I did some searching and couldn't find much information on how to replace a floor pan on a 67 impala 4dr hard top. I found the car and would like to buy it. The only rust it has is on the passenger side floor pan. It's rusted all the way through. Can you guys direct me to a previous post about how to fix that?
Have you ever watched those automotive TV reality car shows that illustrate car repair and restoration. I watch PowerNationTV (formerly PowerBlockTV on Spike TV up until the owners of the show had a problem with Spike TV management over money) on Sunday mornings on Spike. They have four shows, 4x4 teaches you how to weld and how to make a cage or work on racing suspension if you are motivated to run in that direction. Horsepower TV shows how to properly build a motor (cleanliness is next to Godliness). Trucks shows you how to restore a vehicle (they show you how to do body work on pick-up trucks, but everything they do applies to cars). Finally Muscle car shows how to fix and upgrade an old car to get it to behave like a new one while retaining the looks and image of the old muscle car.
If you look at their project Red Sled you will see the complete restoration of a 1961 Chevy Impala upgraded to a 409 425 horse power plant.
Hey thanks guys! Those are great tips and good information. I'll check out those videos and do some more searching.
What I'm sensing is that there's no way to replace the floor pan or fix that rust problem without some major restoration project. I would have to remove the seats, carpet, and then do some intense cutting, sanding, and welding. Am I correct?
