Cradle (SUbframe) Swap Issues- 1993 SL1 and 1994 SC2
So my newly acquired 93 SL1 is mint all around minus a very crusty cradle... have done these swaps before so no issues all around from the tricky LCA bolts to working the crusty cradle out.
But after taking out the 93's cradle I noticed something different, the 93 has its transmission dog bone mounted to the cradle(not the vehicle frame itself) and the subframe from my 94 sc2 has the transmission dog bone mounted to the vehicle frame.
In a tight spot now, want to get this thing on the road... do I
a)weld on the bracket from my crusty 93 sl1 to the 94 subframe? (anyone done it before lol? it has one 15mm bolt and a tack welded bolt as well)
b) Somehow a way to add said transmission dog bone that mounts to the vehicle frame?
c) track down a very rare (so pretty much have to buy) a 91-93 sl or sc which in Canada is not as easy as
Any advice is a huge help guys, most subframe info online is just about the rad change. Not many that mention the tranny dogbone mount moving from cradle to frame!

I don't remember that part being an issue with any of my radiator switcharoo's lol
Pretty sure it's riveted on...drill through it on the '93 cradle, make a mount hole on the '94 cradle and drop a grade 8 bolt through it to hold it in place (with accompanying washers).
