Nice work....looking forward to seeing more pictures of the restoration work.

I plan to rebuild it piece by piece (CO welding)
I also thinking of option to add structure reinforcement and supports more then the original.

STEP BY STEP

That'll work...please keep us updated!

my first work with MIG Welder
I cut the old rusty plate and weld a new plate with reinforcement in the back.
also use some rust converter, not including the area that need future welding.

Well not a concours repair but should be strong enough. A word to the wise you need to coat the underside of the panel with something such as, truck bed liner or ??? as that flat panel will vibrate like crazy between the welds. Bed liner, sound proofing or something similar, will deaden the vibration and keep it from driving you nuts! Just a thought. JTS 71 Mach1

Well You closed the hole. What you may not realize is that all those ribs, valleys, bends, in the original panels are there for strength, and rigidity. For general repairs, what you've done is adequate, but it has compromised the strength of the floor, to some degree. For a daily driver you shouldn't ever have a problem with this kind of repair, but it's not the best way to do it. Just some more thoughts on the subject. JTS 71 Mach1
