Thanks for the updates. I appreciate the article. I purchased a VW magazine and it has the “bug me” site listed for installation of floor pans. I may purchase the tape or when I have a chance I am going to have the local welder look and see what can be done. Since the pans are just welded in obviously they have attachment points and the current welds are just not done properly. with some cleaning and re-welding I am sure I can regain stability and strength. Thanks, I will advise my progress as I go along. It will probably be well into the 1st quarter of 05 before I get going on the rebuild. Thanks, Jim Hine interested member for the new site and features added. Thanks for setting up new site and all of the new additions.
