Local welding/repair shop?

Trying to find something in the mid-Indiana area that would be good for welding in a replacement floor pan on my Wrangler. Need a new floor pan so I can get new seat brackets so I can get new seats. It's kind of problematic.

Know anyone that does good work for decent money or any shops? I'm swinging and missing on finding anyone really.

I'd recommend Scott at Sunfire Off-road in Sunman. He's about an hour from you along I-74. (812) 623-3473

I have a friend that does repairs. I'll ask her if she welds too. She is very good with engine work.

Cool I'll see what he'd charge, thanks!

If she can weld in new floor pans in with no issues in terms of safety, let me know. Been holding off on getting this work done forever now.

Thanks!

Remember the fuel lines are under the drivers side floor.
Ask what type of welding method they are going to use wether it's lap welded or butt welded. Lap is easy and you can see the overlapping after, then there is butt welding that is invisible after you are done grinding and flapping the welds. Just something to think about.
