Today's the day for new floors

Postby greg pettit on Thu May 29, 2008 5:14 pm

Went and bought two 4x8 sheets of sheet metal today, and we're gonna start a-cuttin' here in a bit.

We did find the floors repopped on ebay, but unfortunately the cost was just too high.

We'll make some and be out far less $$$ and nobody will ever know.

We'll take pics and post 'em up here as we make progress on the floors.

As an aside, I was out of town all week, came home and fired up the olds and was greeted by ice cold air from the a/c.

Cool, literally!

Later,

Greg

Woohoo! :P . That's a lot of metal :shock: . What do you have for a welder? I've got a Hobart 130 MIG...it's about as big as it gets for 110V. I have a Linde buzz box, but no way to use it right now. Running 220 out to the garage is yet another one of the projects I still haven't gotten to :roll: .

Take lots of pics, and let us know how it goes...and don't burn through too much :o .

And that AC will be nice this summer...last summer we had a lot of triple digit days, and that car gets pretty...um, warm :? .

I have a Lincooln 225 welder running off of a 55 amp 220 circuit.

It has been a good unit, we have welded lote of very critical stuff with it and everything has held so far.

When I got it it didn't run so good, but now it will burn thru 1/4" steel with no trouble.

As for the floorpans, we got the rears fabbed up and welded in this evening. Will post pics ASAP.

Man you guys work fast!!! It took me forever to get my one little piece of floor in. The only time I really have to work on this stuff is pretty much after everyone goes to bed, so I only ever have an hour or two to work on anything. It's pretty hard for me to find help down here too, and that makes it harder. You should have seen the time I pulled the tub off my Jeep frame all by myself LOL.

My electrical service is on the back of my house across from my garage...if I want 220 out there, I'd pretty much have to rewire the garage. The wiring out there is ancient and I wouldn't trust the line going out there for 50 amps...I have a feeling I'd smell smoke if I tried to draw that much current through it. I could run a conduit under my deck and put a new box in the garage and then setup 220 wherever I want it. It would be really nice to have it out there, but it's the whole time/money thing that's kept me from doing it. Someday...

I hear ya, when we put the shop in last year we decided on dedicated 200 amp service right from the power tap in the easment.

Here's a few pics. Keep in mind we bent these floor pans up out of 16 gauge sheet metal with no metal bending equipment, so don't laugh.

Got the front passenger side floorpan done today.

The driver's side is next on the list. Then it's on to the trunk pan.

Good job ! :shock: I love the custom passenger front pan... :wink:

Congratulations. I'm unable to do some welding. When I need some welding (to redone a complete exhaust for example) I call "Bernardo" my best friend and he helps me a lot.

Your Olds is in good hands I guess.

Looks great. That's a pretty impressive job forming metal that thick without any sheet metal tools. I ended up using a couple of 2x4s and a hammer to form mine :oops: . Great job!

Thanks, Guys!

My bro did 99% of the sheetmetal work. The key was making an accurate template out of posterboard.

We then transferred the template to the steel, and simply made the cuts.

After some bending, the pans fit great.

The thickness of the steel was a real pain during the fabrication process. Thankfully, that same thickness allowed us to put the pans in without any bead rolling or stiffening......that actually saved us a lot of work.
