no, Im sure othres can drop a sub frame, and the guy that did all the patch work does still work here although I dont know for how long (he'* been unhappy for awhile)

For you to get it done here, it would be well beyond an favous "lii see what I can do" sorta thing... this would have to be a full work order by the book sorta deal.
Thats true, but you'd get probably get some sort of guarantee if it was done by a GM dealer (you'd be paying a premium though). We do have a friend of the family that was in the automotive repair/collision (he recently sold his business) but I'm sure he'd be able to give me some advice on where it could get done in Mississauga.

To be honest, I'd pay a premium to get it done right, and you'll know it'* done right and will last.

I haven't followed that later part of this thread but Peter, if you're ever in need of a Stick of a Tig Welder to finish the job just let me know. I believe you're well past the plasma cutter stage.


Good Luck.

Sorry Peter, I'll go back and see the pictures. As for the plasma cutter, it'* on a loan basis only. Cost me a pretty penny that sucker, especially since I had to find a very portable one that works on both 115/230 V. Said thing is that I've only used it once.

I'm running to Canadian Tire for some rubberized undercoating right away! This is one of those "ounce of prevention" things, now we know the potential is there for this sort of thing to happen.

Looking good, Peter. Do you think it will be completed this week??

I agree, something like Peterg'* would be more than $500. But if the only bad area on mine is the one spot then it won't involve as much labor as his.

After removing my subframe they'll be able to inspect it more. If other areas are good then they'll only have to replace that one corner. At most maybe weld on some reinforcements at the other areas. My rust isn't as bad as Petergs.

Peter...we can walk you through the install. A trans is fairly easy when your car is on a lift.
