Our short wheel base with the floors issues has gotten something to put the seats on,
After hours of grinding and literally chiseling off chunks of plastic fillers and silly putty, we found ourselves with a dilemma...........I said Abandon ship !!! But our customer really loves this car.
Buying new floors is not the answer, the support areas where the new floor would attach are gone.
But somebody had already tried to attach some kind of floor, and some parts seemed to have a good hold. After testing some of those areas we had an idea, find the stronger points of the frame and build from there.
Normally we would put folds on the sheet metal panels for strength, but we are going from something different this time, we are going to use the existing panels, to sandwich the new panels by structurally weld them together
Then add reinforcement to the side of the tunnel and the new double floor panels, this is going to prevent straight panels from flexing, and keep our customer's legs inside the vehicle.
