Wade, how easy are they to install? Is it with hog rings or are they stretched and glued?
It wasn't to bad. But remember I worked with upholstery for 11 years. Believe it or not I was able to use the original pinch rings.

Did some more work. It started with me just wanting to tear out the nasty carpet. Well things escalated quickly and I went elbow deep. Now I can get to the dents that are on the drivers side and push them out.

Got the floor all cleaned up. Need to grind a few rust spots and paint but no big issues in the back. Then I can put the new flooring in. Also today I replaced my nappy battery tray. It turned out alright. :)
