Floor pan replacement
 
I need to replace a floor pan on the drivers side of my '92 wrangler or it will be a Flinstone- mobile pretty soon. Any tips, tricks or things I should need or look for?

Get yourself some spot weld cutters.

It's not a bad repair if you're comfortable with welding. The floor pans that they sell fit the whole foot well but I squared up the hole where there was still good metal and used it as a template for the repair piece. It also goes easier if you remove all seats carpet and the gas pedal. Plus it gives you a chance to look at the rest of the floor especially under the seats. Afterwards use sealer on the seams and undercoat underneath.

I was also told that bed-liner was something to think about?.. Is it a good idea to spray the floor with a few cans afterward?

How bad is the rotting? Do you really need a compete floor pan entirely? Even if you rivet in some sheetmetal, you can heavily coat the floor with Bedliner like you said, which will stop the rusting completely.

When my brother had my jeep he riveted a piece and it lasted a little while but never seemed solid. The floor pans don't cost too much, are bead rolled and bent to fit. You can do the other way too if you just need to get by, but if given the chance, do it right

Its just rusted almost through on the plane that is parallel to the ground. The rest is in really good shape. I was planning on cutting out the bad spots and then riveting the new pan over it, then spray some Bedliner on.
