    Default CX Subframe

    I had a good look at the Subframe rails on the CX today. They have been bashed in just under the driver and passenger seats to the point where that are almost flattened. I really should replace these at some stage so, if anyone has a parts car that they wouldn't mind me tipping on its' side, please let me know (I promise to be gentle....)

    It is the two longurinnnnnnnes (whatever there called) between the front and rear subframes - they really have been caved in. I will show you when I come up.....

    If you separate the sub frames from the longerons you will need to make up some sort of a jig to keep the front and rear sub frames properly aligned to each other. This is critical!

    I'm watching the list stack up of things that apparently need attention sooner than later. It's making for a disappointing perspective on what was hoped to be a good car.

    Could the car be dry stored, and a suitable "chassis" built up with all good bits and PAS etc, then the shell lifted onto it?

    I am not to concerned, I won't attach the new subframe bits until I start the resto later next year. In the meantime, I intend driving it and repairing other bits as I go. Really only a few things that I hadn't expected and, that would probably be true of any 40yo car you buy....

    No Greg because it is on both sides - looks like somebody went 4 wheel driving and slid over a rock
