    <font color=purple> I can't remember who posted this but I need info on rear floor panels from GM ........... How exactly does this go in ? Is it all bolt in or is there welding involved ? If anybody has detailed information on this I'd appreciate any and all you can give me .......... I'm going to a graduation party this afternoon and will check for replies and explain more of my situation later on this evening. Please help any way you can. Thanx !

    I know that the fron edge is bolted, and I think the rest is spot welded on the edges. I'm going to do my whole floor this summer when I get out of school(1.5 more weeks!!!!!!) so if you start before me, maybe we can chat and share ideas. I'm gonna learn to mig and get a mig soon, so I'll be in business. Hope this helps and I'm sure we'll keep in touch for tips and stuff.

    If you are lucky to find a replacement floor from GM the install is real easy. I bought my truck with a GM replacement floor and a set of wheel wells. If you get replacement wheel wells from like LMC you can actually bolt the wells to the floor and the rear quarters. The wells are currently welded in and will have to be drilled out. There are four spot welds in the rear under the corners of the tailgate where the cross member meets the pillars. The bolts run across the front, around the top of the wheel well, along the sides of the rear floor, and there are also bolts at the ends of the cross member that are bolted in from inside the cross member. I left my roof on when I did it and just braced it, i did not want to risk messing up my rear quarters from them not having any support.

    I was going to sell my rear floor, but I just bought a new K5 project and it has more cancer then I thought it did so I am going to use the floor in my new truck.

    Pics??? I like the sound of bolting everything with the new wheel wells. But then I'd probally want to do quarters so I won't have to worry about them for a while. Rust= never ending battle. All well. But if ya got pics yunit I'd like some. Thanks and Riz, Keep in touch, two heads are better than one!

    When I replace the floor in my 87' I will do a step by step on how to do so. I will not do this for another month or so.
