I had never welded before I my life and I did mine. It takes patience over skill. ( at least to just be functional) My floors cab mounts and frame tabs were all gone. With Time and patience it's all possible. Make sure you get a good seam sealer ... Don't skimp on cheap stuff. That being said ... If I did it again I would have just found a new cab and spent the time to go get it.

Before and after pics in build thread.

I'm a little late to the thread but make sure to check out tabcoparts.com Original gauge steel at cheap prices!

Another thing to consider if you are not good at welding, or don't have much experience with it. The floor pans are a great place to practice, since it will all be hidden. Much better to practice here than on a wheel well, or cab corner.

Must be great to be able to find a full floor pan. Iíve spent DAYS searching the Interwebs for a full or even half-pan for my í92 Ranger Supercab. Only found front quarter patch panels. Iím convinced that no one makes them.

Maybe the OP can answer but I have only used the Eastwood. Goes on good over the rusty parts but bare clean metal when putting it on is hard not to leave bare spots.
Oh I also brushed it on but you can spray it if you want.
