gladiator floor pan repair

has anyone used aluminum and pop rivets for a fix? part of what i cleaned out forward of the passenger seat was AL. biggest issue is the seat mounting. i don't weld and can't afford hiring a body with eqpt. to do steel. i call it "dark rainy night in the jungle wrenching"??? a small portion of the tunnel is is gone on the passenger side. {drivers side is a street sign}

i'd use sheet metal screws rather than pip rivets, sheet metal screws dont have a chance of getting loose and vibrating around like pio rivets

I'm in the same boat with my 89. I'm noticing portions of the floor that are falling off under the carpet. I knew I would have to address it sooner or later.

Did you remove your carpet and then install your 'street sign aluminium' ?

Welder's really aren't that expensive. If money's that tight, could you borrow one from somebody? Might as well do it right. I had pretty much no body work or sheet metal experience and was able to replace a bunch of the floors in mine.

The Gladiators are heavy duty, get your self some 16 gauge, a hammer, and go to town. Easy to weld on stuff that's that thick.
