    Has anyone used fiberglass to patch holes in the floorboard? Is this a bad idea? It seems like some minor holes in some non critical areas could be glassed and painted much easier that cutting out the whole floor and welding in a new one.

    I had a body guy tell me when I was trying to fix mine to use fiberglass. I twill never rust and will work in non critical areas. I would work under seats too if you braced it properly.

    I've used it on some minor holes with great results, I ground down the rusted metal, fiberglassed the hole, POR-15'd the good metal around the hole to prevent rust, and painted the fiberglass black to match. You can barely tell it is there, and two winters with no additional rust in those spots.
