Default Full floor pan install

I am getting ready to install a full floor pan in my 69 camaro and I would like to know how good the floor actually fits. I know that it will need some working but I might have second thoughts if the fit of the full floor is way off and requires massive work just to get it to fit. Any info on the topic would be great. Thanks

I just finished welding my in on my 68. Can say it was as smooth as I though it would be but definitely doable.

I did mine last summer, and it's really not that bad. Just
make sure the inner rockers are cleaned up pretty good, (grinded down and smooth) also the front and back lips. I mean the up by the firewall
and back by the front of the trunk pan. Where the the floor will actually
sit. I lifted the front of the car up, and put the floor in from the front,
I tried through the window area, it just worked out better coming in
from the front. The new floor fit well,

MAN that photo looks great! I only hope my full floor goes in that well. I am worried that it is too narrow and won't meet the inner rockers enough. I measured the opening and it is too large right now!!!

It may be since my new full floor is leaning on one side and compacting slightly? I am hoping for that to be true. It's about 1 1/2 inches off right now. Wish me luck....

Yeah man you need to lay that thing down and measure it then... I would suggest storing it with the firewall side down, I think that it is more stable that way... You don't want it to develop a "memory" and always want to form back to the way that it is sitting now.... JMO

Here are a few from my 67 to see whats up. I am replacing the firewall too, so getting the pan in from the front is a piece of cake... the only pain is my car has a full frame so the rear rails stick through the floorpan where the back seat passengers feet go (installing plate inside to eliminate bump) The Dynacorn full floor pans are a nice fit and quality and would recommend doing a full one before patching one. I am in the initial mock up mode, measuring and fitting my cuts so they can be tig welded during the final assembly. Just measure 30 times and cut things too long until they fit to avoid (I cut it 3 times and it was still too short...lol)

Mine seemed like it was off too! but when ya go to install it does flatten out to both
rockers. Its the tunnel that's takes up the 1 1/2, On the ground have a friend hold one side and you pull the other side it will stretch out. The whole floor pan has the tunnel
molded in it, so the metal kinda scrunches up a little!

You're right. I really should rotate it in the box and stand it up on its end like you said--thanks... tomorrow I will do that. Makes sense...

yes--thanks! I will get that done tomorrow and check it laying down so I can see that it fits. I think after I first brought it into my garage, I was just so concerned as to where I was going to store it, that I didn't even consider standing it up on the firewall end. thanks again...

may sound strange but use rachet straps to pull it all together if you have gaps. i did my floor then lower firewall/toeboards they all fit great.dont forget to brace inside the car before you start. thanks for the comments keep at it it gets easier the farther you get.
