Yeah the trans was pulled... but not for better access

Ok..then are you rebuilding it or something? Because if it'* not for access I'm wondering why you would do the extra work. The subframe is plenty of work by itself.

looks good. What would the approximate cost of this be? Also, how much is the tranny rebuild? I may consider having mine done in the near future.

Get some rust converter/POR 15 into that space too to stop it from returning. Also, why not weld a nut to the new holes on the passenger side inorder to hole the bolts. Just incase the sunframe has to come down again.

On the nuts. The originals are in a channel that keep them from spinning, this is to give them a little movement in the case that the subframe is removed and moved a little in any direction for fitment.

It seems that Peter could almost weld those in place and when putting the subframe back in..start with those bolts.

Bingo.



as for cost. 90% if being payed off in favours, so I dont know how much it would acctually cost snyone to be fixed... Id estimate the frame repairs would be $5-800+


the trans is costing me 700 + lost labour time painting the guys quarter panels
