Default Re: 31 Roadster Question

Shure, as long as you have good metal to weld to, you can weld it however you want to as long as you are happy with it.

I just cut pieces out that aren't weldable and patch in where ever is needed either with spare metal fabrications or cuts from some new replacement patch pieces if you prefer. You want that B pillar (the support behind the door) as strong as it will be so the doors will shut well and stay that way. All the support there comes from the attachment of the frames & sheet metal to that body sub rail & seat frame. That pinch weld area on the bottom provides a lot of support too. It effectively joins three layers of steel together.
