One rusty frame rail, use Bad Dog weld-over on both?

Hello all, I'm getting back in to S30's after many years with a 1971 series 1 that I bought a few weeks ago. The frame rail under the battery is pretty bad and I'd like to fix it. Thing is the driver side rail has no rust. Should I order the pair from Bad Dog or try to find someone to fab me a patch parts for just the passenger side?

Yup, Great product. If you don't, obviously they won't match and more strength is better than less.

Yup. Get the Bad Dog rails. No fabrication needed and the extra strength won't hurt.
