    Not impossible, but everything is relative. Need to drill spot welds and replace the frame rails or you can just weld up a patch panel.

    Late model restoration sells replacement rails: http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...yle-Frame-Rail
    or you can cut replacement out of a car smashed car.

    i did this on two fox bodies before, just need patience.
    The only way around, is through

    thanks
    Anything is possible. Just a matter of time and money. If they are REALLY bad, it may cost more than the car is really worth. I have seen ALL the metal from the firewall forward get replaced.
    Is it just me, or is the United States of America going further and faster downhill by the day??

    thanks for the replies. it looks like the frame rails are pretty good. the rust is above the frame rails thanks.
