there is a "frame" to speak of but it does not unbolt, its welded to the body of the car. so when you hear someone say theyve done a "frame off" restoration on a camaro you know they really dont know what theyre talking about

I was just looking into replacing a rear frame rail. I think you can drill out the spot welds to remove the old one with out too much trouble, then you need to spot weld the new one in and make sure you get it straight and in the right place which is probably the hardest part.

Rick's First Generation Camaro sells rear frame rails. You cut off most of the old one and this new one has a little notch in the end to fit into the remenants of the old one and replace the cut portion.
