Good evening, I have cut out the old floor on the passenger side, sills and inner wing. I have just received a new floor panel with inner and outer sills spot welded on. So these are my questions I need help with and I’ll number them to make it easier
1 I’m leaving a lip of the old floor tunnel side for the new floor to sit on and weld to, is this the best way to do it?
2 what’s the best welding technique? I was thinking tunnel edge seam weld, inner sill to step with plug weld same with floor to toe and heal board? I don’t have a spot welder.
3 paint, the floor comes completely unpainted, I have no way of rotating the car so I was going to get a few coats on the underside it before fitting. What is best to use, I was thinking red oxide all including inside the Sill box. Then coat with just a black paint then clear lacquer. Then seam sealer and under seal once all fitted. I know that I have to weld once it’s been painted but this can be touched up easier than trying to spray a panel from underneath.
thanks for reading and your help
