A aquired my Z28 long ago. It was a washed up drag car sold to a kid that intended to turn it into a bomber car. I traded a TBI 350 engine for the shell with front sheet metal and front subframe. Anyway, there was rust in the rear quarter and valance. I could tell from the brazing that it had been hit, in that corner, long ago. I finally put the '50 Coupe back on it's frame and put the Camaro on the rotisserie. It looks like the body shop torched out the last foot of the rear frame rail and poorly grafted on another piece. The rest of the rail is solid. Replacing the whole rail looks like a complete PITA. Would it be acceptable to cut this back past the buckling and section the rail? Also I noticed the brackets along the floor board. On my Corvettes these support an exhaust heat shield. Are these reproduced?. If not anyone have a pic so I can duplicate some.I will be running headers so maybe they will be in the wrong place. Anyone know?
