Thank you Sir! I should have also mentioned, due to the thin condition of the rear floor boards, I opted to overlap the edge instead of underlap it. This will be stronger and I can always replace the rear boards later. I had several experts look at the floors and they all felt that they were thin, but had plenty of life left in them.

I'm just saving money where I can for now since I am fixing up two of these cars at one time.

Sorry I've been too busy to post. Not much to show in the way of progress. I've had several 72 hour work weeks in a row and I've been either too tired or too sick to work on the car. I did get my passenger toe board from EMS this week. I hope to install it this Sunday. After that, all I have left to do are the middle and rear floor braces on the driver side. I honestly don't think I can fit the middle one in without having the body off the frame or cutting a hole in the older floor. The rear ones can carefully be snaked into place but I don't think so on the middle ones. Any advice? I hadn't planned on cutting out the rear floor. It's still solid.

Ok, so there is one more update from this weekend I forgot to mention. I did do just a little "body" work. This artwork was on my 1950 Styleline from 1986 to 1989 before we repainted the whole car. It will RETURN very soon, but for now, and forever, I am wearing it!

Toe board tacked in! Old rust cut out, backs of firewall braces wire wheeled and rattle canned until the frame off, edges cleaned and weld through primered, along with the underneath side. Then tacked in and rattle canned for now.

Thank you! If I do anything right, it's because I learned it here or followed the manual. I hope you're doing well! Good to hear from you!

Thanks EMS! Love your sheet metal! I figured out a trick to install a middle floor brace end today, when you're not replacing the rear floor and without pulling the body off the frame. Here's a sneak peak...

Sorry, I got too busy for updates again. I finished up that brace and butt welded in a patch made from some old 18 gauge I got from a friend. Be sure to rescue those inside brace reinforcements from your old ones! Here are pics...

No it's from EMS. By better things, I mean being done with the difficult sheet metal replacement and onto some small easy patching.

Thanks for asking and for following! I think I'm going to make it. I'm about a month behind where I wanted to be, but the plan has been simplified. By July 21st I need to:

1. Finish a floor patch over the rear driver side floor brace...I did a little tonight...pics below...
2. Button up the rear driver side inner rocker panel to wheel well...I make that from scratch!
3. Patch the rear quarter panels (very small holes!--not full replacement)
4. Patch rear tail pan (also small, not full replacement)
5. Buy new tires! Por-15 the interior.
6. Install wiring harness, dash, and new 12 volt lights
7. Reinstall bumpers, engine splash guard, muffler
8. Make carpet from store remnants
9. Install seats covered with southwest blankets
10. Install front and rear windshields, no side glass for now.
11. Shoot it with primer so it looks ok from 50 feet.

After July 21st, the plan is to buy a rotisserie, add a car port or addition to our garage, and do a full frame off. I am also looking at buying a parts car this weekend which may have a better frame under it. My current frame needs a few spots cut out or replaced eventually. The parts car is a '49 4 door Styleline for $850 in the next town over. The guy has sent me pics of the frame rails and they seem to have less rot than mine. I would then part out the rest. Wish me luck!
