Just looking advice. I assume most are installed with blind rivets. Do you use sealant on the edges? Best gauge? Mounting seats? Anything helps.

I'm gonna start mine soon also. Not gonna use rivets unless it's to set the pan pieces in to weld, which is how I'm planning it. Hopefully my wirewelding will be without holes, but if not, there's a 2-part black alum. putty that dries super hard. We use it at work to fill in papercuts in mail sorters (USPS repair site) and let me tell you, it's GOOD STUFF! Need a grinder (or heavy disk paper) to smooth it. Just my 2C's. If I can start it soon, I'll post it, but it may be a month before I start.

You must have some tough mail sorters. I just use Band-aids for paper cuts. :)

I'm thinking of replacing most of the floor pan, one big-O piece of aluminum (or smaller pieces equalling one big piece). No more rust and saves weight.

Thanks for the putty idea. Can you give me a brand name that works best?

Well, GT-Freak, when a sorter gets hit with that amount (on average 100K letters), that's alot of paper cuts! I'll check in my old garage, where my wife lives, and get the name to ya Sunday.
