Replacement floorpans for 76?
« on: November 05, 2015, 08:06:46 PM »
Need to replace the RR footwell panel in my 76, anyone make a patch panel, or am I to break out the bead roller and forming hammers?

The Mustang II repop pans are supposed to be close but if you have a bead roller it would be fairly easy to make.

I use a mustang ii panel on my 76 drivers side , the panel does not come back that far to the rear, you may have to get a yard that has a wrecked pinto that the floor is good and have them cut it out for you , much easier than to pound one out,

Thanks for the 411.
MII, good call.
Do I assume correctly that I should use 18 gauge sheet?
