..major floor repair help needed..

alright guys. its been a while, but i have acquired a new project! this time a 67 C10. the floor of the cab is shot. probably literally, but its not noticeable as most of it isn't there.

but i'm wondering my bewst way to go about repairing this.

A.) buy O/E replacement cab corners, rocker panels, and floor pans, although i can't find a place that sells the piece of steel that goes under the gas tank. but the above 3 items, for each side, will run me 178.50, w/ tax.

B.) Graft in a new floor off of a newer truck..is that possible?? i dunno, i thought the idea was appealing, or find a solid floor off of a truck of that style.

C.) make my own out of sheet metal/diamond plate/ whatever is handy.

if anyone out there could give me some input...i'd greatly appreciate it.

thanx for your time.

Cab corner & rockers are best to be bought, the time you will spend making cab corners is not worth it. the floor you may be able to fab, all depends on how flat it is. I replace a couple of cab corners about a month ago for a friends GMC and only took an hour or so to remove the two cab corners with a grinder & cutoff disk and mig weld them into place and a skim coat of filler over the welds

My floor has little daylight holes all around the toe area and some small rust through areas where the floor angles up to the firewall. It is thin but solid and the shape is there. I'm going to check into the POR-15 floor patch kit. Any other thoughts there??

i used the por 15 floor patch the floor still flexed to much so i also fiberglassed over the por15 this worked out nice and made the floor look good to i had some fairly big holes but the fiberglass will go right over the por 15 if needed
