Will re upload the photos when i have some time as i used facebook links and apparently they expire after some time. 

 

Well the rear holes where a mystery. The guy that restored it apparently just welded a new fabricated panel over the old one thus hiding everything underneath. We managed to find 3 nuts out of the 4. And they all are very solid so the rust was nut coming from there. The last one we are going to insert a nut welded to a piece of metal from the inside of the car so that it can tighten by itself and no welding necessary. This will only be a temporary solution and to get the car rolling. One day, maybe when new rust starts forming in that area, i will take it to a proper panel beater and make it how it should properly be. But for now it's safe to drive. If it was the front subframe i would have been really worried since its holding the engine. But for the rear i'm ok with it staying like this for now.

So work had slowed down due to other engagements. It is now ramping back up. I started working on the front suspension. Here are some pics of the work done.
