    I know it's been awhile, but I picked up a second job for some extra money for Z, but I've been working so much I haven't had much time to really work on her. (I'm sure a lot of you know how that works).
    So the progress I have to share right now is that I got the carpet out and a much better look at the floor pans.

    This is the driver side front:


    Back seats:



    The passenger side is actually worse than I had originally thought and it looks like at some point someone tried to weld/fix it:

    Welcome to the site. Mine was in similar condition. Rot hidden by new panels. It can be done!

    IMO, you're going to want a full floor pan to fix that. Some guys go the patch route, but a new full pan actually winds up easier if you do it right. Depending on how bad it is, you could need inner rockers too. Don't worry. You're not alone. A lot of us have been there. It's repairable.
