Floor Pan, Toe Board, Lh, 17 Inch Length X 24 Inch Width, 20 Gauge, Us / Canadian Made Repro
The stamping of the floor pan section wasn't even close to the original. the front body mount is supposed to get spot welded to it once installed. I over layed the removed body mount to the pan and had gaps of 1 inch. I knew then I would need to cut it apart. I then cut the piece in half to replace what was damaged on my pan. I was forced to miter at the bend where the fire wall and floor meet at least an inch. To add insult to injury the flange that butts to the kick panel was bent upwards rather than down so it could be pinched between the firewall flange and the side cowl housing.. I welded a 16 gauge piece to this edge to make it work. Conclusion I used 8% of this panel and patched in the rest of what I needed to replace with my own fabrication. The depth of the stamped areas at the upper part that blends to the firewall was about 60% of the depth needed which explains why the body mount structure would not fit up.
