    HELP A BEGINNER OUT!
    I HAVE AN 80 MONTE CARLO PROJECT GOING... SINCE MY SEATS ARE BEING REDONE I FIGURED I WOULD TACKLE THE FLOORBOARDS...
    I ALWAYS KNEW THEY WERE RUSTING TROUGH BUT I KNOW THERE ARE WAYS TO FIX IT...

    I DON'T CURRENTLY OWN A WELDER SO I WAS CURIOUS TO KNOW IF THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES TO FIXING MY RUSTY FLOORBOARDS... I'VE BEEN TOLD TO RIVET SOME TIN AND THEN SEAL IT? WILL THIS WORK?

    IF WORSE COMES TO WORSE CAN I USE THE FLOORBOARDS OUT OF ANOTHER G BODY? I HAVE AN 85 CUTLASS PARTS CAR... WILL THAT WORK?

    I WILL TRY TO POST PICTURES TONIGHT AFTER WORK..

    please do not rivet... please

    tahts a GARBAGE fix...

    cut out the bad stuff, and about .5-1" around it... and weld in new metal.. or use donor floors..

    if the area is big you wanna bead roll some lines into it for strength

    how about some pics?
