My best guess for that rust is there is a gap there when the body is fitted and years of crap sit there get wet and that starts it off. Chassis not rusted because of the timber running along it.
Something is holding the plate in place and I would be looking at the vertical part of the chassis rail. Also looks like there is still a rivet not fully removed in the front hole. Need a pic of what is inside the C section.

Hi Cobbadog, think you’re bang on with the gap/wood/rust!

I’m confident that the plate is free from the rivets.

Think I’m gonna need a bigger hammer lol

Maybe use a little chain block and a D shackle to pull it sideways and out using the other rail as the anchor point

Probably need to wrap the chain around the rail and hook the block to the plate to give you enough travel

Well I got one side out.
Thanks Paul, didn’t have a chainblock but used two ratchet straps.

There were a couple of (thankfully) small welds holding it back.

Dont scrap them yet, they are the best templates you can have for the replacement plates.
Good work using the ratchets straps.

100%
They won’t get thrown until I’ve completely finished with them.
