I am replacing the floor pans in my 69, among other sheet metal parts. I have done major mechanical work on hot rods all of my life but this is my first attempt at sheet metal work. Let me say that it is not easy, but well within the realm of the home hobbiest. It takes time, patience and a ton of research, most of which can be done right here. I think the key is to do it right the first time. Remember it is not the destination but the journey that is the reward. In closing I would also like to add that it took me about 4 hours to remove and clean up the previous fiberglass repairs to the floor pans.
