Welding in the Floors

We’ve welded in both floor panels. After completely cutting out the left side and cleaning all the mounting areas, we fitted the new panel to the tub. We trimmed one side of the panel to appropriately fit the gearbox tunnel. Then we drilled a series of holes in the floor panel for rosette (plug) welds, which simulate the factory spot welds. Using our 110 Volt HTP 140 MIG welder, we welded the panel to the car.

After welding and grinding, we repeated the process on the other floor panel. As you can see, the panels are now in place and have a factory look.

Now we’re ready to tackle the trunk floor, which was also swiss-cheesed.

We again used our air chisel and grinders to quickly remove the floor for replacement.
