PostSubject: REAR FRAME RAILS   Mon 23 Feb - 12:12

Hello, I am in the finishing of my restore and have to replace both rear frames rails to the foward edge of trunk. On my factory rails there are some holes drilled with a few threaded about 20 inches in front of the leaf spring mount. Can somebody look at there car and tell me what goes there? I am guessing something related to the exhaust. The new frame rails I have don't have anything drilled in this area.
thanks john

Are you sure they are not where the tiedown plates went? These were used to chain down the cars during shipment. Some dealers took them off and others left them on. I bought a new 1970 Grabber Mustang in 1970 and they were still on the car. I later used them to help mount a dual exhaust system. My present 1970 Mach does not have the plates. At some point they were removed.

Bill, Thanks for the response. I put the bar stock and holes into the new frame rails. You may be right on the tie downs. I guess when I get ready to put the exhaust on I will look for some photos to help.
