You have strengthened my resolve to not go below the existing floor! A[n un]common modification to VWs is to move the front suspension beam forward 8" to lengthen the wheelbase. At 8" the steering gearbox still fits under an uncut hood. That's a space that's 8x24" at the lowest point in the car.

It looks like you will be sealing together aluminum, steel and wood. What do you think of two layers of burlap in Rhinoliner as an undercoat?
