    Time to break out the welder! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Cut out the rusted section of the floor and then weld in some new sheet metal. Oh yeah, be sure to remove the carpet and padding first, so ya don't set your truck on fire. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I recently had the same problem, so I picked up some sheetmetal and Im getting ready to weld it right over the old stuff, make sure you grind all the rust off.

    I would charge 25 to 50 bucks depending on how bad the rust was....
    california is a long way in the full recline position however
