Hi , while under the car today i found that both side rails (behind the sills) are made up from two  "L" section pieces  of steel angle, are these original replacements or has someone  DIY ed their own parts ? Dave.

That will be a DIY job. Original type has three sides, box section minus the inner face with steel tube pieces that line up with the mounting points on both front and rear tubs. If you ever replace them I would use the Chic Doig versions that are made up with heavier gauge metal than originally used. There should also be a short section about 10 inches long that closes the open section where it joins the rear out riggers. These are also available. I used the Chic version on my car but reinforced it as well as boxing it in the entire length.

Thanks for the replies, the angle is  overlapped and welded both sides to make the "C" section  and of heavier gauge than the actual outriggers, its all good though just some surface rust so i will rub down and paint what i can get at, ive already done the floor pans, Dave
