65 coupe frame rail rot- HELP ME!!!
Ive got a 65 coupe im restoring. ive rain into a few problems but the guy i bought it from replaced some of the floor pans, the drive shaft, the rear axle, the rear suspension and springs, and the frame rails. now im working on the front and the front frame rails have some bad rust. one part theres 2 4' x 2' holes and on another part theres a patch welded on that was done half assed and its rotting away too. im only 14 so i dont have a job so im limited on money. should i just save up and pay for them to be replaced or should me and my dad just weld in new patches ourselves. i dont have any pictures. i will soon. The bad patch repair is in the middle of the lower section, and the holes are on the front section where the side frame attatches to sideways peice holding the left and right rails together. im going to be pulling the engine to replace the oil pan, check the compression, and clean it up. im wondering if i should pay for them to be fixed, patch them with my dad, or just leave them until later on. thanks to anyone with anything they have to say
