What would be the difference between Dynacon and say Goodmark?

I would say that Dynacorn is USA made and Goodmark is Taiwan but I am not sure. Go with the USA made. I bought a set from Classic Muscle in Winston Salem, NC. After buying the imports first I switched them out for the USA made. Whole lot better stamping. I am not sure who made them though.

Dynacorn is imported also. But if you need the full pan its the way to go. Generally if it is the repo metal coms with black Ecoat it is imported. US is bare metal.

Dynacorn is a US based company that recently bought the original molds and presses from GM. (They do have a sister plant in Canada.)
http://www.dynacorn.com
You can now order a tubbed '69 convertible for around 10k.
HotRod and several mags have done recent write-ups.
They recently closed their legal battles with GM over selling new 1st gen parts, vs. selling new 1st gen cars, interesting read..

I bought and installed a Dynacorn full floorpan.
GREAT FIT.!
I have never done anything like this before.
It had notches that matched up with my rockers and firewall.
They even had the cut-outs for slide bolts, used to hold the rear leaf spring receiver.



Goodmark has done a great job refabbing for years, but use their "reverse engineered molds"
http://www.goodmarkindustries.com/

Both are authorized GM replacement parts, but I'd recommend a Dynacorn reseller.

Ghostbuster,

When you said you used their complete floor pan...I see your front and rear (trunk) complete floor assemblies but i also see that they are already assembled???? Did they come like this? I knew the floor (cockpit) was available as 1 piece and ditto for trunk but not that they we're available already stitched together?

Also, you seem to be using weld in subframe connectors, will you change your frame rails for weld in model that goes with the frame connectors?

Did it really go that well replacing the 1 piece floor? Did you use braces or just level the car, remove and replace?

Thanks for your input!

Lead.

I purchased a complete floorpan, a trunk pan, new rockers, weld-in rear frame rails, floor braces, etc..
I welded them all together to build my rolling chassis..
(check out my profile image..)
I completly dismanteled the car and started building from the ground up..
My car was so rusted, I thought this would be easier and straighter.
Here is a pics of the assembly process, (notice the clamps, not welding yet)..

I know that this is an old thread, but while looking for floorpan threads I found it and had to lol... Here is the tag I just took off my Dynacorn floorpan, I assume it's Taiwan Minnesota? lol

i also used dynacorn,fit very well. they don't come with the front seat risers i reused my old ones. full trunk floor is from them too.
i dont think its worth buying the unit together. its 2x what i paid for mine in 2 parts.

Default Re: Floor pan replacement

I have been reading all of the posts, good information here. I wanted to ask a quick question, the floor pan has 4 holes in it. 2 on each side, however under the rear seats, the center, and the front seat brackets are fine. Would it be easier to replace the two sides or just replace the entire floor pan? The full floor pan is a lot more expensive than purchasing just the left and right sides. I was wondering which would be the easier and cheapest labor wise?

Easiest & cheapest would be the seperate pans but be aware that once you start getting into it you may find more rust. You'll also have to reuse the seat brackets if you go that route. I believe some of them come already installed on the complete floors.
