Has anyone repaired a torque box on a unibody f100?

I got a 63 f100 uni and in the process of restoring it but my one big issue is the torque box, its pretty rusty, i have another 63 uni parts truck but its not any better of shape. Has anyone tried to repair this? thanks

I looked into it on mine to repair driver side crash damage. There is alot involved. The torque box ties the rear floor, rear bulkhead, rocker panels, and bed floor, all together. I have a straight rust free 63 body in Yucca Valley Ca. 100 mi east of LA yours if you want it bring a trailer.
