I would either replace your firewall then do the floor or wait until your prepared to do both.

thats what i was afraid of, but there is literally no floor and i want to atleast be able to drive the car.

there are no holes in the firewall, it just looks bad, maybe i should hit it with the grinding disc and see if its ok under the surface rust.

i really just dont know how to determine if its rusted too bad to weld to. also, how high do the toe boards go, do i need to remove the heater box?

sorry i'm such a noob. i've done metal work just not on anything old where rust was an issue.

Look at the mine below. you can see the seam where the floor board overlaps the toe boards of the firewall. The overlap is something like an inch if I remember right.

I would first clean up your firewall (i.e., remove any rust) to see what you have. Take some pictures of any concerns you may have.

Would be a good time to also check your cowl for rust.

Do you have an old thread on your progress with the floor replacement? Looks like it came out great....

I'm going into the garage tonight, I need to get this thing done!

Wareagle thanks for the help. So the toe board starts at the 45 angle of the floor and goes up to where the firewall is at a 90?

I'm sure the cowl is probably trashed as the driver side floor is perfect but passenger side is nearly gone. I need to get the heater box out the way and take a look at everything. The outer lip of the cowl where the export brace bolts to is almost non existent.

That is correct.

You can open the heater box door and stick your arm in and up to confirm. Could also remove the fresh air assembly on driver's side to check that side.

BTW, what year is your car?

Its a 66 coupe. I have looked at the driver side cowl from beneath the dash and it looks good the drivers floors and firewall are all good aswell all the first is on the passenger side. I guess at this point I need to check the firewall and figure out if its OK to weld the new RH toe to. Should have all the new panels this week or next. Thanks for the help so far.
