They do, and it gets rid of chopping the floor out. If you do it that way the biggest factor is getting the point that welds to the rocker and flat as you can. Or you end up with a gap because of the tubing.

Technically speaking I NEED injectors (a few of mine are cracked).

And I needed to fix the body parts that were rusting

How much are injectors? HP30s are dirt cheap.

You could probably get an HP for 150.

Not trying to say DO THIS NOW, lol. Just suggesting since you plan on it eventually.
