Torque box repair 93' Fox!

Alright ladies and lads,
I bought a 93' Mustang and the previous owner had a hopped up 351 in the car and an automatic race tranny.... Needless to say the torque boxes are mangled. How do I go about repairing them properly? I looked on google to see what other Fox body enthusiasts are doing to rectify the issue.
All I want to know is that if you have dealt with this than how do I fix it?
