This project is a little bit of a jigsaw puzzle, as the trunk floor will be replaced as well. The wheel tubs were welded together, and then attached to the inner structure of the car, but not attached to the trunk floor.

We obtained a replacement trunk floor from AMD, but this piece is designed for a 1970 Chevelle and not a Buick Skylark or GS. The difference is in the back part of the floor where it attaches to the floor structure of the Buick, as they are simply different shapes. However, our crew was confident we could install the floor without it looking like it had ever been repaired.

The trick was to remove part of the floor section where it flattened out in the back and adapted to meet the angled trunk floor section of the Buick.
