I tried the floor jack and block of wood but the lower support is bent upwards and towards the front of the car. It was worth a shot so thanks to you and Stanglx for the suggestion. I'll start looking around for a support locally. There used to be some pretty decent salvage yards over by Orlando Speedway. If that doesn't pan out, I'll take a look at that one is Georgia (I think it was MPS salvage) and karthief , I'm sure you will make up that $15 when I start pestering you for parts.I would agree with Stanglx or possibly call that mustang salvage yard in Georgia and ask if they can cut a piece out of a wreck, there is very little structural integrity there, it could be cut out and another butt welded fairly cheap.
I'll forget about that $15 bucks you owe me for the zip ties, ratchet straps and wood you used since the car had hidden damage.
