i have a 65 malibu that i'm wanting to tub. i need to take the trunk out any ways do to rust but i have no idea on which way is best to tub it. i thought about leaving it in there and trying to keep everything bolted up. or i was thinking about taking the whole frame out. how many bolt hold the frame to the body and is it hard to get to them?

Are you doing it for looks or performance? If your doing it for performance then what are you shooting for in the 1/4. there are tons of guys running deep 10's and high 9's without even a mintub. I'd recomend against it. But if you must lots of companys make the back 1/2 of the frame all done some even come preassembled. you just gota slice your old frame weld up the new back peice and do lots of body work and fabricating to get it to fit. Other than that its pretty straight forward
