jt,

I swear those torque boxes are "one size fits all" and maybe just change a part #.....

What I have found is the welds in a row along the rear bottem are very weak.
You can cut them loose with just a hack saw and bend the whole piece to fit better in a vise.
I use a couple of 1/4-20 bolts to hold the shape till everything is fitted then re-do the original welds.

And you took all the fun part out of the project using a spot weld cutter.......alot more fun to play "Texas Chain Saw Massacre" with a sawsall on the floors!
