    So I was going to do my carpet but I pulled up the old vinyl to find a real mess. My floor boards are starting to rot through so I'm going to have to cut and weld in patch panels. I know they don't sell floor pans for our trucks so I'm going to have to fab my own.

    I was going to pick up some 16 gauge sheet metal and probably forgo running beads unless I can find someone to do it for me. I've also got a buddy with a welder who should be able to help me in that regard.
    I guess my question is anyone have a link to a good tutorial or any advise? I've never done any body work before and I'm a little nervous to start cutting.

    Um that’s for a RN30 pickup, not the RN20 hilux. I’m sure they’re similar enough though that you could still use most of it and splice in the sections you need

    No. But I love the full steel bed with the headache rack. Probably cost $$$$$ to get it shipped to the U.S.

    PhotoPictureResizer_190515_180619422_crop_4032x2923.jpg Floor pans came in. They look like a perfect fit for my RN20. When I've got some time to take the truck down I'll gut it, cut out the old pans and install these.

    Those look great. Update us on how they look once they are installed.

    I went with the vendor Liquidhandwash found on ebay who is in Australia. I ended up paying $260 USD for both panels shipped and they arrived in about a week.
