Had a good weekend with a mate working on the front subframe. The front tie rail was cactus, as you will see in the pics below, so that was replaced with a Rare Spares item which was a great fit, needed no massaging to fit.  Several spots on the side rails needed some patching but were overall quite good, both sway bar mounting points needed replacing with new captive nuts. I'm using a VT commodore radiator, which is very wide, so we custom fab'd some mounts and supports. The grille, apron and radiator support panels were all test fit to ensure clearance. I've left a fair bit of wiggle room up, down, forward and back, and will finalise it all once the motor is test fit.  I'm happy to say that the subframe is now rust free.

whilst at it, we welded on the subframe strengthening plates. Plenty of copper weld-thru. My little 135 mig performed admirably!
