I just bought a 64 econoline and i'm super excited about getting it on the road. The body in general is in excellent shape, except the floors have some rot. They feel solid, but there are pinholes almost everywhere. I haven't seen floor panels available anywhere, but I'm sure many people have tackled this problem before. So what can be done? Do I have to fabricate my own panels, or can I buy panels made for another vehicle?

To my knowledge, these parts are no longer stamped... you may only find rocker panels newly fabricated. There a guy on VintAGE-VANS or EconosRUs Yahoo group (??? - Tim in KY ??? ) that may have a line on some donor panels though...

I'm kinda in the same boat with my new 64... some corners are rotted away... figured on fabbing it up from scratch where the shapes are simpler.
