lol my first truck was that bad, if not worse. the driver floor was literally gone up to the bell housing, someone welded in a big metal plate. i actually offroaded that truck for about 4 years before it fell apart.

for 600 bucks that aint bad, you can probably scrap it when youre done with it and get most that back. i just welded in a bunch of sheetmetal then braces to connect the floor with the walls and it really made the truck that much more solid.

If you wanted to fix the floorboard it wouldnt be that bad.Just cut out all the rusted metal and get some new sheetmental and rivet back in or tack weld it in.The other part is that the door?You could probaly find another one and replace or fix the hole as I described with the floor.Might have to use some body fillerto finish it off.As for the seat maybe a silverado truck seat will work if you can find one of those.
