You got that right, probably the most I was ever scared when it happened to my son with me watching. It hung in his shirt tail and he almost didn't get it shut off. Left a good mark on his belly.

She's coming along nice Joey, great job on that hinge.

Used to work with some crazy tank welders. They would sneak up behind each other and light their shirt tails with a torch just for fun.

So when you drive with the tailgate down, you can flip down the license plate and stay legal.

I like the progress you've made on it so far.

I've been playing with these early Broncos since I was a teen.

The driver floorpan is kind of a pain to replace, but it looks like you're already tracing out the cut lines in about the right place. I like to remove the pedal swingset just to get it all out of the way (reduces the amount of cussing)

Any of the Bronco houses will have the pans. The channel may be a bit rough under the pan. That is a little more tricky to replace, I think you'll do fine with it.
