What is the best thing to do with the seams where the floor panels have been welded in? Should I weld them up? or Paint and seam sealer?

Seeing you have it on a rotisserie, I would tap that overlap flush & weld it fully. That will then allow you to give it a light grind & with a small amount of filler, make it undetectable from the underside.

I did that to the RH rear floor of Q as after blasting I felt it was a little thin, so I replaced that section.



If replacing floor "sections" & have the luxury of a rotisserie, then tack weld the floor in from the top, flip the body on it's side & fully weld the bottom. Sealer is then good enough for the top.

Registration authorities like "lap welding" of floors because it is the easiest method to obtain the original strength back in that section.

Finally found a little bit of time to do some work so I thought I would tackle removing the rear shock mount and make a start on stripping back the floor pan.
As it was late on Saturday arvo I didn't like my chances of getting a spot weld removal drill so I ground up a sheet metal drill and drilled out all the spotwelds.
Well at least I thought I had until it still wouldn't budge.
I didn't even consider that there would be more on the inside of it connecting to the inside of the rails. The grinder soon fixed that though.
Now I need to find some more time it install the new one.

Thought I'd add a update. I've welded in the new rear shock mount.


and '69 Torque boxes



I also found some spare time at work and knocked myself up a set of balljoint wedges.



What's the best thing to do with the underneath of the car? I have POR 15 to paint it with but not sure if I should leave it with that finish or paint something else over the POR. Any suggestions or opinions?

Intergard 269. A very cost effective product $70.00 for 4 litres and it is bullet proof stuff. Can get it in red or black. Check out my recent posts on my thread (Mike's 68) and you'll see what it looks like.

Are you leaving the Intergard 269 as your final coat on the underside of the floorpan ? Or painting over it with something else?

You can leave it if you want. Stuff is bullet proof.

That is the finish on Q....

I already have the POR15 to go on. So would I still put the Interguard on as well?

POR for inside pillars & maybe the inside floors. Intergard for outside & in the trunk. Also good primer for the engine bay,

Interested to know where you guys buy this Intergard paint in Perth? Sounds like a good primer for my engine bay.

Cheers, Neil.

Shelby drop.
Still have to make the small wedges for the top of the control arm yet.

When you do the shelby drop, it affects the angle of the ball joint to the point where they can come apart. The wedges help bring the angle back to where it should be.

I went to weld on the extra 69-70 brace for the torque boxes. does the brace go under or over the top of the rail seam? As you can see by the pics it fits alot better over but I assume it is meant to go under.
