'64 CS Floor Pans


http://www.goldenleafautomotive.com/main.php

Order '64 Impala floor pans, braces, trunk pan, etc.

Golden Leaf is Canadian and has a distribution network in Canada. I haven't used them yet, but it is probably the way I'd want go (better than ordering huge parts from the US.

Maybe someone else has a better parts supplier? I'd be interested to know also.

I am now in the process of fixing up my '64 CS vert. There is the usual rust on the 1/4s and substantiaal rust in the floors. Where can I find the right floor pans and braces. Pictures attached. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Golden leaf is good. Dynacorn in the US is the same company. They sell a three types (all EBD coated black from across the pond), Patch panel single floor pans, half sides or a full one piece pan. I've seen the full one piece and helped install in a 64 Impala vert and the fit and quality was excellent. Braces all worked good too but the package was a pile of dough to bring to Winnipeg. Also available is a bare steel version. Haven't seen or worked with one but it's US made and looks quality. Maybe someone that's fit one can chime in.

The quarters will be a problem to buy, there are some reproduction lower quaters but i was told they're not good quality.
Perhaps need to be hand made?

63 64 are pretty easy to bend up, they have a gentle curve along the bottom, its the inner quarter and wheel well that have to be right on. ive used the uncoated panels and i prefer them but i coat them with weld through zinc primer, since you have to scuff the coating anyway it makes no sense to have it on, and take the time to work it.

 Yes I was thinking of bending up my own. Should be fun but i want to do a good job of it and buy an english wheel and shrinker stretcher.

 I think a Chevy wheel well can be bought

Dyacorn parts are great for sure. Don't even bother trying to find repro quarters. If you do they will be horribly made-YOU can make better PATCHES yourself. Don't replace any more than you have to and DO NOT be afraid to make patches out of more than one piece of metal-we all aren't Jesse James here. You DO NOT need an english wheel, shrinker stretcher or any other fancy tools. Use the edge of your bench, a soft bag, a hammer and dolly, whatever-but you can form your own patches to fix that minimal rust. Only replace the rust not the whole panel-I think that is the biggest mistake guys make. Notice how easy it is to cut parts off but its a lot harder to weld them back on and make them fit. I personally would just make patches for the floors, replace the front floor supports with repros (Chevy), and patch the quarters myself. Much better plan.

Plus one!

The one thing to add might be, make sure you do get all the soft areas. You don't want to do more patching years down the road when the area that looked good starts to bubble.

I agree with above, it would be great to see progress on Bonne's repairs.
In my case my whole quarter is pretty rusted from previous bad repair which caused water to leak in the trunk and rust the trunk floor also.
Ill watch this thread closely, very interesting
