Default hello all, from a new f-40 owner

I just took possession of a 72 f40. The rear sill is suffering from the usual rust cancer. Can I get a few suggestions for a good place to get a replacement part to weld in? The tire is mounted on the right rear.
Thanks in advance,

Check out Jeff Zepp's page and tech tip on replacing the rear sill on his '71 FJ40

Rocky Mtn is in englewood and they have a web site you can check parts and prices. You can then order and go pick them up and Ron will spend time with you answering any questions. That would be my recommendation.

Before going crazy trying to make it look good. Spend the time and money to make it safe. Start with brakes, wireing, fire extinguisher, seatbelts, cage, pinion nuts tight, All bolts and nuts tight for that matter. Batery hold down, Belts and hoses. If its body is rusty there are usually other issues that need addressing. Just my .02. Beauty is more than skin deep.
