This is how it arrived after a very wet trip home.
 


I have the original subframe that shows signs of being welded up and another thats in a bit better condition and thats about it.

This is it after a big clean up. Lots of moss and dirt were inside it that went and I removed a lot of the original fittings as they were beyond using again. I fitted the better of the two subframes and removed the welded on roll cage legs it had as well.

If only thats all it needs ! It isn't quite as bad as I feared but is still going to need a fair amount of work done to it.

If you do get the frame shot blasted have a think about galvanising it afterwards. My MK2 had the frame galvanised in 1996 when it was first built and it seems to have kept the tin worm away - so far!

A friend with a Range Rover he rebuilt suggested this as well, not sure how much it would cost though. He didn't do his and it's already going a bit rusty in places.

I'm going to have to do something about the pedals, possibly box them in somehow as they are very open to the elements and the bulkhead isn't very well sealed.

Pedal box area

Post  Mk3rob on Mon Mar 31, 2014 9:16 pm

When you box in the pedal box area try to fit a removable plate on it.
It makes getting those bloody split pins out at the bottom of the Master cylinder a lot easier.

I have been having nasty thoughts about fitting a non Mini engine in it. I've got a Vauxhall 1.6 and a 1.5 diesel engine that's currently in our old Citroen AX.

Not sure yet. I am going to have to replace a lot of the metal work the subframe mounts onto anyway. I will think a bit more.

I think being a bit mad helps. Just to prove this I spent an evening doing this.
I don't have CAD to do any design work so I did this on Minecraft ! It gives a rough idea about how the chassis tubes are laid out.

I have been having a bit more of a poke around at it. One concern it how the rivets have rotted away. I was considering using stainless steel fixings and rivnuts to secure the alloy panels.

Stainless can cause galvanic corrosion of the ali, much more than low alloy steel. If you're going to use it I'd suggest plastic inserts rather than rivnuts, and plastic washers under the bolt heads.

I'll second what Bob said....

If you want to go the stainless steel bolt route....try Screwfix.....

They carry A2 stainless capheads, button head & countersunk bolts....be warned, tho they're cheapish, the heads on the buttonholes are quite shallow & can strip without decent Allen keys. Use copperslip
copperslip, on every bolt & you'll be fine.....nearly every bolt on Walle is from Screwfix  whistle 

Screwfix also carry the better A4 stainless, but with less choice in sizes....

DONT use their "bzp" plated bolts or washers......6 months & the plating will look crap & they'll start to rust....been there when no stainless in stock & impatient.  Rolling Eyes 

Coincidentally I'm on my way to Screwfix  Embarassed their 1mm cutting discs are quite cheap  Surprised

Thanks for the advice, I will look at it more when I get a bit nearer to fitting the panel work back on.

The entire floor on my mk2 is suspended on 1/2 inch rubber washers mainly to prevent any rattling which it does beautifully but also to stop the ally check floor coming in to contact with the steel chassis ala range rover rear split door style.....

I have been stripping some of the panels off to see how bad things are. I think these subframe mounts are going to need some work.


The back end doesn't seem too bad.




I think this might have already been re-welded in the past.

I have been looking round for box section suppliers. Getting hold of imperial tube seems a bit difficult now but I have found company that can supply it at a reasonable cost.
