Hi there, anyone can recommend someone that can do go metal flooring work?

I have a friend that needs to have the entire flooring redone as the previous owner did a poor job replacing it as well as the lower firewall area needs to also be addressed. He is looking for something reasonable i.e. not skimping on quality but not wanting to spend a ridiculous amount.

Feel free to whatsapp (494-4975), message here or PM me.

Still looking for someone to handle some stuff. I don't mind if it takes some time (month or two) once he is working on it and does a quality job.

I have some firewall patchwork, note the chassis number is not located in the vicinity, front flooring from a battery leaking, trunk pockets and small areas like the lower edge of the doors and an old school metal sunroof.

Have this and some small stuff to get done on the ole GTiR as well so please send me some recommendations as I want to try and enjoy these cars before my knees give out!

Please note I am not looking for someone that can filler well but someone that can cut/shape and replace metal pieces and require minimum filler work.

second option
Buy the TIG and learn
DO NOT buy a cheap flux-core welder...you will frustrate yourself burning through panels. Get a gas MIG or TIG if you can afford it
TBH the men who can do decent old school patchwork are a dying breed
Also invest in good tools:
array of dollies
Ball peen hammers
Spot-weld drill bits
Panel cutters
Various vise-grip style clamps
SAFETY GEAR ...........do NOT fuckaround with angle grinders and panel cutters without wearing heavy clothing and a full face shield. A shattered cutting disc can literally kill you
