So I discovered a big hole in the passenger side floor. If you go to http://www.youtube.c...h?v=DiI_22iz3L4 you can see the hole at the end of the video. I got in contact with a random guy that has a shop around here and he saw it and said it could be fixed but that it wasn't worth it. I really hope that isn't true :( What do you guys think? I will have another video up where you can see the hole much clearer soon...

That guy may be looking at this from a re-sale stand point. Heavy rust repair is never inexpensive and lots of those body shop guys view body rot repair as very time consuming and, therefore, expensive for the customer, especially if the customer is looking to increase the value of their classic car in the hopes of selling it at a high price.

The bottom line is the decision of whether it's worth it or not to fix it lies with you the owner, not some random guy with a shop.

yeah thats true. I actually got a call from the welder today and he said the same thing. I'll shop around for more places that can fix it and take it over to one when I get it running. If anyone knows of a good quality body shop to recommend I'd appreciate the info :) I dont know these guys at all so I'm a little cautious...

Not pretty but fixable, My Nova was a lot worse, a patch panel from https://c2cfabrication.com for $60 find a friend who welds, who might even do it for a 12 pack and lunch... Or aw with my nova I used a sheet of galvanized, a butyl windshield sealer and pop rivets.. I watched the video its doable, depends on if you are restoring to showroom condition, or just water tight and drivable? Just make sure you cut back to clean metal and treat with a rust preventative & primer.. I prefer pore 25
