I have a 1970 4-dr Impala and have found some rust holes on the frame even with the front door hinges / right at the front fender rear section area...

Instead of replacing the frame, has anyone known of anyone just cleaning it up and welding in new metal without taking the body off the frame?

It pretty much comes down to if there is enough SOLID METAL around the rusted area to weld a patch to. Once you start grinding & banging around with a pick hammer that 2" rust hole can end-up being over a foot of rotted weak crap.
