Is there a how to or something, or can someone tell me how I can replace both floor pans on my 68 coupe. I need to remove that box that the seat sits on, then replace the pans. how do I cut, weld, etc. What is the process of removal. Thanks.

Welcome to M&M !

If you leave the floors alone and the car breaks down, you would still be able to Flintstone your way home.

This shows what is involved to replace the floor pans. It is being completed on a convertible, but tha same procedure is used on a coupe.

Depending how badly things are rusted,you can buy a special tool for drilling out spot welds.If its just the sheet metal of the floorboards and your frame rails and crossmember are all solid you can drill out the spotwelds and I used a small cutoff wheel on an angle grinder and cut out the floor pans without damaging the frame rails and stuff underneath.When you put in the new floor pans if you are going for an orignal look you can drill holes where the spot welds were and weld the hole full with a mig welder so it looks like original spot welds.

i am having the floorpans replaced on my car (read below for details) and we got an estimate for how much it would cost to have new floorpans put in. its going to be about $2000 for us. expect to see something around that price range.
