Floor Pan Repair

I've searched the forums and cannot find any before and after pics of floor pan rust repair. Can it be done without taking the tub off the frame? Do you buy the pre made ones like Quadratec sells or do you make your own. Tips and tricks?

I just replaced the drivers side floor pan on my YJ this fall. There reallys wasn't much left of it, and the Q-tec panel didn't even fill in the hole, although I could have made one I opted to buy the Q-tec one. Once it came and it wasn't big enough I just added a couple filler pieces to make it fit my very large hole.

The panel can be fabricated, but with all the angles and such I decided it was worth the $50 to not have to mess with making one...

I repaired mine with the tub still on the frame without issue. I also repaired some tub rot and a couple small holes on the passenger floor. I then put in bedliner (Herculiner) and no carpet.

As for tips N tricks- I used a few self tapping sheet metal screws to hold the panel in place then did very short (3/4") stich welds, one on each of the four sides to keep the panel from warping due to the heat. I then kept filling in stiches (spaced apart) until all the stitches met. I then removed the screws and filled in the holes with some more weld. I did the same for the underside in the spots I could reach. :-)


Cheers!
