Engine Bay and frame rails
kind of a newbie here. I have a '67 Coupe with a 289. We just removed the engine to see how much sheet metal work needs to be done in the engine bay.
Two big things that need to be repaired are both side Front frame rail and floor supports. Both are a rusty swiss cheese mess.
The drivers side shock tower has some very strange welding and the passenger side battery apron is a complete mess.
Other than that the engine bay is OK.
So here is my question. I'm looking at buying the "Full shock tower" for both drivers and passenger side (from CJ). Those seem to come as a complete kit (sans the engine mounts) but require a bunch of work and welding to get these in. Also purchasing the floor supports. Together these look like they will have everything i need to get back to 'original'
-Or- i'm looking at buying Total control products full "Slip" system. This system seems to be complete too but requires some aprons to be purchased to get rid of the rust.
The TCP changes from Original to modified but gives me 'new' technology and a better ride. I'm not trying to make this car a street racer or performance machine... jsut keep it a Sunday driver.
Anybody have this same debate? Any experience with the TCP product?
