I am getting ready to fix the passenger torque box on my 68 coupe.I am buying a 3 piece one from the local Gateway Mustang not to far from me.They said that was better than the one piece ones.anyone here have any tips or tricks? I have never done the torque box before.My driver side was fine so I only had to put floors there but passenger side seems to be rotted out.Any links to some step by step?Would appreciate any help on this before I cut it out tonight.

I don't have any real tips or tricks to offer. I used the heavy gauge Dynacorn torqueboxes. They went in pretty easy. Just some minor tweaking. I drilled all the holes in the torqueboxes for plug welding with the torqueboxes on the bench. It's a lot easier and cleaner than trying to do it with it tack welded on the car.
