1500 'S' floor pan 01/09/2013

First time this has ever been apart.

Clean and original paint on the hand brake. I will retain this as is.

Original tar stuck to the pan.

You can see where I had to cut the pan to make a repair to the clutch tube a few years ago. This will be re-cut and welded back so it's spot on before paint.

Not a bad floor pan considering it's 49 years old.
Surface rust was about what I expected based on the rust discovered below the rear window. Not major but something to deal with.
Next step now the pan is stripped down is to get a quote on chemical cleaning and de-rusting then I can attack the dents and dings etc.
