rusty unibody

Last weekend I changed a leaky wheel cylinder on my 66 corsa. While i was doing that I noticed the rust on the unibody in front of the drivers side rear wheel is getting really bad. I wont be driving it. Do you have experience with this, and what if any thing can be done to replace or repair The unibody/frame?

Ok. I knew this was coming. I am headed out to the barn to get the pictures. The hard part is loading them on the computer. Please stand by.

I actually thought of you when I saw the damage. The cars you work on make a Michigan man drool!
