Default Underside of the Floorpan?

Hi all,

Just installed an HKS dual system today, and while underneath a friend pointed out the floorpan of the car to me, looking like it has some rather large dents in it, on both sides. To be clear this is the large sections of the floor that run the length of the sill, just inside of the pinch weld area.

We were unsure if it's damage from improper jacking previously in it's life, or perhaps an OEM moulding, with a bit of damage thrown in.

Does anyone have a nice clear shot of the underside of their floorpan? I'll get a shot of mine tomorrow.

Sounds like jack damage, but can't be sure without pics. Maybe you can bang them out with a rubber or wooden mallet from inside the car?

^^^ This or....

If you've never noticed it before you raised the car, why bother doing anything? Honestly, unless something's leaking, bent, or scraping, affecting the car's performance, I don't care what it looks like when I can't see it. Just IMO.

True, it's a good point, it just irks me to see stuff like that, where somethings not right.

It just looks like the floor pan area, so nothing else is in that area that I know of. Also beating it out might bring in more issues, work hardening and cracking the sheet.

I'm too **** to leave something like that alone, and so are you.

Yeah, maybe... but honestly, it's one of those things that only when yer conscious of the issue does it bother you. Something like that seems easily forgettable. Hahahaha. But yer right.... it'd probably drive me nuts.
