With the new right-side rocker assembly tacked into place on the inside of the shell, Ramon begins the task of cutting out the rusty floorpan. He removes the pan in small sections, being careful not to cut through anything we'll reuse. Note in the picture, too, that bracing has been added to the car.

A tape measure is a good tool here. Record all measurements before cutting.
