    Front floor pans!

    Here is a link to an ebay seller with front floor pans for our 2 doors!
    They sell left, right or a pair. It is great to see some parts come available.

    On their website they have them listed for 59.99 each, so its a bit cheaper than their ebay listing, but ebay is free shipping but i dont think shipping would be 80 bucks though!

    The company also lists a front fender, left side I think. Outer rocker panels are available too.

    I didnt have any (still dont) experience in welding or metal fab, but on my first caprice about 8 years ago the driver side floor pan was totally gone rusted away, so for the repair i cut up a 55 gallon drum and used my neighbors old 110v welder, worked pretty good, my first and last time welding lol.
