Subframe refurbishments powder coating/painting etc

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Apologies if these is a concise thread on this but if there is i can't find it.

 

I am finally getting round to sorting out putting on the B12's i bought a year or so ago and i have a new set of wishbones, droplinks, bushes, engine mounts, bolts etc etc to refurb the front end drivetrain

 

I know the wishbone bolts from the subframe can be a pain so I previously managed to secure a VR6 subframe as a "just in case"

 

My front subframe/cross member has quite a bit of surface rust, radiator supports seems good and the main subframe seems okay with a bit of rust evident.

 

So i have decided i may as well get the spare subframe refurbished as well as the front subframe/crossmember and have it all (re)fitted at the same time

 

So whats are peoples opinions on the best route - sand blasting/soda blasting/chemical dip and then powder coat or paint

 

Also any recommendations on anyone that can provide me this refurbishment service, i am based in Worcestershire/Herefordshire.

 

Ta

Someone who was local to me near Sheffield. Wasn't ridiculously expensive either. Just strip yours down and find someone local as they are bloomin heavy to post

I've previously used a firm in Redditch - may be the other side of the county for you though.

Just in the process of doing mine, got it blasted locally for £30 along with the wishbones; painting it with Eastwood Extreme Chassis Black

Sorry for the delay replying. It was Redditch Shotblasters that I used too. They did a tow bar armature off my range rover, which is about the same size as a corrado subframe. It was £50 blasted and powder coated - that was a year ago and it's still in good condition.
