    I just welded it together and to the rest of the subframe sections.
    I think this should be strong enough and will not rot out any time soon!

    Looks like you're where I need to be with the rust repairs. Also looks like your seatbelt was held in by the carpet, too.... /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif
    Any other pics of what you're doing? I've been planning the same type of repair; would be nice to see a few in-work shots to better visualize what I want to do.

    Yeah, I have a ton of pictures, some of which are in the members rides area, look under my name. I also have others that are not on the members rides section. If you want them let me know, I can e-mail you them.

    I did something simular for my tail pan that was rusted out. Used C channel. I have thought about adding a cross bar at the same location your putting that one in. Tied into the roll cage.
