Default Trunk floor pan

What is involved in removing a rumble seat riser and installing a coupe trunk floor pan. Is it worth the trouble??

Actually to be more specific, in a trunk configuration is the rumble seat riser provide the trunk floor or is there another flat panel that takes its place??

I thought they used the same floor, at least that is what I understand from the vendor catalogs. Part of the reason for the riser platform is to clear the spring.

I'm interested to hear what more knowledgeable folks have to say!

The same part is used for both configurations.

the riser provides a platform for the seat cushion, but there is another panel that takes the place of the vertial pan. The rumble lid goes down between the vertial pan and the outer rear body panel then the rumble lid is opened. It isn't a major deal to remove the panel that supports the deck lid stricker and to install the new panel. Did one for a customer many years ago. I think I still have the pan I removed.

unless you have a Hot Rod frame under your body. you can NOT put a flat floor in the trunk. the rear cross member will not let that happen

After posting, and several hours of perusing vendor catalogs and various articles of ephemera I finally found the answer in Brattons catalog. Thanks every one for your input, very relieved I do not need to do a lot of sheet metal work.

take it out and, put a wood floor in it, the vendors sell a piece that will go over the frame part,
