    Slap some JB Weld on it, it'll be good to go!

    Can’t that now be repaired these days by welding in new frame rails offered through places like LMR?

    Then even sell complete rad supports, fenders, etc.

    Been repairing ones that bad or worse for years.
    Complete rails, great idea but far n away from a do it yourself project, should be done on a frame machine.

    if you got the cash I'm pretty sure you can get a full frame from Art Morrison and change the front suspension geometry and stance of the car - I would suspect other weak areas in this car - JEGS has a good example of a Fox Body they showcase with a full frame fox with their name on it - sorry no link but can be easily found - good luck with it

    My rotten frame 88 won't be getting repaired. Lovin that Roadster shop frame. I don't think I could drop a Fox body on that though. I'd have to dig a little deeper.

    I believe I have a couple of NOS ones tucked away somewhere from my Foxbody days.

    I've been thinking a little more on this, still a work in progress though. I'll have the nose off for other work. Pulling the bumper shocks out is a cake which will give me good access to that section. My initial thoughts were to shoot wax based undercoating in. Thinking about it a bit, the heat from the engine and headers will make all of the wax settle to the bottom of the rail, no good.

    On my Lexus SC the front fenders curl under the rocker, making a perfect trap for leaves, silt and crud. Even a well preserved examples have fender rust in that spot. After repairing the fenders I ran some hose inside the fender liner and directed it at that spot. Now when i wash the car I give a blast of water into the hose to flush that area clean.

    I'm wondering if I did something similar to that frame rail section. I could flush clean on occasion and even fish in a line to reapply wax/krown. Just noodling.
