Larry:  You have my sympathy.  While I have never tried to replace a rusted 
out floor pan, I know from working with carpeting that the Bugeyes are wider 
under the seats than the Mark IV.  Recollection has it at about 3" wider per 
side.  I have easy access to a Mark III so here goes.  The passenger side 
just behind the crossmember is 20" metal to metal on the sides  By the time 
you reach the back of the seat area it is 21-1/2" metal to metal.  I think 
that if your measurements are close to mine you can use a Mark III,  If not, 
a Mark II might work just dandy.
