Need new floors

I finally got around to pulling the seats and carpet in my 68 Ranchero. There is rust in the toe boards and the area behind the seat (driver's side). I knew there was rust, and was expecting more rust.

So, who has replaced floors on their Torino/Fairlane/Ranchero? Where did you get you replacement panels?

Also, from what I can tell, the toe board is the same on the Torino/Fairlane/Ranchero/Comet. What about the other area? (What is the other area called?)

Thanks in advance!

Re: Need new floors

I ordered some floors from eBay (classicparts4u was the seller). He has a lot is good reviews. Some of the neutral and negative reviews stated the panels fit poorly and required a lot of work to get them to fit right.

I'm not going to replace the entire panels (rt toe board, rt front floor, left rear floor). I plan on only using the sections that I need.

Im planning on using this method to cut, fit, and install the new floors.

Re: Need new floors

From looking at your pics your floors don't look that bad, some guys would kill for those. Stick to your plan and just replace what is bad.

Re: Need new floors

Those are good looking floors. A wire brush and POR 15 will fix 85% of your issues.

You're 100% correct. Im just not skilled enough to make my own patch panels. Where the right toe board meets the right front floor is the worst. Also, after I cleaned the area up with a wire brush a lot of pin holes were revealed.

Panels arrived today. Hopefully I will be able to get started tomorrow! I plan on using Chassis Saver when I'm finished.
