I would get a complete floor with inner and outer sills and heel board.

I would repair the brown one. The floor on the green one doesn't look that good. That way the door openings are already in shape.

 

You need full floor and boot floor. And wings, front panel and A panels. That would be a start

I'd second this.
Just done floor halves in my estate and wished I'd done complete floor.
Would if made it so much easier.

I would need to see more of the brown car to make the call. The green car is not going back together squarely. If you do go for the brown car be sure to brace everything before you drop that floor out.

Good to see a young hobbyist out there. Keep us posted on your progress.

I'd agree with the majority and put new floors in the brown one. Maybe use the green one for the reference/hard to get panels.

 

An alternative to Minispares is M-machine for full floor assemblies: http://preview.m-machine.co.uk
