How about fiberglass over flooring?
Original floorboard has been repaired with thin sheet metal which is rusting away .Was thinking about taking
it out cleaning up whats left of original and sheet metal. Prime and paint and just fiber glass over.
Any thoughts ?

fiberglassing a floor is by far the easiest solution, however, it will not add anything to your restoration value! In order to bring a cars value up you should always have professional patch panels welded in. It all depends on what you want to do with the car? Do you want to drive and enjoy it or restore it to enjoy but with an end result of someday selling it?

Rust will never go away,the only way to fly is cutting it out and welding in new panels,been there and tried the glass.................it is a band aid at best !
