Floor pan rust - fix or remove?

The drivers side floor plan in my 95 YJ is getting pretty soft. A year and a half ago I coated it with POR-15 to slow the corrosion process down. After this winter, however, flakes of rusted sheet metal have started coming loose. My question is, what would be the best way to eliminate the problem? I know POR makes a Floor pan/trunk restoration kit that sells for approximately $160. Has anyone used this kit? Is it effective? Or, should I cut the rusted metal out, buy a replacement floor pan and weld it in?

Thanks in advance for any advice/experience.

yes cut out
I would use some scrap ,sign would be a good width
something u can bend with a vice and cut
easy enough
weld if you want , I would ,but I know a guy that
just pre drilled and used heavy sheet metal screws
but he also did it inside and out
then he had this black tar stuff on
the outside seams

sorry, not to hijack your thread or anything, but reading this made me laugh.

a few years back on my way home from Moab, we decided to stop in at this beat looking diner in Wellington, Ut. Anyways, they had used street signs and road construction signs (you know, the big orange ones) as their dining tables!

it was kinda cool actually. i think the food was only good because we were in the desert for so long.
so yeah theres my random story of the day.... sorry!
