Default Charleston Sc subframe reinforcement.

I believe my subframe is starting to tear, best place to get it done within 300 miles?

Is your trunk floor tearing or do you see cracks around the Subframe mounting points?

I think it's mounting points. I have a cage so I know it's not the floor.

Damn, all that work and you neglected the mounting points? That's usually the first place to go. There's plenty of shops in charlotte that could do it. Good luck

Po did turner motorsport plates. Never thought twice about it. I then realized the difference between turners and redish. Ugh this better not be a panel replacement job.

So the cage looks to be bolt through to the SF at the rear and front. This is interesting. What's your symptoms and have you confirmed anything?
