    Brian,
    Yes the floors and every other sheetmetal part we replaced so far is from Classic.

    I rate the product high and fit was great.

    The only thing I did not like was shipping.... was not done in a timely manner.

    Your lucky,
    My Frame was rotted into the ground and my GH was snapping in half like a pencil.

    I guess the roof & glass held it together until we replaced the floors & frame.

    I posted these pix from when I did the floors on my '53 back in the mid 90s a while back but here they are again. Tack weld angle irons to keep the door posts from moving before you start cutting.









    In my case, my frame was rotted out too and I had to repair it at the same time as the body so it was quite a concern not to allow anything to move.



    Hopefully you are not having that problem!

    "Measure 5 times, cut once & re-measure before welding." is the best advice I have. Bob is right about keeping things square and in place during the entire proceedure!

    I noticed there are a bunch of videos over on YouTube if you search using "Floor pan replacement." However...you have to sort through the ones with the blasting rap music and the ones done by people who clearly don't know what they are doing.

    It's reasonably straight forward but just a couple of thoughts. I assume the body is still on the frame so be sure to brace the door posts in position if you are cutting the floor pans near them.

    Secondly, when you get the old floor out, be sure to look for rusty braces etc. Replace if necessary.

    BTDT, and certainly WELCOME!!!! to the forum, glad you are aboard.
