Default Trunk pan replacement

Getting ready to cut out trunk pan looking for bracing suggestions. The tail pan and brace is rotten as well. The pipe in pic is temp to keep from spreading.

a single piece across the area just above the tail pan is more than enough. I typically do not do anything. I usually replace the tail pan first and call it good.

That looks like a job... Good luck!

I tried to PM you and I got a message about insufficient priviledges… maybe cause I'M New?

I also tried to PM you about your 4 door parts you have for sale.
Can you PM me please?

Be sure to do your work with the frame as a jig as shown in the photos. Not on a rotisserie. If desired, you could tack everything securely and weld it out with the body off the frame.

Also, if you plan to mini-tub the wheel wells, you can buy a complete trunk pan that already has the tubs notched correctly and the spare tire well closed up. Saves a lot of work if you want to do that anyway.

I would also bolt the trunk lid in place and get it lined up where it belongs. That way you can check the fit with the tail pan as you go.
