1974 VW Bus Floor rusted from the inside out due to some rust holes around the sunroof.
New floors from the Bus Depot. Not too bad of a fit. Holes had to be drilled where it was to be welded, over 500 holes!!!
A bit of seam sealer and some paint and it will be as good as new. All sanded & ready for primer.

I was gonna replace the hole corner, but decided to just replace what was needed. Weld just a little at a time to prevent warping.
