    Where is the best place to get a whole new floor to replace my wholy one? Should I look for a "tub" or a whole body, or maybe order the panels from Whitney( heard it takes for ever). Any other suggestions?

    Depends on how "wholy" it is. The Whitney ones will work. You can lay them down ontop of what you have and take weld them in, or you can cut out the old. The problem with laying the new ontop of the old is the old rusty stuff will eventually contaminate the new. So you would need to put down a "THICK" barrier of sealer to slow this down. The whitney ones will fit, but they will not be perfect. You have to bend them and tweek them a bit.
    Hope this helps. You can also order floors from LMC.

    Thanks ftn96 The LMC was something I was not aware of. I'll check it out. I am planning on replacing the old floor with new instead of just covering it up. It's gonna be a big job, lots of fun .

    You can get an original Rear floor pan complete with all the crossmembers from GM. It covers the whole rear floor and runs about $400.00

    Depending on just how bad your floorboard is, you may look at por15.com and buy the paint, patch, and reinforcing stuff they sell. I have personally used the patch and POR and it is great. For $100 you could have problem solved, permanently.

    I am replacing my floor boards, cab supports, and rocker panels on mine right now. I have been real happy with the stuff from LMC, especially the rockers. The floor pan repair sections aren't in yet, but they seem to have a small fit problem by the kick panel. There is a little gap (about 1/2 inch or so) between the panel and the kick panel. I am hoping this will fix the major door and windshield sag I had, but it looks I will sitll have to put in about 3/8 inch of shims between mount bushing and cab support. I was hoping that the new parts would eliminate it all but not so. Anyone have experience in this area?? Hope that helps a bit on your question.
