    Finally after years of putting it off I have finished the last patch that completes my floor pan repairs.

    I had the usual rot where the heater core pissed, some driver side rot around the brake and gas pedals and both rear corners where I believe the rear windshield leaked.

    I have dug out all of the old seam sealer and applied new stuff.

    My last patch was a small spot on the drivers side rear.

    When I first got the car around 10 years ago and pulled up the carpet I never thought I would ever see this day. I had no idea how to go about these repairs but this site has been great as far as information and motivation goes.

    I bought a welder, took a welding class at the local community college and just did it.

    Now that I am retired and have more time I am making great progress.

    Sooner or later it will be done.

    Patch fits good enough no one is ever going to see it

    Patch welded it was a tough place to weld back in the corner, once it warms up a bit I will paint the top, apply seam sealer, and call it good
