Everyone deserves an awesome neighbor. I'm lucky to have one myself- Brett. The next series of pics are the results of him welding up my subframe. Unfortunately for me and my car, while welding the subframe connectors we discovered the rear frame rails are rusted enough that a good weld was not able to be achieved, so I'll be needing either new frame rails, or, at the least reinforcing them with more material. I'll probably go for the latter, as this way I can build exactly what I need and use any thickness gauge of material I choose.

The pics attached are mostly of the underside of the subframe, including a reinforcement gusset added to the DSE frame bracket. This should help provide more stability for this part (instead of just relying on welding it to the sheet metal) One pic you can see the side profile of it, but it is only tack welded in that view. DSE provides a triangular bracket to act as a gusset for the top side, but that has not been added yet.

My next post will show pics of the subframe connectors in place.

The project keeps going....

more pics. They're going to fit over the rear frame rails as much as possible before the bend in the rails for more welding/ better adhesion.

pics of the subframe connectors Im making out of 2x3 stock. They'll fit inside the factory subframe and over the rear frames. I'm slicing them to weld them closer (er, my neighbor who's a good weldor) for a better fit.
