    PLS post a pic of your subframe connectors

    I want to reinforce the body of my convertible and I was thinking at subframe connectors.
    There are many out there but I want to fabricate my owns. It will cost me almost nothing... but if I order them from the States the shipping may cost 2x than the parts

    The vendors always show pictures of the connectors alone, do you have a picture of the complete installation? Details? Description? Measurements (like thickness)?

    Thanks - Stefano

    Here's the driver side of my 99 Z28 we just finished

    I installed the Hardtop Boxed subframe connectors from BMR Fabrication. Check out their website. Their installations instructions have detailed pics of the install process from beginning to end.

    Here's what my driver side looked like after being installed.

    Thanks! Pretty clear.

    The SFC's for the convertible look pretty different, is there a particular reason?

    Can I use the coupe SFC's for a convertible?

    Some SFC's are welded, some other are bolted. Is the bolted solution much weaker than the welded?

    Thanks

    The convertible i believe has a slightly stronger chassis since there is no top. So there might be some things in the way of the hardtop connectors.

    As for weld on vs bolt on chassis parts, I personally feel the weld-on versions would be stronger especially if its done by a good welding shop.

    I welded mine in place and havn't had any issues with them. And what a difference they made, kinda wish I would have installed them sooner.

    Do I have to follow a particulate procedure in order to not damage the PCM or other electronic devices? Like disconnect both poles of the battery? Or disconnect the PCM form the rest of the wiring?

    What kind of welding can I do? Electrode? TIG?
