Default Full floor pan,......

What full floor pan did you use and what did you think of the cut and fit?

Theres a pretty big difference in pricing that some offer especially with the additional 20% discount that is offered from CJ when they run a sale.

I used the Dynacorn floor from NPD. Cut and fit were excellent.

If I am not mistaken I/we used the lower $$ of NPD's floor pan. It fit like a glove, the metal was a little thinner (from what the catalog implied) which allowed it to bend some to fit it into the car- but welded up-its like a rock. If they are all like that- I wouldn't spend extra $$-

I used the thicker more expensive one. It came in bare metal, no electroplating. Popped right in with no problems.

Thanks for the heads up on the thinner, cheaper pan being good to go

I think you could have used all of that packing paper to mask your car when you were ready to paint.

i used a spectra, its very thick, and fit was great.

might actually be harder to form into the floor crossmember section than the thinner pieces which might be a good thing, or a bad thing depending on how hard you are willing to work.

I used the one from cj, it was prety hefty and fit perfect.

I really don't think you have a choice in what you get for the most part, this is currently one of those parts that get rebadged a bunch.

Ya know- you might be on to something there: We did install the floor tight to the tranny hump x member (way tighter than either of the other two stangs here that have factory floors) and it was easy to pull tight at the rockers as well.

Our U.S.-made 011135-1A is Sherman. Our imported 011135-1AR is Golden Legion. I'm not sure who Dynacorn is buying their pan through, but there are plenty of different full-floor tools running in Taiwan.

So even though the U.S. importers may be sticking their logo on pans, it is not really a case of everybody rebadging the same part.

We chose our imported pan carefully.

Rick, I had just assumed my NPD floor was Dynacorn. I thought the sales guy on the NPD phone said it was but it was a long time ago. Could you look at the first few pics in This Link and tell me if you think it looks like the Golden Legion floor or the Sherman? Regardless, it fit great but I'd like to know for future threads like this and to correct my blog. It was purchased in Nov of 2008. Thanks!
