trunk pan rust! mini tub or replace?

Bought a 1971 nova with a significant amount of rust in the trunk pan. I already have to replace the 1/4s and outerwheel houses along with the trunk pan. I was wondering if it would be cost effective to do a mini tub or just replace the original metal.

Yeah, as long as you are cutting out that much steel put the mini tubs in there. You will be happy when it comes time for tire fitment. JR
