As I have talked about before, the floor pans had some pretty bad spots in them. I was really surprised, when I started tearing into the car, since everything else was in very good condition. Obviously there had been a water leak. Anyway, I thought about patching the spots, but decided to purchase full left and right pans from Sherman & Associates Inc.

"before" shots of the floorpan:

I got lazy and took it to a local body shop to have the work done. "After" shots with the new pans, installed:

The guys at the body shop really bragged on the quality of the Sherman & Associates Inc. floor pans. I would highly recommend them to everyone! I think it turned out really nice.

Next we're going to install mounts for the aftermarket bucket seats. This should be completed this week and I can then concentrate on completing the interior.

But I think it'll look taky. Got any pics of the front mount. Underneath. Not sure how much to cut off.

Looks great! I've always touted Sherman & Assoc., when I was working at the salvage yards those are about the only guys I saw delivering sheetmetal... probably didn't hurt that their HQ was only about an hour's drive from me. Way I understand is they use original GM tooling where they can.

They are $229 each side.
Yes, I'd like to use something like Dynamat.

Make them a sponsor so that they are easier to find. The place that makes replacement frame rails was preety cool to see up there.

They put the seat belt nut underneath (in stock location), held in place by using the bolt and some washers and welded it back in place.

I don't have any pictures of the underside right now. I will get some in the next few days. I didn't even have a chance to look at the underside very well.

Actually, they are! I have a link on the home page, but didn't have a chance to put it in the forums. I will get that up ASAP and make an announcement.

Thanks,
