    gm sells the rear floor/ tail pan complete. Thats what I did when I replaced my floor, I went to a dealer, got the part number then went to http://community.webshots.com/album/22742026nbhEtBOZnc So if you can't find a good used floor, hopefully you can go this route. Hope I helped.

    Yea, if you go new, you are looking at about 800 or so bucks for everything to your door from that site. You will want to get the wheel wells to save yourself time and agrivation like I did. If you end up getting something and need tips PM me, RIZ, BOSS, Yunit, Blazerboy, and others because we've all done it before. Good luck man.

    The wheel wells are orig. welded to the floor. They also like to rot at that seam. So after you drill out the spot welds and clean off the rust, you probally won't have much of a lip to put to your new floor. I just bought new wheel wells and bolted instead of welding them to my floor. If you look at the pictures you'll see the new wheel wells and how I bolted them up.

    Well, I did it as a 17 year old kid on a pretty tight budget too. It's possible to do if you save up and do all the work yourself /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
