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.

Poor Man's Body Repair Part 1
Check out David's D.I.Y. Auto Repair Blog: http://www.diyautorepair.info
I have to do major body work on our 1990 Ford Econoline, I can't afford to have it done at a body shop.
Plus it would cost more than the van is worth, so being a jack-ass of all trades and a master of none, I have to do the job myself.
I have been doing body work for years on all the old cars I have owned in the past.
I use galv. sheet metal and pop rivets and rusty metal primer and Bondo.
This video is MY WAY, the poor man's way of fixing the body rot, it has to be done, the van runs good but the body is going to hell.
Soooo...If any of you that ARE in the body shop business and want to be a critic, please don't, I do not have a garage or the equipment or the MONEY to do it the RIGHT way.
To do it the right way would tie up the van for weeks, we drive the van almost every day.
This video is for you do-it-yourselfer's out there.
poor man's floor pan (1)
Part one of a floor pan fabrication for the 66 Chevy Caprice.
Aftermarket pans were around $100 each and
still didn't cover all the area I needed to replace.
I got the sheet metal for free from an industrial
shelving unit I found. It's the same gauge too!
Tools are from Harbor Freight or Homemade.
