1970 Chevy Chevelle Malibu Project - Project XS Chevelle, Part Two-Rustification Restoration Photo Gallery
The passenger side mount was just as bad. Because the convertible's structure was so weakened with the floor rusting out, the body mounts were subjected to even more stress and pressure to keep the car from crushing itself like an empty beer can. Once the rust was blasted away, we found stress cracks around the body cushion and mount holes on both the passenger and driver's side pieces. Whenever you're dealing with a really rusty car with compromised structural integrity, take great care and thought before unbolting anything. A seemingly useless and unimportant bolt or weld could be the only thing keeping your project together!
