The body was primed, save for the areas we knew we were removing.

Yes, and the digging gets deeper...


The frame on this car had some obvious repairs over the years. We noticed that these large sections of angle iron steel were added to “fix” something… wonder what it is?



After a little cutting with a wheel on both sides of the frame…



… these giant holes were revealed on the driver’s and passenger side of the frame! Yucko.

Obviously, the correct way to repair this stuff is not to just hide it under a patch. The top side of the frame was still intact. Out comes the rusty metal.



We measured the rails and determined that 2” x 2” box channel is a perfect fit inside the stock rails. We elected to leave all 4 sides of the box tube intact to add a little more rigidity to the stock frame. The reinforcements were MIG welded in place, and ground flush.
