Figured I'd share some trials and tribulations. New England car that had some "repairs" done in the 90s including rockers and plating the torsion crossmember. I took my time, replaced a sh$t ton of metal and added a few reinforment precautions (car will see some track time). New crossmember, new inner fenders and cowl bracket. Fixed/killed most of the rust. A lot more work left to do but pretty happy so far. Originally /6 auto, now 340 4 speed 8 3/4. Thanks!
