Part 18: Floor, Frame, Firewall - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration
It's time finally for part 18 of my Mazda RX-5 Cosmo restoration. In
episode 19 I continue repairing the rear floor pan, this time dealing with
the drivers rear seat area as well as some of the bulkhead and frame below
it. Once tired of messing about with floor pans, I move onto some easy
sheet metal work involving filling some of the unnecessary holes in the
firewall. Included in this episode: cutting out rusty sheet metal, cleaning
up rust, prepping the areas for repair, fabricating patch panels, hand
forming patch panels, welding in new metal patch panels, smoothing a
firewall, fixing sheet metal weld distortion, a tornado.
Episode 70 Part 2 Seamless floor pan installation, 1965--70 Mustang, Autorestomod
We finish the installation of the National Parts Depot Mustang floor pan in our weekend
project 1968 Mustang
hardtop! In this episode we only replace the sections needed. Gary Jackson
shows how to cut, weld, and grind a pan for a seamless repair that will
give a factory look without using the full pan. This method will also be
easier due to less welding and grinding.

Creating Custom Metal Floors [S2 Ep. 7-1]
Today, Stacey pulls out the tools and starts working metal as he dives into
the subject of what to do when your floors are gone... I mean literally
gone... nothing there! It's not as big a problem as you may think as Stacey
rolls in the "Rat Roaster" and shows you how to create solid metal floors
from nothing. This show is loaded with tools and tech that will help you
build anything from a small patch panel to a complete floor. While he?s at
it, Stacey also covers seat selection and placement so you have a place to
plant YOUR seat when you get ready to roll down the street!

The paint is a pearl blue flame by ford, its a 360ci amc motor bored approx
0.30 over, the rims are cragar 5 spokes. If you have any questions just
ask. It used to run at union grove back in the day.
I will continue to add new videos as they are available.
Note* i do not claim ownership of this music
side note: no the car is all metal now theres less than a quart of bondo
used on the whole car, i didnt get pics of fabrication due to a broken
camera. It doesnt show us fabricating a trunk, the front fenders , the
troughs, the rear quarter panels were a 3 piece, the floor pans, or random
holes weve patched. to give you an idea of the work theres more than 1000
hours in body work alone.
