i bought a '79 'Stang last night from a friend, it has some rust on what i guess you would call the front subframe, and also in the trunk floor and rear seat area. as long as i put the car up level and square on stands it shouldnt be an issue to weld all this back up, should it?? this is a drag only project that will recieve SFC's and a cage, so i really dont see the worries as long as i put it back together square and level...
thanks

Sure - "as long as everything is square and level". Especially if you are adding sub frame connecters and a cage!

Pretty hard to offer an opinion with out pics - the subframe damage is a bigger issue than the trunk and rear seat area.

Anything can be fixed with Money and time

You should complete any chassis work like subframe connectors and cage with the stang on all 4 wheels because it may change the geometry of the car otherwise. So I would keep the stangs weight on the suspension when doing this work.
