Hi guys, thanks again. I guess since I just got the frame out from under my egg this evening, and discovered its rusted through, I am going to build a new frame. Was thinking I didn't need to till I saw what it looked like all exposed! So, I might as well go with a trailing arm. I am considering the flexride because of the adjustability, but Roy, I would love to see what specs you mentioned. Thanks again,

Jeremy

Do you have any pictures of the rust thru? Good to know where to look.

Hi Eddie, here is a picture of the rusted hole. It's at the back of the frame where the corner of the street side plywood rested. The other side is pretty rusted too, in fact most of the rear frame where the plywood floor contacted it. There also wasn't much holding the shell to the plywood, most of the fiberglass was free from around the floor. Also here is a picture a crack in the frame rail at the point where it bends toward the tongue.
