Got a rear subframe taking up space. It came from my 1989 Mayfair.

It is mainly solid other than two points on the top side where they reach the front of the frame. If your handy with a welder I reckon its repairable. Inside it still looks like new.

I have no need for it but seems a shame to scrap a genuine subframe if someone can make use of it even if its only to get a project rolling.

Collection from near Stansted Airport

Any closer pictures of where it needs welding? Whats it like between the layers of metal around where the trumpets fit into?

Heres some pictures, seem solid around the trumpet area with some surface rust. Its the two top sides which are the worst and the rust seems to be fairly localised.

 The metal underneath the top plates looks solid.

Common subframe rott. Aslong as the webbing isn't rotten easy enough to repair.
