the sub frame has been fully built and was fitted back to the car to make it rolling again. will still need to compete couple of things on it c.v boots etc and rubbers but that can wait until the car goes in for respray. will be coming back out so it doesn't get over spray over it. 

 

i am very happy with the sub frame build looks really smart now.
