in my 67 i have rust on both sides of the frame rails up where the bumper brackets attach. i have to cut this out and weld back some new stuff. anyone else ever have this problem? how did you deal with it? what gage metal did you use to patch it if so? is that something you can MIG weld? what did you use to cut it out? i'm new at all this heavy repair so any advice will be greatly appreciated.

the rust doesn't warrant replacing the whole rail so i guess i'm lucky, after what the car has been through and where its been.

thanks for the advice. i did take a large socket wrench to the rail, smacking both sides up and down the entire length. luckily, everything is solid, except for that first ten inches or so. its completely gone.


so whats best to cut with? die grinder, air chisel?
