    Almost every piece of metal is available to replace your rotten chassis/frame. I cant see why cant you accomplish refurbishing all of it (if so required) all you need is to have access to all the correct/quality replacement cuts and solid welding skills.

    Most of your doubts would be washed away after reading through these:

    if there are still more questions, you can always post a pic of the rotten chassis and shoot a question or two. I am sure there are plenty of knowledgeable fellas around with hands on to help you find answers you are looking for. Trust me lot worst have been saved over the years with determination and skill. Chassis is not a biggie. cheers

    PS: Oh and dont forget to keep the bentley handy, as it has all the chassis measurements that you would need. :)
