In the process of replacing the RH Floorpan and inner floor frame rail I noticed the torque box was in bad shape. The frame rail (bottom portion) was rusted out as well. All but the torque box is fairly straightforward to repair. Anyone done the torque box. If so, would appreciate any advice. I have a welder, clamps, etc....

I've done it on a '67, and I think they will be identical (Yes I know the '67 didn't have a right hand Torque Box (I added it)). What I found to work well, was to cut about a 2" x 9" area out of the top left side of the torque box (the area that is to overlap the flange of the frame. I used a floor jack to jack the box up into place, then welded the 2"x9" piece back into place, then position the torque box, and began spot welding it in.
