Man that sucks that the frame rails are so bad. I say fix it. I'm with the other comments though about fixing that before paint so you don't have to worry about the paint getting damaged.

i guess i would have to see it in person but if their is weldable steel on that front rail could just cut out and weld some steel in. Then that frame section that goes under the floor their is only 30 dollars or so. Too hard for me to see how bad it is by the pictures.

yeah, i decided im going to use a angle grinder with a steel brush on it and remove the surface rust since the floor pans are good, them cut out parts of the frame rail and patch it. theres just a couple areas, then im going weld the frame rail back onto the floor pan, it was coming off a bit. this should be done in the next 2 weeks.

so it seems when my dad attempted to remove the broken bolt from the block he drilled it offcenter pretty bad. took it to a shop and they wanted to 500 bucks to strip the block tap it, put insert, change piston rings and clean all of it, he claims it needs to be completely cleaned to do it.

now there is a 95 mustang 5.0 convertable that was vandalized and he is parting it out, the engine as 75k miles on it an is all there.
i could probably get the engine for 150-200$ what will i need to make this work with my 67 with a c4? i know ill need a 50oz balance. i want it to be carbed.

i will also call around see if i could get a cheaper quote.

got my block back today, i tried turning the engine to get it to TDC but it seems to hit a wall halfway there, the second piston is at the top and the first is all te way at the bottom, is it just hard to turn further or is there something i have to do?
