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.

Aftermarket pans were around $100 each and
