like I said all I have is a miller bobcat and it eats anything thinner than 1/8" so I didn't even try. I cut out all the bad, drilled all my holes, put a nice thick beed of the seam sealer down and started riveting. I think it turned out pretty good....
