I haven't done a full floor yet, but am thinking about it. I plan on welding the doors to the body, with proper gaps, with flat iron bars, on the inside, front and back, so they could be cut loose without the welds showing. Cross brace the B pillar on a hardtop. Lift the body off the frame, cut the old floor out. Then mount the new floor to the frame with new mounts and no shims. Then set the body on full floor and weld. Add outer rockers if needed.
That way you don't worry about door gaps and the new outer rockers can be aligned to the doors.
