    <font color=purple> A while back when we were posting about replacing our rear floors, there was a comment that said if I bought wheel wells from LMC they would be bolt in ones ...... Is that right ? Would it also be bolt in wheel wells from GM or would they both be spot welded types ? I tore half of the rear floor out today and might replace the wheel wells to but not sure yet. They're in good shape except right where they connect to the floor, they got a bit twisted when I was taking them out......Any help would be appreciated as always !

    <font color=purple> Just to clarify, I know they bolt up on the top, I'm wondering how they connect to the floor itself ? Thanks !

    No they won't bolt in to the floor Kevin. But what I'm gonna do is bolt the wheel wells to the quarter like factory, and instead of spot welding it to the floor, I'm just gonna drill and bolt the whells to the floor. so the whole thing will bolt in so fitting and stuff will (hopefully) be not too bad, then just spot weld where needed if needed. Thats my plan, Hopefully it will work out and I'll have a totally bolt in floor which would be really cool. Hope this helps.
