rear ended

Hi all

My 33 s3 P4 has a rotten rear end so I have found a donor rear end,that is, the floor and structure from the reinforcing behind the rear seats rearwards. My question is then :-
How do I brace it and how best to chop the old one out? any help greatfully recieved.Kev ?

depends how much you're going to replace.

if you are usning the floor with the back panel as one then i would try and save the original chassis rails if they are ok. that way you will retain far more strength and it will make it easier to align things up.

if you simply chop it all off in a neat line say above the axle then it will become very weak. you need to stagger the joint, like when laying bricks, to create strength.

some pics of what you have to replace may give a better idea
