The way Peter did this.. that'* quite a bit more than $500 US or CAD. Great job on it. that should keep it good and strong for years to come.

One pic was of the passenger side and a little rust. Are you fixing that as well?

well the more I think about it as a work on it, the more I think the price might go up... unfortunatly I have a bad history of giving Bad estimates on the price of anything. ( honestly dont know what a total cost for this type of ob would be

I think you're seeing it strangely. It'* actually that they're welding from beneath the car, and it'* jacked up above everyone.
acctually it is upsidedown
Interesting.

There some rust by the edge of the fender...maybe the drip edge..

Did you do both sides or just one?..Now I'm confused.

If your talking where the fender bolts at the bottom, thats just surface rust and I have not done anything with it, as that is NEW metal that I had to replace when I did all the body work on the car, as that whole tab was rusted right off the car.

no, Im sure othres can drop a sub frame, and the guy that did all the patch work does still work here although I dont know for how long (he'* been unhappy for awhile)

For you to get it done here, it would be well beyond an favous "lii see what I can do" sorta thing... this would have to be a full work order by the book sorta deal.
