Got the passenger side of the rear rebuilt. It originally had a stupid S shaped lower bar and I had no clue how to build a floor around that. Got to break out the bender for the first time in a while. I miss bending and welding simple stuff lol. Next I need to mirror it on the driver side



Cut out everything and sanded it flat and removed the primer

Installed the straight lower bar and took some measurements for the top tube. Used Bendtech to tell me where to set it up in the die. I coulda eyeballed this but I wanted to tuck it up as close to the trunk brace as possible

Installed a brace and welded it all

Old vs new. Should be much easier to tin with some scalloped rivet strips
