    Rusted Floor Panels on a \'78

    What can i do for this? Buy new panels form Jcwhtiney and then like rivet them in or weld? Do i cut the whole floor panel out or just
    lay the new stuff on top?

    Thanks

    You should get new panels cut the old floor out and weld the new one to solid metal. Make sure you remove all the rusted metal or it will continue spreading. This time use Herculiner or any of those tough protectors so the next time it rusts it's your grandchildren who will do the job.

    It's a tough job, but I think any improvement is worth it if it's for your Blazer.
