Damn Pete, I though mine was bad. Yours broke in two spots! Mine only broke at the furthest one back. You put a lot of time and money, and PAINT in that car. It'* definitely worth a good fix, and make sure the other side gets inspected soon.

You're brave man. Let'* hope that third one on that side doesn't feel like giving out with the added stress. But with a < 4 mile commute you can drive very slow and hope for the best.

If only I worked at a body shop, mine would be fixed right now. lol

oh my god.

mine has a gaping HOLE behind the last 2 mounts but other two rear mounts, the ones further up are basically rust free, otherwise mine would have given way long ago. Wow. I've got to sell my car SOON before THAT happens.

Peter, what are you gonna DO about that?! Who does unibody rebuilding?

Body shops can cut and weld anything. In his case they can either cut those same sections out of a donor car and weld them in place, or mock up something else.

Unfortunately, not all shops will do a repair like that. Liability probably being the biggest reason.

John, I rememeber your pic.
