    Hello all,

    First post in the forum. Currently in the process of restoring a 77 Impala aero coupe. The underside of this car has seen better days. I have a pretty solid floor pan out of a 93 caprice to drop in, but did not cut all the way back to the rear seat floor support/body mounts and the drivers side of the 77’s mount is completely gone. Same situation with the passenger side trunk floor support and its body mount (Body to read frame horn mount).

    I have searched around for replacement parts but seems like everything else not much is made for these b-body’s. I have been able to find a part that “looks” almost identical for the g-body through ss396   But I assume it is narrower and would need modification, probably going to give this a try.

    I have had no luck finding anything ready made for the rear, has anyone had to replace these parts before; between ready made, fabricating or cutting them out of another car which seems to be the best option?

    Thanks in advance for any help!
