    Both actually. The 57 got the deepened tubs from Real Deal Steel and the trunk pan comes pre configured for that. I did all of the cutting on the front floor while it was out of the car. Somewhere, I documented the cut lines, maybe on my picturetrail account. Once fitment was completed, I joined (welded) the two out of car. I had sheet metal screwed them before hand so I knew it all was correct On the 55 vert, I used a toe to bumper. no tubs. Two others, toe to bumper. All real deal steel.

There are pinholes along the weld and it's warped badly. There is rust and holes along the wheelwell flanges and the back corners have been patched, but there's still some rust holes.

    So it looks like we're probably replacing the trunk floor too. I asked Steve to come up and take a look at it because I didn't want to do something he doesn't think needs to be done. I'm not sure what level he wants to take this car to.

    Starting to sound like mission creep. Better stay away from the outer body panels, because it seems like a real hack has been working on it. I know you don't want to get into body work.

    Exactly. I don't even know why I'm doing these floors to tell the truth. It's the last thing I'm going to commit to doing on this car. I might add a gas tank support if he wants one on the frame, since I have done that for several C4 conversion frames. At least I know what I'm getting into there.
