I am restoring a 1967 Cougar, which is pretty much the same thing as a '67 Mustang. I am just about ready to install new floor pans and I'm not sure what to use to cut the old ones out with(plasma gun, angle cutter, oxy cut?). I have been told to watch out for the frame rails while I do this, but which technique would be the best?

I recently had my 71 coupe in for tranny work (rebuild). Now that it's back it won't start any more. The weirdest thing is that when you turn the key nothing happens but when you make contact with the gas pedal you engage the radio and starter! That lasted for a few trys and now nothing happens except you still get your dash board idiot lights to come on. Have checked wiring bundles and they appear ok. Changed out starter relay and no change. Followed gas pedal and cable through fire wall and don't see anything. Touching the pedal must complete a ground but wanted to know if this has ever happened to any of you? Hope you can help.

Could you please start your own thread in repairs and mainteneces

There are multiple ways to repair floor rust, but as for as I'm concerned there is only one right way:

Cut out ALL the rust and weld in a patch :thumbs: .

Other options are :screwy: :

Panel adhesive
Pop rivet
Sheet metal screws

The above are easy and convenient, but are not permanent and will hurt the resale if you plan on selling it in the future. The best way to remove the rust is with an abrasive cut-off wheel. They make an adapter to attach them to a drill. If you have never done anything like this before I suggest you read lots of articles, ask friends for help, or take it to a body shop. It’s a great feeling to do it yourself, and if you go that route take your time, and ask questions as you go.

Good Luck and have fun.
