    Some usual holes I gues Im new to these trucks. The floor under the passenger seat is cracked and in the back the corner of the footwell is rotted. Im probably not describing it right but I can get pictures.

    hehe, I got a shop to quote me $700 to replace my floors and replace my rockers. MAN were they pissed! /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    (They kind of got back at me by cutting right through my subframe and not reparing it, then leaving beer cans all over the inside of my truck. /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif

    It cost me $650 to get my floors done in my '90 and they did a piss poor job. I'm going to be swapping a less rotted tub onto my '89 now and patch the rotted tailpan and floor myself. I'm thinking of going diamond plate for the floors if it's in my price range.
