The "elephant ear" rear end separation repair , is a bad joke.

It's a hap hazard way of avoiding the issue, "AND" not being honest with the customer.

It avoids the issue of rotten wood and a braken or crack rear end floor channel.

It is not possible to give a realistic "ball park" cost without a visual inspection of the frame.

It is for certain, that there is frame damage and that the axles are done.
