Re: Need a Front subframe

I have put 2 coats of black Tremclad rust paint on the subframe. We'll have to grind some of it off to weld the upper transmission mount bracket on.

The paper towel wadding: would I put this...

Re: Need a Front subframe

Thanks for the congratulations. I was very happy to not send her to scrap.
Thanks also for the assessment of the frame's integrity. I know the rad is not going to go back in nicely (subframe is...

Re: Need a Front subframe

Yes, unfortunately the kid who did some work on it for me had just painted over the shipping tape. :(

Today I will remove the tape and repaint it with rust-prevention paint.

Hey, is...

Re: Need a Front subframe

Okay, thanks Bryan. I had wondered if that dent might compromise the structural strength of the subframe. I'm very happy that I can just go ahead and use it.

Re: Need a Front subframe

I've found a divet in the subframe. Do you think this dent will compromise its strength?

Flaky ignition switch (steering column): is there a cure?

Hello All,

When I remove the key on my 1993 SL1, the beeper (door open indicator? - or belt indicator?) stays on, and the dashboard lights as well. I really have to fiddle with it - pull key...

Re: For sale: 1993 Saturn SL1 for project or parts

Fate has intervened, and it looks as though I'll be able to complete the repairs, rather than sell the car.

(I don't know how to remove this Classifieds post).

Re: Need a Front subframe

Good News: the on again/off again project is back on.

My SL1 was very close to going to the wreckers, but again fate intervened, and it looks likely that I can complete the repairs.

Re: Need a Front subframe

I finally found a really good subframe, at a fair expense. I will send pictures of it soon.

BUT.... Fate has intervened in my project. Due to life circumstances, I have to let the car go. ...

I don't currently have access to a torque wrench. Is the torque critical?

I'll find out where it sits when I get the new (used) subframe. Thanks for the tips!

Re: Need a Front subframe

I hadn't thought of this: the rebent frame wouldn't be structurally sound. Okay, I'll pass on that one.

The "L" brackets sound like a good idea. Will the rad hoses still connect if I do this,...

Re: Need a Front subframe

First thing I will do if I need new bolts is call my buddy at Chevy Parts. But I think there is a Fastenall in Orillia, which is closeby.

Re: Need a Front subframe

Wow. That's amazing. If I had the cash, I's get this brand new one. I wonder if these guys bought up GMs remaining stock years ago.

Re: Need a Front subframe

Subframes are hard to find in Canada. Five out of the eight places I've tried from car-part.com told me the ad is old, and they no longer have the vehicle. I'm still waiting on answers from the other...
