    You need to cut the inner wheel house away from the floor and the inner wheelhouse. The best way is to drill out the spot welds. Then trim the floor back as far as the inner wheelhouse will be. Then span the gap with similar guage sheetmetal spot welded to the inner and outer wheelhouses. Watch the space between the quarter and the frame. That's your maximum width unless do major work to the frame.

    Hey,

    It's been a looong time since I was under an early Falcon, but I
    do recall that for an early unibody they were built like a brick shit
    house! Does the frame rail run right along the otherside of the inner-
    wheel house? If so, you'll have to rebuild that frame inboard and tie
    all of the rear floor, wheelhouses, stretcher panels into that design.
    If ya don't, you'll build a hinge into the rear of that vehicle, probably
    collapse the quarter panels outwards, and may even, depending on
    how many horses you're gonna run, spit the back window out.
