67 Floor Pan

If I was to cut out and install a new 1 piece floor pan on a 67 Fastback would I need to brace
Anything or could I jack stand the front suspension and rear axle and start drilling spot welds?..........Never did it before.
I have cut off and reinstalled rear quarters and tail light panels on 63-67 vettes.
Which I know is different but I have a buddy helping me who is a welder
Thanks
Dave

If your car is completely assembled with the windshield in, your problem may be getting a 1 piece in the car. I have always found it better to cut the floor out as close to the perimeter as you can then remove the remnants left around the edges, torque box and floor supports. It is always a good idea to support the car in several places to prevent it from sagging when cutting out panels but there is not a good way to brace the car inside where it would need to be without being in the way of replacing the 1 piece floor pan.

If your torque box, frame rails and rockers are sound you won't have to weld any braces inside.

The floor pan will not fit through the windshield. It will fit through the door but you've gotta pull the door off.

If your car is stripped down and the glass is removed from the windshield area, a one piece floor pan will fit through the windshield opening. This was the easiest way for me to install the pan working by myself.

I have never "made" anything, I just modify the things around me into useful items with abilities that were GIVEN to me.

I just installed a one piece floor pan in my 67 coupe through the door opening with the door on the car.

I fit the floor pan from the bottom on my 65 fastback.
