Re: 1963 Trunk body mounting locations MIA

I ran in to this issue recently, it almost made me look for another body
I thought about cutting out patches from another body, but decided to give it a shot

This is what i came up with for this body mount, Dont need to many fancy tools, i used a socket and the large hole from a magnet and pressed em in my vise



I ended up having to cut the whole mount out and fixing the inner rocker - nothing worse than welding up a new piece only to discover more rust

I did use 16gauge for all my mounts and structural pieces.
