Here's a better before shot on the passenger side of how the inner sill to castle rail is open. You can see parts of the original inner sill hanging down below the angle iron where I overlapped it. The bad metal was cut away and everything was sandblasted and Variprimed years ago before we welded in the angle iron, so I'm confident that if I keep it as a sunny-day driver I won't have any issues.

I've been working on my nice-day DD, a much unloved GM FWD car, Chevy Beretta GT. I don't care what other people think, I like it. New struts, strut bearings, shocks, shock mounts, motor mounts, tires, and much more. I had like 5 or 6 defective struts so it took forever with shipping back and forth.
