    time for the driver side sill....starting with the front end... thought it would have been a small patch but by the time i found clean metal it got bigger. then the rear of the sill (didnt see any rust but it needed straightening and i suspected a patch over rust)

    wow that is a pretty basic test but i would imagine it would give you all the info you need. as per my comment to Hurmeez^ the easiest way at this point would be 2 small support brackets further back welded to the chassis cheers man

    i did think that but it would have to come off the spit...motor and box back in ...cut mounts to fit further back and weld them up...(still an option as i want them back in at somepoint to do the tunnel and a few other things. or i could make 2 small support back and weld them to the chassis further back ....now

    the rust issue wasn't as bad as i thought it would be.....there were no surprises at all... not bad for a car that was destined for scrap yard
