Corroded Subframe: Repair Costs?

I've recently had 2 advisories on my MOT for corroded front and rear subframes (though not corroded enough to compromise structural integrity).

Does anyone have any idea how much this would cost to treat this properly? I'm after a scrub down, kurust type treatment then paint/powder coat finish.

Thanks, Matt

Did it myself a few weeks ago, bought the Loctite rust treatment, some hammerite and a wire brush... then when it went in for service prior to MOT my local indie undersealed it all for about 50 i think it was. I know Autolusso were on about the powder coating option.

I also coated mine last weekend, but as mine isn't too bad yet I just used Bilt Hamber Dynax UB

Here's the link to the Autolusso thread regarding replacement subframes:

Whilst coating mine I realised that to repair and repaint them thoroughly (including the inaccesible top parts), they would have to be removed from the body which will be a big and expensive job for the front one!!!
