I'm replacing floor pans in 66 Impala and the replacement pans are coated in EDP. Can I pop rivet? If I weld, do I need to remove EDP surface before weld? Does that ruin the coating? Thanks in advance!!
Ahh, ok. It's funny, doing this as teenager helping friends out with cars, we'd pop rivet everything!! Now with the internet I can learn all the reasons as to why that's wrong, lol
Ok, grind, prep, and weld.
Any coating I should put in after everything is welded and grinded smooth?

Here's what I did when I replaced the floor of my 68. Stitch weld in the pans like Dave said then I applied Evercoats waterproof Everglass Kevlar reinforced filler in all the seams (both inside and under seams). Then rollered on a coat of Nason Epoxy Primer. That stuff is hard as rock when dry. Scuff sanded the epoxy after a couple of days and sprayed semi gloss black over top the Epoxy. Came out perfect and I don't think I will ever have another issue with rusting floor pans again.
