Hey,

I ripped up the carpet, took out all the mounts, seats, all that stuff to see what was under the floor. Rust. Go fig. Anyways, under the drivers feet is this ... stuff that covers a huge patch of rust. It kinda feels like an abrasive tape, but is VERY solid. I have seen this stuff before, but for the life of me cannot remember what it is.

Specifically reffering to the white-ish colored stuff.

Any thoughts would be great!

I'm not sure what itis called but I think it is a type of fiberglass with some epoxy chemical in it. All you do it get it wet put it in place like a blanket and let it dry. Hard as a rock. It is called an EWARP in the navy. We use it for patching pipes. I will see what I can find out.

If you're trying to get it up, try using dry ice to make it more brittle.

That stuff IS nasty to remove. They put it in Fox-body Mustangs, in the rear around where the control arms attach to the body. One of my friends spent the better part of a weekend trying to remove it with a high-speed sander. I've never tried it, but it seems like kerosene would at least loosen it a little. It'll remove Ziebart undercoatings easily enough, but I don't know about that sound-deadening chit Ford uses.

EDIT: you guys are nasty. :histerica

Oddly, after showing it to my wife (who works at Canadian Tire, for those of you who know what that is...)... she tells me 'Oh, that's Fibreglass for boats and cars. Just add resign sealer and it makes (as said above) the flexible sheet dry and harden like nothing else.'

Who knew? So, I think I will patch all my holes in the floor with it...

On another note, does anybody have a spray in bed liner for a floor instead of carpet? Just curious how that would turn out with the way the metal floor is ... corrugated.

Thanks for all the info boys!

BBB

Try your hammer on the loose areas and try to get a scraper under it. What are you going to do to the flor once you get it off ?

I can't see from here, but it could also be kitty hair or Stuff-it, which is long strand fiberglass. Man that stuff dries so hard it's almost structural.

It's saved many a $50.00 beater car for me over the years.

If you're considering the expense of a spray in bed liner, I would take the time and cut out all the rust and weld in new floor panels. Take the time and do it right - or you'll be doing it again in sooner than you want.

Just my $0.02

People that cover their floor in buckets of that fibre glass stuff should be shot. That is a lot of work to remove it, if they prepped the steel propperly. If I were you, unless there was a really good reason to remove it, just leave it.

I too have heard of crushing dry ice, spreading it around on it, and smacking it with a hammer to get it off once it is cold and brittle.
