Tubbing my malibu

Hey everyone.Havent posted for a while,had to change email.I have been cutting up my Malibu for the tub job and I now have old fender tubs cut out,floor cut out as needed and frame cut out.I guess my question is do I leave the contour of the old wheel tub next to panel where seat belts are molded into side panel?I would like to use the original cover and trim for this area.I have pics if I can figure out how to get them on here.Thanks everyone!

You want to leave as much as you can get away with.. If you cut to much out you may be added it back later... The inter body panel can be welded back to the fenders,, Look at the pictures I posted.... It may give you some ideas..

Man that car would be much easier to work on if you didn't have it on it's side..LOL

No !!! It's looking good so far... I buy new axles from Moser Engineering,,Moser Engineering - Moser Engineering - Home

They should have a form to fill out on their web site.. You will need to know what brakes you are going to be using..

I use to get all mine cut.. But Now I just buy new one's with the new bearing ready to go.. I do all my own housing..(9'')

Here !!! I going to give you a hand flipping the car back on all fours..



Add a few more pictures when you can... Might see something we can help with.. Look's like you should be able to cut a little more out the inside between the two tires..You will need the room there to work..

Now... If your planning on going with street tires,, You should be setting it up with them and not the slick's... There is a little difference between the two..

It's looking good so far.. Remember.. You said this is your first time.. You took the hardest step so far.. Cutting it up... Take your time and it will all work out.. DON'T RUSH IT !!!! That's when things go wrong... After this one you will want to do more..

I'm a pro street guy.. Not sure how many Pro street cars I had.. But I like the look of them big fatties under the back end..
