PostSubject: Front D/S Floor Panel Fix/Replacement   Fri Mar 27, 2015 8:09 pm

This winter has not been kind to my D1 and my front driver side floor panel took a crap and has visibly rusted through right where the floor panel meets the wheel well (I have yet to pull the carpet to find the full extent of the damage).

I am not that handy, nor do I have the time/tools to weld a new panel in so self repair is not an option.

Any one have any idea how much this kind of repair typically costs and if there are any recommendations for shops in the tri-state area that could do this kind of work?

Thanks

I'm in Brooklyn. I guess I could call Carlos @ British Autoworks and see if this is something he can do. Just wanted to hear if anyone has taken this step to begin with.

I have the same issues with my 91rrc. The usual, sills and floor boards. I am going to have my friend who has a sheet metal shop with a plasma cutter cut out what I need and I was going to weld them in. My brother in law owns a linex shop so that was going to get done on both sides of the floor pans when completely done.

You can probably order a spare door from Paul Grant and have Carlos put it in for you. Probably be the same price or cheaper as having them repair the damage. But if the bottom of the door is that bad, the sill to the floor of the truck must be in really bad shape as well.
