As others have said, you'll need a firm stand to work on the floors and the rockers.

When I started I dismantled everything and then put the car on a rotisserie I built and removed all the paint and stuff from the car. It made it easier to get too everything by spinning the car. The only bad part of the car was the driver's floor that was partly rusted through. The rest of the frame is in good condition. Depending on the condition of your car putting it on a rotisserie first may not be an option.

I built a rolling stand that I put the body on while I worked on fixing the drivers floor pan and the front bumper mounts and front driver fender. It helped keep everything at a relative level position. And I could move it around to making it easier to work on.

I just this weekend welded in the floor pan I built and took the body off the stand and mounted it on the rotisserie again. Makes welding and grinding on the bottom easier when it is in a vertical plane.
