Subframe Connectors

I decided to go with 50x75mm RHS bar through the floor for the subframe connectors.  This shot shows where the floor is cut to allow the bar to slide into the rear chassis rails.

The rear frame rail opened up, cleaned out, holes drilled for plug welds, and rust proofed.

Plasma cut 3mm plate for the torsion bar crossmember mount. This design reinforces the torsion bar anchor as well.

The bar needs to be narrowed to fit into the rear chassis rails... well as have an angle added as E Body rear rails aren't parallel with the chassis.

The joins were beveled, welded right through, then ground smooth.

The finished connector, rustproofed and ready to go in.

All welded up.
