Looks like this is a candidate for the 3D printer. I found one on fleabay offered by congleton, but it looks rough.
This looks so similar... I wonder if it would be a close enough fit.

I would also check with Paul Grant. He's had a few '95s in lately.

Received some update photos today so thought I would post them. For some reason posting pics makes me a little more patient with the process.

My plan is to go with original Epsom green but I have to at least stop and wonder about color change. Grey could be interesting. So could zermat silver.

So the rust was worse than initially thought. Much worse. Out comes the floor and a new one is being fabricated. A few picks of the progress and one of my daughter expressing her displeasure when I told her the primer was not going to be painted over in pink and purple.

This is starting to remind me of a recent 95 overhaul Sarek Autowerk did here in RVA recently. Major overhaul including rust cut out and replaced, paint job, lift and new tires. A bunch of other stuff. Let's just say the final bill was astounding. But it turned out great!

Yeah. I expect about $12k by the time I am done with this round. Then engine work and seats.

The $12 includes all the brake work and suspension work too, not just the body and paint.

At least the rear looks solid. Did you check the rear seat belt anchor points?
You really should go pink & purple. It would be unique.

Yes, the back is pretty good with nothing but a couple spots of light surface rust-including under the spare tire. I checked the seat belts and they were ok. Will get the body shop to check again. I am having the entire inside done with undercoat rather than paint. I don't want to deal with it again.

Actually, would like some opinions on this. I was thinking of undercoat throughout the entire inside but maybe just the front footwells. The rest of the truck was pretty solid so paint may be nicer. Thoughts?

The shop that did my rust repair used an epoxy paint IIRC and I hit some areas with POR15.
I can find out from the shop if you want.

I've got a 95 LWB that I am really leaning towards coating the entire floor with Line-X but I don't know how that would effect the resale. While it makes sense to me, I don't want to shoot myself in the foot and devalue it. If you plan on keeping it for the foreseeable future, I'd do it just for peace of mind.

I plan on driving it as my daily driver. The plan is to sell my new audi and use the classic. I had so little rust anywhere other than the front footwells that I am think maybe I use undercoat up front and paint the rest. They are using POR15 now and will paint/undercoat over it.

Thanks for sharing your this restoration. I am wondering if you replaced your rear quarter panel seals. Mine are rough. I think britpart make new seals. I wonder if a body shop does well with these

No. I am using original quarter panels. I did source better condition upper quarters and window trim from another classic. Was going to re vinyl the originals but found some in good shape.

I had the rear window seal metal channel recreated so now it can be fully restored. Here is a picture. If anyone else wants some, let me know.

Ok. I am impressed with the custom floor plan work. From a mess to this.
