Has anyone got any photo's or videos on replacing a one piece floor pan in a 57 4 door, as a basic idea on best way of doing it, help needed and much appreciated.

Have not seen a video but it isn't that hard to do. I usually cut out the bottom of the original (leaving the vertical sheetmetal and cutting inside any lips), drill brace spot welds. Then I will drill the spot welds at the lips (inner rocker and toeboards). Then use a air chisel or a screw driver and pop the drilled spot welds. Grind the spot welds down, lay the new floor pan down, attach with self tapping screws, mark the vertical sheetmetal cut and make sure the lips/flanges all meet and the wholes line up, remove the pan cut below the marked line, drill the flanges and where the brace makes contact for spot welding, clean any edges that will be butt welded, reinstall pan and weld in. Alot of words but usually only takes an hour or so to do.
