I just bought my first 2002, hello! The car is in relatively good shape but I'm gonna need to remove and replace the whole floor pan. Does anyone know where or what floor pan could fit a 2002? I found one by Goodmark that I think may fit. Thanks!

Usually, it's replaced in sections- 

you run a smaller risk of parallelogramming the 

shell that way.  Plus, the tunnel doesn't usually rust.

Often, though, if there are big holes in the floor, the rockers

need work, too.

 

Walloth and Nesch, despite their location,

are often the cheapest...

 

hth,

Restoration Design carries Walloth and Nesch panels. Buy the pans, not the entire floor.

Walloth Nesch has each pan, good price, quick shipping, fit well. You may have a good tunnel and sides... or not

Parallelogramming... dreaded final stages of Instagramming. Talk to your friends, before it’s too late. 

 

Seriously, replace the floor in sections.

Could be worse- you could rhombusize yourself.

...and the firewall/pedal box. If the corrosion on the FP is internal you will be into the firewall. On the '72 I welded in the floor drain plugs. Given that you would only do this mod after replacing the windshield gasket and heater box rebuild you won't need them;) 

I had an awful time getting my hand with the sheet metal welds. I'm a pipe fitter/welder by trade but taht was all pipeline, powerhouse and refinery work. Heavy pipe and big heat. One thing that helped me was to pound a piece, I used 1 1/2, of copper pipe flat and use it to back up your welds. Takes some of the heat out and both sped up the job and improved the result.
