    Hello everyone just had a question hopefully someone would hopefully have an answer regarding the spot weld locations for the front floor panels. My main issue is the front area is so pitted even after grinding for hours its pretty hard to spot them. Does anyone have a general idea of where they might be towards the front and if my marked locations look correct? photos will be attached bellow

    Thanks again everyone!

    Did you try looking from underneath? When I was cutting out the floor in my scout it became very obvious where the weld were, once I started to pry out the old metal.

    Don't know the answer, but would Dykem Blue or some such stain bring them out?

    That’s what I thought too but the floor supports are so absolutely coated in some kind of sealant or gap filler it’s pretty tough to find when prying
