funny you mention prestige thunderbird... my bird is actually there right now, was going to have some body work done. but the frame is more important, they said they have a welder, but he probably wont want to fix the frame. looking for a more Fabrication oriented shop.
thanks

With the body off its not a difficult repair. Back in the day I had a '72 full size Ford that the frame rotted at that exact spot. I had a local guy weld it up and the car was as solid as a rock, lasted me many more years as my college car.
