Track damage repaired . Ways to fix or replace
My 89 has damage from being launched at the track its been welded back already . I've been thinking of replacing the whole rear section with aluminum and putting rear frame rails . I can't seem to find a rear section already made and ready to buy if somone knows anyone that sells such a thing mind sharing with me where . Also any tips on strengthening what's already there I've thought of getting a plate or more roll cage put in I've only seen pics of it done once . .
Hope I didn't cause confusion with this post .

Are you talking about where the upper control arms attach to?

Battle boxes

I'm talking about if you look from I side the car right by where my roll bars connects Im guessing yes where the control arm would be mounted .

Battle boxes looks like exactly what I'm looking for . How about aluminum floor pans and . Roll cage parts to strengthen the rear . I just saw a pic where there was a bar going across the bottom of the floor right where it rises and the bottom of the seats would go . Say if you where to sit in the back right behind your calf .

Plenty of stuff out there, just start searching the net.
It'll surprise you what some of the is............

Aluminum floor pans is gonna be kinda rough without committing to a full-on chassis car. A good portion of the strength of the unibody comes from the floor pan tying everything together, even with a cage.

I've searched havnt came accross any floor pieces for a fox .

I want to make it stronger and lighter and still be a street car it throws me because I get the sense the more strength mods I do the more weight ill be adding
