    How much do ya think it will cost to fix?? It is past the rear subframe and wheel well, its basically under the trunk.

    I'd guess about 100-150. It will have to be cut out and a new patch welded in. Depending if you want it to look like new, it will have to be grinded and re undercoated.

    No I'd just like it fixed. I plan on completely restoring the frame/body in a few years. I just cant weld right now and I need it fixed.. I'll call around. thankls for the quick response!

    I can't tell from the pic. How bad is the rust? Is there a hole?

    Chances are I would just respot weld a new rail in.

    Ok so would it be cheaper and cleaner looking If i went to a yard and chopped that piece out and had them weld it in place??

    Yea pretty much IMO.

    Is that frame piece hollow? I would assume so.

    Just make sure the new isn't to mangled from removal.

    Re: cost to repair frame rust??

    if i were doing the repair i'd cut out the bad part back to the nearest good clean metal, in straight lines with square edges. then make up a patch with the brake and weld it in. i'd prefer not to work with something hacked out of a junkyard car because in the long run it would be easier to just make a new patch.

    example of my work so you understand i'm not talking out of my ass:

    I'm with pat. I'd only cut out what needs repaired.
