I was planning on buying the full floorpan myself, but according to my mechanic friend who's helping me with the work, I don't have near enough damage to the actual floor to warrant a total swap. However, the support channels on the bottom are completely eaten away.
My friend is going to weld in replacement metal and fab the channels, but due to mine being completely eaten away, we're uncertain if the channels are completely flat(so he can make them out of box steel without issue), or if they have bends in them. In some pics they appear to have different heights along the channel, in others it appears that people have fabbed completely flat channels. Any info would be appreciated.

The inboard and outboard braces (support channels) are not flat, there are several bends. See here.
