I don't know what your replacement floor panels look like but if they're like the more common to find PV ones that don't have the sides of the inner sill sections then I reckon you need to source the inner sill repair parts too. The inner sills look like they need help - I could be wrong but those pictures show rust damage that looks suspiciously like there will be more trouble ahead...

Knowing how expensive having this work done by others perhaps ask a mobile welder to have a look and give you an idea of cost. Or perhaps it is time to learn welding!

Great to think of an Amazon driving around Stannington. From 1968 to 1984 I visited family who lived in the Stannington Church vicarage.

If it should be done proper it will be expensive.
The inner sills will be corroded too. Remove the round black caps made of plastic and have a closer look. The frame rails will be thin by corrsion too.
Every part is available by most of the well known dealer.
have a closer look to the windscreen frame too!!
The water did found a way into the car, first find this way.

good luck, Kay

There's good news here - doesn't look like it's been bodged in the past. The repairs are much more challenging when someone's been putting MoT standard patches all over everything.

This looks a lot better than mine did. The worst of it is drilling out the spot welds. Its all downhill from there if you source well made replacement pans. Only cost will be $400-500 dollars for a decent mig welder.

The floor pans are good pressings from Brookhouse, get the full pressings as the part repairs are poor in comparison.

You will also very highly require chassis repairs and at inner sill repairs if not more.
