Re: 1963 Trunk body mounting locations MIA
These areas will need to either be made or if you have any of these cars in a local salvage yard you may be able to cut the area out of another car and weld into yours. These type of repairs take some fabrication skills and are usually not for the first time builder.
The skill required is understood. I will not be tackling this myself. My cousin has a custom fabrication company but has not done a job like this yet hence my questions on how to get access to the area, not necessarily how to fix it once there.
Thanks for the idea of sourcing the pieces from a salvaged car. I'm afraid if I find one in the area it will be as bad or worse then mine. There is also a lot of undercoating on the car which makes cleaning up for welding more work.
