Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Hello everyone. I spent an hour in the shop after work today and managed to get my floor pan close to fitting. Still gotta beat it around a bit more yet and do a little trimming. The second picture shows where I really had to unleash hell on it.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

More progress to report. I was trying to figure out how I could bend the flange at the front edge of my floor pan. I thought about a brake but it was not flat enough to put in a brake. Then I found some vise grips that would work perfect! Rather than buy them, I figured I would be resourcful and re purpose a pair of old vise grips that my dad had lying around. Couple pieces of scrap metal and about 2 mins of welding and bam! So now that Ive got that out of the way, the slow process of trimming down to fit slowly so as not to cut too much off can continue. Starting to see some good progress here! :metal

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Nice work. Ton of metal repair you're having to do. You may not be happy with your welds, but I'm really impressed with your cuts. They seem super precise. What are you using?

Thanks for the compliments. As far as my welds go, Im noticing slow improvment so hopefuly by the time Im onto body panels, Ill be a master. And for my cuts, I am using a Makita 5" Angle grinder.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

And we now have a floor pan! I finished up all the prep on my flange and got it fitting the way I wanted and welded her up. Still have a little grinding to do by the transmission tunnel then its on to the next piece.

Re: My 1970 GMC Project

Very cool stuff! I like the vise grips! I was going to do that but after looking at harbor freight the price was too good. The progress you are making is making me jealous! At this rate you will be done in no time!!

Thanks! The vise grips are awesome! I realize I could have got them for 20 bucks here in town but these cost me nothing. Now I have 20 bucks for other parts or supplies! I do hope I will be done in no time as well. Just need to get the truck home before that point.
