Default Re: DIY: Subframe reinforcement epoxy/foam method. e46

Can this method be used if cracks already exist?

Looking at the specs, compression strength is about 5x less than 1908. Not sure that I would use this.

I just finished reinforcing with Turner plates and epoxy underneath. I'm now ready to do the foam from the trunk.
Can I do the foam while the subframe is mounted to the car? Could it potentially drip out of the drain holes onto their subframe/diff or prevent me from backing out the subframe bolts at a later date?

You can foam the car with the subframe mounted to the car.
