Kudos for building your own replacement floor pieces, rare now to see someone going to the effort today with the amount of throw away products out there. I am amazed when I go through the JY these days the newness of the cars / trucks in there, just pitched because it was easy. It tells you a lot about what's wrong in the auto industry. I ran across a 2015 Equinox (all of them are bad actually) and couldn't believe the amount of destruction inside with garbage everywhere.My setup was pretty rudimentary. Ball peen hammer, recess groove on the bed/tailgate of my 49 gmc and a piece of rectangular tube to form the sub frame flanges. Its just as functional as a bead roller and it made it plenty strong and it was basically free. I highly doubt anyone will ever see the floors besides me because i will drive this car until its beyond dead. So i call it a win.
Always liked those Borbet wheels on these cars.Yea well I already did all the body and paint on it so the floors were something I had to fix because I wasn’t gonna get rid it of after all that work I did previously. I agree its WAYYYYY easier to go buy something newer than to waste countless hours working on junks....but getting 900+mi per tank is hard to let go haha.

We're gonna need pictures...just for fun that is!Well I decided to pick up a B4V parts car. PO got rear ended & pulled the engine/trans and proceeded to leave it in the barn... For years.
Like @Starion_slider I needed a potential floor donor. This one was it. He'd had all carpet, insulation out & finished with dynamat + foam.
I pulled most everything out & made dump run #1. Trying to cut out whole floor tub with as large a margins possible...
Bonus! Intact OEM cup holder and a hoard of new in box parts, rear brake, OEM window glass already out & intact, and (aftermarket) alloys.
I am going to finish all chopping I can tomorrow and then she's off to the scrapper...
Wow, I can’t believe I posted that in the beginning of December... seemed like a month ago...Opened the hood of the B4V to compare some unknown injector lines. Noticed an injector jumper hose was wet, so I replaced it. Then I noticed the GP harness was cracking badly. It basically crumbled in my hands... discovered #3 terminal was broken off. I forgot how badly the terminals fit on the GPs... I’d say there’s no grip, at all. The rubber boots are what’s really holding them on. Gave them a slight crimp and pushed them back on. I’ve got 3 functional GPS, for now.
