Hey guys. I've got a lot done on the car. The engine's out, as well as the transmission. Most of the interior, as well as the dash and most other things that will come off. Now it’s time to get down to the rust. I removed one of the quarter panels. Now it’s time to do what I’ve been dreading. Has anyone here ever removed and replaced a front frame rail? I'm looking for some feed back in how anyone’s done that. Thanks guys -John
I hope you don't mind, but I had to edit your post just to try to figure out what you were asking. And I'm sorry, but I'm no help. This seems like it would be really tough without a frame jig. However, I'm no expert.

Hey guys- punctuation marks (commas and periods) don't cost any extra around here so feel free to use them as appropriate.

I am glad I am not the only one that had to take a moment to translate.

I am going to be going through the same process as well, and then some. Basically everything below the top of the wheelhouses is shot on my car. This is my first restoration attempt and can’t provide a lot of help either.

I agree on Jo Daddy’s Garage. I plan to go through all of his Mustang Retoration videos. They may not show you everything you need to know or teach you the skills needed to tackle it, but he does a great job of getting you to think things through and different ways to address issues you will face.

Check out some of the build threads. Here's a link to one of them, https://forums.vintage-mustang.com/build-forum/904817-project-tetanus-66-coupes-journey.html



There's also a forum member @lowlyslows who is documenting his build on youtube. He's done frame rail work in his vids, here's the link to his channel.
