Martinsr if I try and move the radiator support it screws up everything.All the door gaps,hood.wiper cowl etc are very good.When I said better than expected a little early you would have to have seen the car before I started .The pass side door gap was about 1/2 ,drivers door 1/8 maybe a little more so I'm very happy with the gaps.The back door gap is about a paint stick and the front gap is not quite 2 paint sticks.
I was going to just leave the subframe as it is in the pic but I forgot about the front bumper I mounted it and it throws the front bumper off to one side.I was even looking at modifying the front bumper brackets but that's out of the question.I'm thinking I need to mount the front bumper then move the subframe till all looks good do some measuring then bolt it down.
Widetrack As for moving the subframe I'm going to try both ways.
