No doubt, it sucks, it feels like there is no end and the hits just keep on coming!
Your torque boxes are located correctly. Will take some hammering and trimming to get them to fit correctly. I used the same ones.Hi all, I’m hoping someone can help me with a few questions. Is this the way the front and rear torque boxes go?:
Front Driver’s side:
Rear Driver’s side:
I’m also assuming they go on the bottom of the floor pan and not the top (inside the car). Thank you in advance!
Thanks John! Good point - I wasn’t even thinking about the spoiler - crap! I’m thinking this lid isn’t original to my car - it was blue under the orange. My car was originally metallic gold. It also originally came with a go wing. Now I’m wondering if this lid is even the correct one for a go wing - with the under structure. I have no idea what it’s supposed to look like. If someone could post a few pics on here that would be much appreciated!!!That stinks!
Hope you are following Drs orders. Your future years will remind you if you dont let things get proper. Hope you get healed up!
Do your plans include a spoiler to the trunk? If so, make sure you get a 71 or early 72 lid if you replace it, as 71 was the only year with the under-structure formed to allow the proper attachment points.
If it was me, I'd take the time to cut out & weld in some metal. You have enough skill based on what I've seen to make it turn out great!
Good luck, whatever you decide.
They sell the spoiler brackets reproduction.Thanks again John! My lid appears correct. I missing those black brackets though.
