Body weight support
#1
As you may know I'm getting ready to replace my trunk floor. QUESTION:
Will the package tray support the weight of the rear quarters while I cut it out, or do I need to support the rear quaters weight while doing this job? Stopped because didn't look like the kind of thing to find out the hard way! Smile

I didnt support mine when i cut out my trunk pan. Do you still have your tail light panel in the car? If so dont worry about it, but if you have the tailight panel cut out I would probably tack weld in a few braces to keep things from moving on ya.

The qtrs shouldn't move..It's the rails you need to be concerned about...Make sure they are located properly (measurements you have) before welding the floor in..
