it may be possible that the floor was rotted out, so instead of replacing the floor they covered it with fiberglass, I dont think that would cause it to rot because it would be sealed, unless they put the fiberglass on the car when it was all wet, never know ...

god luck stripping it off, better wear a respirator, those fiberglass dust dont go to well with human lungs..

I put a thin layer of fiberglass over my floor pans because of some small holes. To me it didn't justify replacing the entire pan especially on a driver. However, I covered with POR-15 before the fiberglass. I have a 77 Dodge truck that this was done to back in the mid 80's because of rust created by the air-cond. leaking inside the cab instead of out. The Dodge floor is no worse off over 15 years later. Of course if your working on a future show car and have it apart, now would be the time to fix it.

here in iowa, they put this stuff they call SALT (calcium choride) on the roads during the winter to melt the ice. if you have the same problem in canada and if they covered the floor with fiberglass with salt still on the metal,it would be very possible...if moisture can get in anywhere past the seams
