I need to replace the passengers side front floor pan and rocker panel on my 52 Ford F1. What sequence of replacement is best? Any tips on how to replace these items?

Do floor first leaving rocker to hold door opening correct & then rocker is how I did mine. Worked out great.

brace it from front to back leaving the door on to get your gap then remove it for ease of working the corners I did a 51 that someone didn't brace wound up cutting the jamb on the back edge the cab was finished on the inside lots of work

Major work like rockers and floor pan should be done with the body on the chassis to make sure gaps and fit are right. As mentioned above, just being a little bit off can cause major problems.

From what I've seen and heard, expect to need to do some metalworking to make the new piece work. Saw one that was 1/2" different where it joined the firewall section.
