    I thought about trying to repair it, but its double walled in that area. I found out just how bad when I jacked up just the rear wheels to go under and replace a torn muffler hanger. Had it on jackstands at the two rear jacking points. All of a sudden a sound of ripping metal and the bolt at the rear of the subframe tore completely out, dropping the subframe about 4 or 5 inches.

    Later inspection showed that the U shaped rib stiffener at the front of the floor was completely rotted out. What I suspect happened is that when the windshield was replaced early on the installer didn't use pinchweld primer. Was getting leaks on the passenger floorboard even when not driven, I bet water and salt were leaking in between the inner and outer panels. With significant rust at the drivers side mounting point as well, I figured doing both sides was going to be very expensive.

    The rocker panel pinch welds are still mint on this car, by virtue of the mudflaps I ran on the car.

    I picked up a 95 silver MTX that has never seen winter, was parked in a barn every winter, and always garaged in the summer by the original owner.. The car's body is like new, just two tiny stone chips in the hood, a scratch at the rear of the drivers quarter, and that is about it, no door dings. It is a lot of work to move two decades worth of upgrades from one SHO to another, but compared to what I would have had to do to take it apart and hire a mobil welding outfit its probably a wash.

    Instead of replying in that other thread i'll reply here about the trans.

    Supposedly Aldrich has a trans i'm waiting to hear back from him. He always comes through so I doubt i'll be looking but it's nice to have options, I need a spare. LMK what you'll want for it shipped also.

    I have a black car so the body parts aren't needed but i'm curious about the interior color.

    I'm considering just purchasing your diff and installing it in the parts trans I have, but i've never done it. I researched it in depth years ago, i'll have to look into it again.

    After I get over all the money i'm sinking into the a/c system right now I might purchase your struts. I have kyb quick struts and they are absolutely horrible. My oem fronts with 200k rode considerably better. PM me a price shipped on all four for the hell of it.

    All I have are rear Konis, one new insert in box, one with roughly 5 K on it in housing, and one well used example (but not leaking) in housing. They are long body type. Not in a hurry to sell as I may swap them onto my new SHO. The fronts sold almost before the ad went up.
