I have visited several web sites that describe replacing the inner rocker panel and front torque box in a 65-66 convertible.

These sites install the inner rocker panel first and then the torque box.

This is beginning to seem impossible. Once the inner rocker panel is in place, I do not see how to get the torque box in place with out hacking up the frame rail or the torque box itself.

I am to the point that I will assemble the two pieces and intall them together.

Am I missing something?

You'll have to split the box in 2 to get it in there. Drill out the spot welds and it comes apart. Makes the job easier.

I just installed a front box in my 67. I can't imagine why in the world they weld them together at the factory. Everybody I've heard of had to "unweld" theirs before it could be installed. Mine was no exception. Very annoying, but it wasn't that bad to put in one half at a time.
