Started the subframe overhaul today, didn't get very far to be honest just stripped everything down to individual components.
Here's some pictures.




Once everything's stripped down plan to stiffen the trailing arms up.

Not done much over Christmas but order bits finally got some time today to do a bit so fit the four rear braided hoses and cut all the inner skin out of the boot and started to mount it on pins and spring locks.




Also managed to get other takata harness at a good price for the passenger side.

I've been cleaning the subframe this and got a coat of paint on it tonight. Only brushed on some Hammerite but it'll do to make it look a bit prettier and also I've welded a strengthen plate across the top diff mount.

No subframe adjustment tabs?

Just had a look at them, this is my first e30 so not sure on everything I've ordered a set today so hopefully they'll be here this week. Also finished off the trailing arm stiffening.
