Overall shot of the car. Hope I haven't bored you much with all the photos. Its nice to see some nice clean sharp new metal edges and not the rusty edge panels peppered with holes.

Thanks for reading.
Dave.

Hi all.
Just after a bit of advice on quarter panel floor fitment. The front quarter floor edge has a joggle on the sill side edge to allow the floor to be simply dropped in against the inner sill step and on top of the chassis leg. The rear quarter floor then is shaped to the transmission tunnel shape with then a high back to weld to the heel board. However there is no joggle on the rear quarter floor sill edge. When the floor is dropped in on the rear it fits nicely but how much overlap have people left of the original floor? Mine was very badly rotten so I literally just have the inner sill floor flange. There just seems a large step underneath from underneath from the inner sill edge to the new floor panel. Do people on here seam weld the floor from inside the car and underneath and use of a seam sealer? Originally the floors would have been sandwiched between the inner sill and under sill front to rear but originally also the floor had the undersills attached to them. Just wondering what peoples experiences are for these drop inside floor replacements? The sensible thing would of to put a joggle on the rear floor edge like the front quarter floor has.
Many thanks
Dave

I suppose what I'm trying to say is that it's going to be impossible to get a flush floor fit with the original floor edge. unless I cut the new floor quarter to get a butt joint fit. But that means joggling the heel board high back corner edge too. The heel board high back drops straight onto the original heel board flange. So I guess I'm going to have to live with a step from the floor edge I've cut out to the new floor panel.
