fairly new Nacho65SS

Hi I am fairly new to the site, I have received alot of valuable info here, Big thanks to Big Dave, a gold mine...I bought a 65 Impala SS project car,
the good:2 owners, matching number, straight as an arrow, all original, body panels all good, all glass is good
the bad: sat outside for 4 years, rear floor and trunk gone, seem leaks, one seat track rusted, missing fan shroud

overall no show stoppers, car fired up when I bought it, been 5 months, I have put a primer on it, redid whole front end suspension, redid dash, bought new tires, steel wheel and OG hubcaps(spinners), fixed brakes, and recently did Valve train and lifters, rebuilt the starter...

thanks for reading this..see pic of car...

Unless your name is Fred Flinstone it is time to think about replacing your floor pans. It is an integral part of the strength of the car.

Nacho, you ever do this on the side or have the capacity/desire to? I'm looking for someone to help me 'tighten up the bootstraps' a little on my '64 ss and i might be close to you (I'm at pico and la brea). Want to learn it as I go with some help. Looking to do front end and brakes and see where to go from there. PM me if interested. Peace.
