Re: front subframe corrosion

Yeah, they weren't galvanised underneath so can rot. I had to have the floor welded on a '97 car last year. It tends to come as a shock, as the bodies normally last very well (the car I had welded was mint)

Re: front subframe corrosion

I was underneath my 99 cloverleaf on sunday. The subframes are just pressed steel. give it a good wirebrush, then hammerite. good quick fix.

Re: front subframe corrosion

use POR15, Hammerite is rubbish and you'll have to do it every year, with POR you'll only need to do it once.
