I went with the sawzall for the major removal, then cutting wheel/grinder to clean everything up. Didn't take long at all to get it outta there.

I must say that that is quit a bling bling floor...65% more tite than the one I put in mine

At least you can work on your tan in your Jeep with all the reflection......

I take it you aren't replacing the front floor boards, just the back?

cut -off wheel or air nibblers.

you're gonna put a LIBERAL coat of liquid nails between all that Al and any steel it touches so you don't get a galvanic response.
I take it you planned on blinding other drivers and traffic helicopters?

No, but your ass will look fat.

When are you doing the install?

I don't know, I painted mine black after driving it once - the heat and the glare were terrible. Plus it looked like chrome and that is just plain wrong on a willys

For the most part, but the headlight bezels are fine chrome.

I've been trying to grow a fat ass for years

The install will take place over the next couple of weeks

The floor is actually starting out in three pieces, the tub, under the seats, and the fire-wall. I still need to cut the piece above to size (the above piece measures 4x7' flat), cut the fronts of the fender wells back, weld on fronts of the fender wells, cut to size and bend (or have bent) the bends in the floor under the seats, and the bend up to the firewall. I also need to construct the sub-frame (2x2x1/4" aluminum box), connect the subframe to the floor, and cut and connect 3/4" angle to the body with the 5200 and some stainless fasteners, then weld the floor to the angle.

been doing a little cutting, I've removed the wheel wells, ground off most of where they attached to the sides as well. I've cut along most of the perimiter of the floor, but I've left it attached for support. I still have a little trimming left to do on the d/p to make it fit (radius the corners) and then I'll be bending up the floor/firewall section.

We used a grinder, torch and nibbler to remove the floor and hat channel from the CJ-3a. Went with floor panels and hat channel from Jeep Panels plus in Maine. Excellent work.

a lot of old hotroders would remove the floor of their cars and move them up thus lowering the body around the frame. I always thought this would be a great way to keep a jeep body low over the frame, then just trim the over hanging parts. the benefits being that you could get the belly up and the roof down. buiding your own floor is a great opportunity to adjust all these parts.
good luck
