280z frame repair


Recommended Posts

Patcon is correct.  The 'inner fender' (which you might see as being the engine compartment side wall) forms the fourth side of the box.  Thar inner fender panel has a horizontal flange along its bottom edge.  For its part, the 'frame rail' has a vertical flange along its top surface.  The frame rail is joined to the inner fender by two rows of spot welds:  the first along the horizontal flange and the second along the vertical flange. 

I agree that it can be a head-scratcher until you stop and stare at the details.
