    The only thing I wonder about using the three pieces are there are no bracing hold all three together. The three pieces are generally sheet metal patch panels. They my not have the ribs or reinforced mounting areas for the body mounts. Did you get the three floors pieces (front, left rear, right rear) and the tailpan?

    You may have to fit them tack weld, pull them out and lay in some bracing on the bottom.

    yeah i just have the sheetmetal stuff i gotta lay it all out, the floor supports from the old floor are still good, but there was rusty spots everywhere on the edge so we decided to take it all out. i will prob cut the old ones off the floor and re weld them onto the new ones.
