  I cleaned and sprayed undercoat in the channel before I weld on the "top". I can not spray anything inside when covered. Seam sealer will be used on top and bottom when completed.

  Today I finished the center support. Grinded the surface rust from the rest of the area and primed the complete floor pan area front and back. Except for under where the back seat goes. Waiting to start on the wheel wells and dogleg area before I prime that area. All thats left is to apply the seam sealer. I will do that before I start on the passingers side cow area. I will start that area this weekend. Probally seam seal tomorrow or saturday. Working saturday, so it should be good and dry.

  making good progress these hot days. I am watching out for heat problems. Taking breaks every hour or so. getting there, little by little. Here's a few pictures of todays progress. Remember, the brown paint is Rust O leum primer.

  Today after work and it got a little cooler just before the sun passed the top of the trees I put on the seam sealer. Now, the drivers side floor is ready for the total painting. That will happen when the car is done. Tomorrow, if the weather allows, I will start the Passingers cow and work my way to the center of the floor area. Note: I used another brush with paint thinner, and went over the sealer to smooth it out to fill in the gaps better. This works well.

  Looks like this side is not as bad. In fact, I think, I may be able to complete this area this week end and start of the cow dividers, and prep for the installation of the spring tower covers, and undercoat. Hopefully, I can get that far this weekend. Here's pictures of todays progress.

  After the Rust O Leum primer, The seam sealer went on. It was a bit difficult to put it into the little corners, but I did. This is the center beam area. Under the car.

  Today was a busy day. Started working on the car after breakfast. Slept in a little today... Started on the car about 10:30.. Stoped about 7PM. Got a lot done. Tomorrow, I will continue preping. In piticular, the area along the front rocker where the fender meets. I wanted to let the primer and the sealer dry before I started on that area. Tomorrow, it's that area to prep and then cut in the patches and weld.

  The cow area is done. The inside is preped and ready for the patches. Not as large as the Drivers side. Here's todays pictures. And there is a lot of pictures...

  The inside passingers floor was a little more difficult than the cow, but not as difficult as the drivers side. There are two spots in the front floor, and two spots in the back floor. Yes, the center beam needs some work just like the other side. Hopefully, tomorrow I can do that, and get the floor done... Here's some pictures of the inside work today.

  This is under the front floor, in the same area as the Drivers area but not as bad.

  The round thing is where the seat belts were to bolt to, that is, if you purchased seat belts in those days. They were lap belts only, shure to break your back in most accidents. Thats why shoulder belts are now in service.

Comment:
  The top front passingers floor. Looks kinda simple huh?. There is a bean under there. A small one, but still a beam.

  This one here is a small one. Just above the seat mounting. I desided to delete the drain hole too.
