It looks like I am going to have to take out the the seat cross brace and the channels under the pan. It would be nice to just plop an new one in, not an option. It looks like I will do some patch work. Going to order a spot weld drill.
cross brace is rusted just like the other side
same gaping hole on the end just like the drives side
another shot of the cross brace

Trying to think of how I am going patch the Swiss cheese
Pass side is kinda bad too
Looks like a lot of work.
One thing I noticed is this must be like 18g material its super thin and light. I will have to check and see how thick it is when I get to work.

Its not perfect but its stronger than the stock metal. Once I get it welded in it will be really good.
Before rust ate away at least 25 percent.
One thing I thought was interesting was I had a rust hole in the side of the drives kick panel I think its called.
You can see it in the top next to the door sill .
Could not have that so I cut the spot out fearing the worst of it full of rust on the inside.
So I will patch that up and call it good. I am starting on the drivers pan next.
That should be fun:brow:
Oh also ground and cleaned up the spot welds for prep. I still have to hit the whole thing with the hd wire wheel brush, but I am going to do that after I am ready to put the pan in.

The drivers pan is going slow for now at work. Yes that is RTV you see on the e-brake cable. I did not know it was there and nipped the housing a tinny bit, I am pretty good about checking stuff.

Does a pretty good job. I had another round one but that sucked so I kept using this one.
I was expecting more cancer when I pulled up some of the foam but it was just surface.
cleaned up pretty good. It will be a lot easier welding this stuff in.
The hump area was pretty bad got some holes down there trying to figure out if I want to patch or cut them out.
Some more of the other areas
Well that is all for now the good news is the drivers pan fit up at work is almost done. Maybe few more days during my break should finish up next week I hope.
