    Starting next week, I am gonna get some 22 guage sheet metal ad starting patching up my truck. It is in desperate need of my intention as their are way too many huge rot and rust holes for my liking. If anyone is in the Easton, Massachusetts area, and wants to give me some help with my project, please contact me at jashem@aol.com or you can call me at 508-238-0156

    C'mon now, those are just "weight reduction" holes! That's the way I used to look at it anyway. The seats were getting a little sloppy though...

    Good luck with your project.

    Just a suggestion, but I'd go for 20 or 18 , maybe even 16 gauge metal for anything but small repairs. 22 gauge is a little thin if it's going to see any abuse.

    I have been replacing the floorboards, rocker panels, and cab supports on mine and liked the parts I bought from LMC Truck. They are on the web and have free catalogs. You might like the prefab parts over using sheet metal, even on a simple repair job. Good luck!!

    Does LMC make full floors? All I see in the catalog are the foot wells.

    I need to do full floors on either side of the console, from front edge of the doors to the rear seat.

    Just finished the tail pan and happen to be gearing up for the floors on my 89, and I'm in Stoughton. I'll give you a call.

    Just looking through LMC and don't see full floorpans, but I know you can get all the adjoining pieces from jcwhitney.com.

    Check them out if you haven't, a lot of their parts are pretty inexpensive.
