Has anyone contracted to have frame boxing made.
I have a couple of frames and it seems the only
difference is the U channel is duplicated on the
inside of the frame between the front and rear tire area. I wonder if Ground Up Restorations or any members might be able to produce and sell such a product. It seems like you could just bend up the steel. Of course you would need to change the tranny mount and the fuel and brake lines.
your correct with your idea. the rust free conv frames are hard to find. it seems logical that someone would manufacture these braces so they could be installed on standard frames. i would order a few sets of them. tom
I sent an invitation to Goodmark. I offered to cut
mine out, send then just the inner part, lat them fab the inner support, weld them on, and post them to this site giving them all the glory but no responce. Maybe I need to call them. Anybody have a contact at Goodmark?

Maybe the people to contact is CARS instead of Goodmark. They sell Chevelle stuff as well.
Pat, it depends on how bad your frame is rotted. It is possible to get them welded, but it may cost more to repair than to replace it with one from a donor car.
There is an automotive welder in Oreland that has done both of my cars. CSE, 123 Montgomery Ave, Oreland PA 19075, 215.885.5570. Owners name is Bill Sherwood. Please tell him I sent you. Maybe he'll cut me a break when I pick up my Chevelle.
Any questions, e-mail me.
