    I'm assuming you mean the seat braces where the seat track studs bolt through the floor?

    If so, used are you only option. Luckily they don't often rot out

    I'm only going by memory here but aren't those things just a small plate with a nut welded to it?

    Yep looks right. But I am a few adult beverages in right now. I can build them if I have to. Just looking for a fast way to stick them in. I am at this point a bolt up weld up kinda guy.

    where did you find floor pans? I just ordered some off eBay and really not impressed with the quality. The fitment and stamping on it is really disappointing. The lines that are stamped into the original floors are 5.5mm deep and on the replacement pans are only 0.5mm at the deepest point.

    Thanks for posting that pic! Very helpful! That brace where the body mounts and seats attach is what I deal with!

    Haven't got them yet. Just started removing the seats and wanted to see what parts I could get.

    I ordered some from a website and they were pretty much the same thing you got by the sound of it. Probably all made in the same place. I'm pretty sure they're not stamped, rather hand-made by someone with a brake, slip roller, and bead roller. But as far as I've seen and read here, that's the best option we have, aside from getting cuts from a donor car...

    In my case I only had to use the driver side and I made it work. It wasn't drop-in but was quicker than starting with a flat piece of sheet metal (for me anyway)...
