    Arguably $200 (before shipping) really isn't that bad for repro floor pans. I've looked at their site before. Probably best course of action is to get the front bench out, and finish removing the flooring material and seeing the condition of the rear floor pans. The bench area is solid, and the rear floor seems to have held up, but arguably the car needs gutted first to determine how much floor needs to be sectioned out for repair.

    All in due time though. At least there's still aftermarket support for this stuff. The other fun specific part I know I'll have to order up at some point will be the gas tank. Specific to Comet compared to the Falcon for this year because the trunk is longer, so it costs a bit more. Oh well, that's the way it is.

    Yeah, there's a Comet repro site that has them for roughly $300 a unit.

    May want to check in with CJ Pony Parts. They usually are not cheap but they do have that part for about $225. Didn't check on shipping for it so may be about what you quoted. Other than them, the prices seem to be all over the map!

    the other thing with using flat sheet stock is it tends to flex a lot. The stock floors usually have ribs and bends to keep that from happening. Trying to match flat metal to the curves isn't fun, be easier to get the donor pans and cut and splice as appropriate.
