Thankyou sir! That FFP balancer is going on the shelf in my living room when I go back to a factory balancer this winter, lol.

Oh yea, this looks fine, right? Haha...

We were going to just change the OPSU due to a bad oil leak... needless to say this resulted in having to go to a local JY immediately to find a replacement subframe assy.

I hope to someday make it to a Bfest with the car, but that won't be any day soon...

I'm a little more sad I can't find the photos of my old control arms, they were trashed!

LOL rear main seal leak would have saved that frame. Well it did for my 90GT. The fear is setting in on the 95.
Must agree on those freaking nice fillers!

Always a fan of innards being tinted versus the exterior method.

I've always had an oil leak issue with the pan, so my passenger subframe is still okay, but if I'm doing one I might as well do the other!

I made sure when I did my inserts to not tint the back up lenses either, with my 20% window tint and the factory tint on the lenses it would've made them utterly useless, lol.

And yes, those fillers Robert hooked me up with are gorgeous! I wish the pictures did them justice...

That is a good way to think about it. You going to save the passenger frame as a spare?

Yep, the driver's side I'll just throw in the scrap pile. Progress has been real slow though, I hate winter because I can't get any painting done!

Sounds good, wish I had a spare subframe or two. As if adding to the pile is a good idea. Then again(lol).

Hear ya on that! It can be done, leave the spray can inside until it's needed and use small heaters to warm the area before. Then there is the risk of it not holding and having to do it all over again. Best to wait and that is a weight on the mind.

I need to just get ahold of the guy that's going to coat the subframes and have him do the sway bars for me! He did a killer job on an intake manifold and 4bbl for my Caprice just a few months ago too...

Before and after -
