Restoration.

Sirs,
I am wanting to know from people who have had the total unibody apart and what their thoughts might be on why they had done this. Not bondo experts!, Like real "solid" thoughts and ideas from proof and true experience...ie. pics!
Thank you.

Mainly Floorboard work and/or options of repair or replacement. Maybe also rocker panel work or replacement.

My rockers were in great shape and the pans wernt bad. I got 18 gauge sheet metal and made my own replacement pans with my dad. We cut out the rot and then cut right to the original seams of the pan. Welded right back in the original spots then used seam sealer top and bottom. Think it came out pretty nice

Here is my very SLOW PROGRESS:
Hope all this work will be worth it....I think it will!

Now, to the other side.
Then weld these babies in!!!

Then next step is fabricate the frame brace pieces to button it up (they will need seat bracket bolts in them). Floor should turn out "flatter" than stock, so should be cleaner looking.....I hope.!
Wish me luck!

P.S.
I hate RUST!!!, I hate how they put these trucks together, not like your typical chevy or ford, where you can get just about any part you need. Comanche owners are a breed of our own!!! Got to be proud!!!

Keep on keeping on brothers!!!!
