1958 frame repair

I would like input on where to source frame channel for my 58 Pacer.

I did a quick measure and it looks like 4 inches tall, 2 inches across the top and 1 inch across the bottom.

I need about 5 feet of channel.

Todd, don't know if this helps you, but I went to a local welding/metal fab shop that bent some channel for my Sovereign. They just needed a piece for a pattern, and I had them use a slightly heavier gauge.


Somebody ought to clean these windows. There is a tremendous buildup of gook all over them...

If you get down around middleburry, Indiana just stop in at Fortress Technologies. They currently build Airstream chassis and I bet they would give you a main rail. I have met the managers and they are a good bunch of guys.
