Thanks for the response. Does the floor pan have to be removed before the cut (in the car I want to keep) ? That is, do I have to remove all the spot welds prior to making the cut into the my 74 and then cut the rockers and A-pillars? Also, what should I be looking at cost wise or time in hours to pay a good shop to weld the new clip on?
I plan to remove everything and drill out all the spot welds (but a few) prior to giving the car to the shop
