Hey Jay, Its great that you want to save this car, and you can do it! It might be pricey, but in the long run if you become familiar with putting out some of the legwork yourself.. it will turn out to be much more rewarding in the end. I priced Auto Rust Technicians for a frame repair kit on the rear of my 61 Phoenix... I'd be spending over a grand ..and thats not including installation! Instead, i put the money towards a welder, air compressor, and paint/sandblast supplies (and had extra leftover to spare). Working on a frame will be much harder than regular sheet metal, but it can be achieved with someone who is a good metal fabricator. Im not the best... and what i cannot do i at least try or practice on scrap.. or take it to a friend who knows ;). Good luck on your restoration... and if you ever need inspiration, i'll show you my 57 firesweep project (lol). Jessica Hendricks
