do you want to make your own, or just buy prefabbed?

best way to make your own is buy scribing a heavy paper template, which will allow you to make a pattern, but lay flat for cutting


Molsenice is one member on here who has done a ton of patch panels (as have many others), I recommend looking through his build thread....

Rusted floor pan replacement

Thanks yall....... I looked at the links but had trouble with the pictures and stuff. I just need some advise for putting the replacement pans back in after I cut the old ones out. I plan to order the replacement pans from Classic. Some folks say to butt joint the panels and weld them while others say to overlap the panels. Overlaping will be stronger but is it hard to get the welds smooth enough to conceal the weld joints? Thanks for all the help. Yall are awesome!!!!

I did a small overlap but you can see the joints. I just don't care. The primer and paint hide it some.
