replacing the floor and rocker panel on my 89 4x4
I started with a good clean up, I had gutted the interior last fall



rocker panel from the donor truck, and the 2 new floor pans

cutting out the floor


braceing the body with all thread to keep it from sagging when I cut out the rocker panel

cutting out the rocker panel

trimming the donor, and trial fit


welding in progress


tomorrow I have to finish weld the rocker, then patch the floor, and the welding on the left side will be done.
