that is interesting. What sucks is a full pan seems a ton easier. I am going to have to inspect the car better and see if this can work. thanks

a full pan would require the windshield to come out (I think) so you can get in inside the car. Two individual pans are much easier to maneuver... plus all the bracing (and stress) would make the job a lot more difficult....

If you look at these pics, there really only is an additional single weld down the middle to join the left and right hand pans....

I'm noticing that the rear area is not going to cover everything rusted on the car, the pan under the back seat is all shot also...

From looking at the pictures, the good mark is the exact gm copy so it would get up into the back seat like the stock pan. This car is weird, it has solid body mounts, rockers, passenger side quarter appears good, minor issues on the drivers quarter and solid t top for the most part. All of the big issues have to do with this floor pan. Honestly, it may be easier to cut the roof out and put it in a hard top car. I have a lead on another T car that may solve my issues. I am much more educated on floor pans after this thread though! we will see what happens, we got a bunch of snow today so I can not do anything with the car today
