Lindbergh and our biggest Rock Stars... four generations of The Henry Ford Family; all from Detroit. I'm sure I forgot some like Lee Majors, Judge Mathis, Ed McMahon, George Peppard, and the David Spade.

Finally some good news on this restoration. Cut away the outer rocker and some other shoddy patchwork metal and was pleasantly surprised to find 2x3 rectangular steel tube running the length of the driver's side.

When you find body work like that fender bottom under the paint and filler, you wonder what else you will find.

The addition of that beam makes the structure of your floor even stronger than OEM. It's a 'must have' for convertibles.

I think the common size that most restorers use on Squarebirds is a 2" X 4" channel. I'm sure either will do just fine. - Dave
