Look Ma, no floor!  Amazing how little structure there is to a unibody.  Just think what it would be like, doing this to a convertible........... 

 

Took the opportunity to replace the tranny mount I had on hand since 2015 last night.  Couldn’t ask for better access.  Still had to drop the exhaust on one side.  Old mount kinda soft but all in one piece, not cracked or anything.  I see Classic Industries still lists the mounts, so must be still available.  Made by Imperial Services I believe......

Got half the floor pealed back – before and in-work pics attached.............  Held the new panel into the front door way and it looks like it will fit thru in one piece afterall............

 

Underneath the car was heavily factory undercoated.  The floor rotted from the inside...........

Got my work cut out for me.........  ; )  Somehow I imagined this being stamped in America - nope - made in Taiwan.  Sure is light - can pick up the panel with a gloved finger in two drain holes...........  20 gage (.036)

Did make new bench seat brkts mounts last night, for 3" more leg room.  With them set at the max 2" back OEM setting, that's a possible 5" back from the fwd most OEM setting.  All bolted to the adjusting sliders and will try the bench seat in the wagon tonight if we get a break the rain.  First real rain we have had in months - that's saying something for Seattle...........

There used to be several articles online at Mopar Action with floor replacement tips. Maybe not now, so take a look at this article. 1967 Plymouth, but still a B-body.
http://www.hotrod.com/articles/1967-plymouth-belvedere-how-to-replace-the-floor-in-a-classic-mopar/

Not sure about the seat question. The "keep it simple" rule leans toward rebuilding the bench seat. But I'm sure adding bucket is doable with enough custom fab.

Thanks.
