Our method here is straightforward, but time consuming. And while they’re "just floors" and would have taken less than half the time had we lap-welded, we use it as an exercise toward building our skills so when it’s time to do fender repairs or doorskins--where fit and finish really matter--we’ll have better results. At this point, our process isn’t bad, but we need to dial in our welding a bit. With a couple of these installs under our belt now, we’d hesitantly tackle a fender or hood; before the floors, we wouldn’t have considered exterior panels something within our abilities. And that’s why a floor job is the perfect beginner project. CT
