[DML] Re: Need a rear frame portion

It certainly can be road salt but in my experience it is more likely the car was stored for an extended period of time on dirt. The moisture rises from the ground and condenses on the frame contributing to the rapid decomposition. The two most susceptible areas are the front crumple zone and the rear engine cradle. It is repairable in most cases. Splicing and replacing large sections of the frame should only be done by very experienced people so as to have a straight frame. Smaller repairs are not as critical. The frame is made up of pieces of 16 gauge CRS. Cutting and sectioning small areas is really not hard. Most of the work would be removing and replacing mechanicals if necessary to properly access all areas of the frame (like the motor and/or the transmission).
