I cleaned this up a bit but realised the it was actually pushed backwards. I think at some point in it's past the subframe towers have broken and the subframe mounts have all moved.

I had the nice shiny steel tube delivered so it was time to get started.

Loving all this precision cutting and welding!




You do know that Mk2's are half an inch longer on one side than the other don't you?  :lol:

That must be a good one !
I am beginning to realise they aren't perfect. The original crssmsmber was pushed back quite a bit so hopfully that will be fixed when this is attached.

I cut some tube to make the new subframe mountings and bolted it onto the subframe. It's a start on getting the subframe re-attached to the car again.

I reckon that you are going to have the cross member fouling the top of the wheel when you have the engine. Shocked 

Unless, they are 13" and you intend to put 12" on it.

The front is help up with blocks of wood where the bump stops should be at the moment. Your right the tyre will rub but I will be cutting the lower box section back to give clearance once it's all welded in. I thought it would be easier to keep it all straight doing it like this. Hopefully I have worked it all out right or I will have to fit 10" wheels on it !

Steering rack and subframe mounts. Pretty much the same as normal just higher up on the chassis to match the repositioned subframe.



Where I am with the new pedal box mounting. It needs quite a bit more work yet but I think it will work OK.

A few more pictures of what I have been doing. The subframe mount/crossmsmber will be cut away in the center for carb clearance.

I got hold of these seats. I'm not 100% sure I will use them yet but they are so much more comfortable than Mini ones. Put a bit of paint on the new tubes as well.



I've offset the central tubes to allow clearance for the carburettor /air filter. It will also give a bit more room if I decide to fit a weber or some sort of injection system in the future.



This is the engine that will be going in it. It's a 1380 with a balanced bottom end and a 286 cam. Not sure about the output but with it geared to do about 100 mph at 7000 rpm it went quite well.

I had a bit of a look to see what it will be like when finished, gives me a bit of practice on photoshop ! I have angled the screen pillars back a bit more and covered the bulkhead tube with a 1 piece side panel as it looks a bit odd being a different angle.

I needed to finish welding the various bits I had fitted at the front and the easiest way to do that was to turn it over. I had to strip the subframe, pedals, steering column etc out to do this and once it was welded I cleaned it up and gave it a quick coat of primer. You can also see I have joined the steering rack mount area to the bulkhead. I'm planning on running some square tube around the toeboard area but I don't know where that will go until I sit the proper suspension and wheels so I can work out various clearances.

Hopefully as soon as I can put some sort of shed up I can get on with it again I would have done that a bit sooner if I hadn't finally, after about 7 years, put up our greehouse !

Exactly the same place that my Mk3 has the chassis number welded on it.

I haven't seen under the bonnet of a MK3 but it seems a pretty logical place to put it. The only problem is that it's a part that might be replaced in the event of an accident. 
Late Andrew MacLean built Mk2's had their numbers welded onto the drivers side subframe mount brace bar I understand so there is no chance of them getting lost.

This is where it is, I had to rub the paint off to make it show up on camera.
