Yesterday I went and picked up the Dynacorn trunk/floor/frame assembly that Dave at Roseville set me up with.  They want to ship to a business with a dock or there is an additional charge for a lift gate truck.  Had it delivered to a friends business and was easy to move it to the trailer.  Then this after noon the common carrier delivered my quarter skins from the AMD clearance sale.  Credit card took a big hit this month but it will make for a busy summer!

Finally started on replacing my floor pans. Got the 4 speed hump out, Iím hoping I can reuse it, but it got beat up a little bit. Might as well buy the AMD for the price. Still need to grind the rest of the spot weld out

the State went into 'stay at home' mode today, but I was able to get the Barracuda back from it's rust repair/metal work. at least now I have some more time on my hands, lol. glad to get it back before things get too locked down

Take some good measurements to where that hump is / was located before all is removed.

What I did was, I saved the chunk of floor that had the holes from the factory and I just trimmed off the excess and laid it on top of the new floor pan, marked it with a china marker and then cut out the necessary holes. Easy-peasy.  :cheers:

Thanks for the advice! My plan was to do it the hard way and try to remove the whole existing floor pan in one piece without cutting it up. Then take measurement on all the spot welds and sit it on top of the new AMD piece.

Is there any reason to have the floor under the hump stick out so far underneath? I feel like it would just trap dirt and moisture. Do you seam seal joints from the bottom of the floor like you do on the top?

You can trim it back flush without the wide lip under the tunnel no harm done

Completed a week ago...
Pic 1 Placed the QA1 k-member on the foam packing material on a floor jack. So the foam would give rather than damaging something during install. Engine was held up with a sling over a 2x6 beam that was placed across inner fenders.
Pic 2 rolled it under the car and lowered the car onto the k-member. It lined up perfectly. Installed the four k-member bolts and two motor mount bolts and torgued. Removed the engine support.
Total install time about 20 minutes (from rolling it under to tightening bolts)
Pic 3&4 more room

Does it make the car handle better? More solid up front? I dunno. I'll let you know this summer. We still have snow on the ground now.

Ordered a bunch of AMD parts.  Front fenders, rear 1/4ís, inner and outer rear wheel wells, trunk floor extensions and front and rear valances.  And a front fender mounting kit.   :twothumbsup:  Of course I ordered when the Canadian Dollar was at its weakest. Haha
