Hi KO217
Not all 6V bug floor pans are quite the same, although they can be converted. For instance seat belt mounting holes didnít come until later.
The way the Type 3 (Country Buggy) pedal assembly bolts into the tunnel is different, the earlier ones didnít have nuts welded inside the tunnel on both sides, only on one, but they can be added.
The clutch cable tube on the early ones comes to the right side, itís on the left on the CB. You canít easily just move the hook across on the pedal, you canít get the pedal assembly to go back in the hole if you do that. You canít just move the tube to the other side, youíre flat out seeing it, let alone cutting and welding it. You have to open up the top of the tunnel, move the tube, and weld up again.
Best if you can find a later model pan with all the bits in the right place.
Then youíll have to remove all trace of the heater control tubes to make it look like a CB chassis, easy enough.
You can get the HD floor pan halves, just a matter of money, well spent I think. You can also get the Napoleonís hat, (curved bit at the front) front horn and front bottom plate too. Call some of the advertisers on this forum. Might be better to repair your old one?

Good to hear of another resto being started. Good luck, stick with it.
Cheers
