Should I just put a bent L piece of 1/8 metal to replace my cargo and firewall?

By my jack support, they made my heater ?tunnels? collapse and crack, and then rusted through. Ill get pics.
And inside by the front vent by my pedals, its rusted through..

I have a small spot on my battery area (passenger side) too but im going to replace the whole 1/4 pan from chirco.

IMO 1/8 inch sheet metal is way too thick. If it is rotted out bad, you can buy that whole piece. Mine is rotted at the firewall also, I am going to use an overlay since my car is caged and that is no longer a structural part.

Here is the part: www.bfyobsoleteparts.c...p-118.html

Since the engine cage damaged it, you will need some re-inforcement so it doesn't happen again. Do you have a roll bar/cage? If not some thick metal like you were talking about is probably in order, in larger pieces to spread the load and sandwich the body panel. Make sense?
