When we restored a 1967 Porsche 912 at Restoration Design, a lot of prep work went into the floor pan installation.
First, we replaced all of the flanges in the tunnel and front and back perimeter. This inspired us to put together a kit for purchase to make this part of the process a lot easier and less time-consuming for all of you.
Our professional steal beater, Wes, replaced the inner and outer rocker on both sides of the floor and took the time to replace the heater tube while we could still access it.
We also took the opportunity to replace the brake line which was rusted. You should always take the time to replace or repair any pieces in the tunnel during this stage of the process, while you still have access to them.
The floors we make come in three pieces: rear section, front section and gas pedal piece. In this video, we focused on the rear and front sections.
When you first put the floor pans in place, you’ll need to determine what adjustments you need to make to fit it into the flanges.
When both floor pans are in place, make some final adjustments for the scribe lines.
