I don't see any beam issues, are you talking about the line-shaped hole in your wheel well?

If you look closely, the horizontal beam between the chassy and the broken wheel well is completely gone at the left end.

Let me know if you still don't see, i can take more pictures, thanks man!

Oh, I think I see it.

Man I need glasses! Hmmm, I'd say that you may need a bit of welding, possibly. When you get the chance get some more pictures.

One option for patching the holes in the floor is to use glass cloth and 2 part epoxy resin (I don't have any welding facilities!). You mix the 2 part epoxy and cut a patch of glass cloth and soak the cloth in epoxy. Benefit is that you can fill irregular shapes and it won't rust!. For the underside of my bus, I scrapped off the surface rust and treated with Tetroseal CarPlan TSL100 Tetroseal Underbody Sealant: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike (not sure what the US brand equivalent would be)

Dude, Thats pretty much "rust free" compared to the vehicles here in the "rust belt" Ohio.... I would squirt a little oil on it and forget about it. Not a serious case of frame rot that I can see, just a floor support.

You can always have it media blasted and spray it with your favorite rust inhibitor.

Timbrass, that's some nice patching.
I love it when people come up with ideas like that. It's what drives the evaluation of the skoolie conversions forward.

To the OP

I would just use a rust converter on that beam, and paint it.

To remove and replace would be a massive, ugly, costly job.
