9/29/2003: Subframe

Over the last several days, I have been disassembling the replacement subframe I plan to use for the car. I’ve got all the suspension components off now, and it is ready to be sandblasted and repainted. Right now it’s covered in a thick coating of some sort of epoxy paint, but it’s not all that resistant to chipping, and it’s a rather unauthentic looking blue color.

The plan is to find somewhere to sandblast it for me, then repaint it in black POR-15. I think it may need a bit of metal work, as it has a few dents and popped welds. We’ll see what it looks like once it’s stripped.
