He was never going to use the original type of seats, seat brackets or cross brackets/braces from the beginning. He was not concerned with the stock seat mounts with the custom seats and mounts he is going to use. He laid the seat bracket back on to see how it fit after his weld in. The stock bracket is raised up over an inch the way he welded it in.
But, he did some looking and it appears that if you left the bracket/brace in place, cut the rotted floor board out and then slipped the mustang panel in under the bracket then welded it to the bracket, you should be able to form the panel to meet the existing floor on the sides.
There are pictures below.

I am going to be doing this on my Ranchero thanks to this thread.

I bought my panels from CJ Pony Parts.

http://www.cjponyparts.com/XFLP1L/p/XFLP1L/?utm_source=Pony&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=OrderConfirmation&lac_guid=550ffb38-4112-e611-be9f-2c59e547f8d7

I bought the premium since they have a bit more material at the rear. And they are 19 gauge, the other ones didn't have a gauge listed. Might be overkill and most who have experience probably won't need the extra material but I figured I better get as big a piece as possible. Not sure if it was worth the extra $30 or not though. I bought them as a pair, free shipping. Free shipping from them either way you buy.
They also sell the under the seat part mentioned above somewhere, I may try those or just see what I can make with some metal I have. At $30 something each side though I am leaning towards making patches instead.

I am going to be doing it with the seat bracket still on the car. Mine needs repaired on the inner rear seat bolt hole areas, both sides, but I am not a welder and so I want to leave as much structural as I can intact. I can see how that may make part of this harder, but at least I won't have to worry about the bracket being wrong. That part holds the seats and thus the people, so it needs to be solid. I plan on removing the floor pans, fixing the brackets, then doing the new pans. I weigh in at about 305, so I am a bit concerned.

This will be a real learning experience. I've done a very little welding in a one evening class where we had to share the welder.

I will post in my project thread when I start. Going to be a bit, I forgot I am going to need to come up with an extension cord for the welder since my Ranchero is too far from an outlet. I will probably have to make one out of Romex, just don't tell anyone. Tongue
I hadn't planned on needing to use the welder when I took the front end apart. Unhappy
But at  least it is far enough from the house to avoid burning it down. LOL

Thanks,
Russ

Some of those are the pics I took when I hung out with Jimmy here locally at his shop.
 
Those pans fit PERFECT!
 
IF you want to use the original seats you will have to leave the cross brace in place or at least after you cut out the rust put a tack weld to hold it in place on the tranny tunnel.
from the picture you can see the brace sits higher on the tranny tunnel.
Just means a little less trimming excess off the mustang pan to get it to sit lower like the torino.
 
Personally I was looking and you could cut the brace then weld it back in. just remember that his seats will sit HIGHER because the floor is higher as seen by the space between the brace and the tunnel.
 
As for the rear... YES, use the right pan on the left and left pan on the right to fit in our cars with a close contour.
Still the same admin/moderator REGUL8R just needed a 2nd account for more picture space.
