Default Floor Replacement

Looking for advice in replacing my floor in my 57' Sedan Delivery. I will probably get the floor from East Coast Chevy, do not know if I should get the split 2 piece or the one piece. Any videos on this task that are available?

The car is painted and I am driving it. This floor will be installed without taking the body off.

You can not do a one piece floor with out taking the body off the frame.

So you need to do split 2 piece.

Ok, that is what I thought. Rough estimate on how many hours it will take?

I was looking at the same problem and I chose to replaced the floor pan in my Nomad in one piece. This has to be the way to go for the fit and finish you end up with. If you are not worried about how the bottom of the car looks then you don't have to worry about it. If the only thing stopping you from doing a one piece is the picking up of the body, then I would put the effort in picking it up and not working around the inside of the car. You will be happier with the end result.

Good Luck,
Thomas

Can you put one piece floor in that way? Don't think so, but

Default NEW FLOOR

HEY DELIVERY - I HAVE THE SAME CAR. THE ONLY WAY TO GO IS TO HAVE CAR COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED, HAVE 4 FRIENDS COME OVER TO LIFT THE BODY FOR A MINUTE AND "SLIDE" ONE OF THOSE "COMPLETE" FLOOR PANS WITH ALL BRACES, etc. YEAH, I KNOW THEY'RE MADE IN CAMBODIA OR SOME THING BUT EVERYTHING FITS AND IS IN THE RIGHT PLACE - YOU CAN'T BEAT IT FOR $800 BUCKS PLUS SHIPPING! YOU SHOULD REPLACE ALL YOUR BUSHINGS WHILE IT'S UP IN THE AIR. REALLY IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO GO. GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND
