That's a good looking floor pan you have there. Could you please tell us where you got it from?

I purchased it from EBay. Here's a link http://m.ebay.com/itm/251199917124?cmd= VIDESC
Or just search for 1950 chevy floor pan

Thank you for the link. I had heard of Golden Star, but I had never seen one before.

Hey rusty, read your message but accidentally deleted it. Get a hold of me again please. And to answer some of your questions, I too am doing the work by myself. The floor pan I feel is the best fix for this car. The pan comes with the supports and mine are not all good. Money for all four pans and 6 of the supports would far exceed what I paid for this. Granted the logistics of removing the body from frame as well as welding in the supports and pan will take some effort. First I need to weld in some bracing horizontally and vertically inside to maintain its shape while removing and replacing the floor.

Just a few replacement panels done around the rocker panels. Was busy selling and buying a house the last 6 months. Almost ready to start back into her again.

Today is door day. Time to dismantle and clean up these two. I have all the glass and window trim. Might need the door release and window actuator if I find they are too rusted and unreliable.

I am anxious to see the pics of the floor pan install. I will be looking to you for advice next year.

Hi Backyard, good to see you getting back into it. Nice job of bracing the shell. I guess you just have to be patient and a bit creative when working on your own.
