Back after 10yrs

Postby mike88gt » Sun Nov 29, 2015 8:53 am

I sold my first beretta over ten years ago and i always told myself i would get another one someday. So a few months ago i picked up a 1990 GT. Not sure if anyone remembers my original beretta it was a 1988 GT with a diza body kit.

I am very impressed that you created your own floor panels from scratch and welded them in.

It looks like you over lapped the pieces of sheet metal and welded them in.

DId you put seam sealer on both sides?

Ah cool - this is the first documentation that I have ever seen of someone replacing floor pans due to rust.

I've seen the rotten door jamb replaced - but nothing of this extend.

Keep up the good work!

The car sat for a few years i believe. The jams were good and the driver side rockers were bad but not as bad as the pass side. I will keep this updated as i go.
