Subframe reinforcement
Hi Fanatics

I'm struggle with subframe reinforcement on my 2jz e46 and would like to know if anyone can refer me to someone who could do the work in the pics below or an equivalent. I'm based, in Durban. Any advise and help will be welcomed

The car does have a subframe as do most cars. It's just that, where e46 chassis meets the rear subframe, it is very thin and weak and either tears or flexes. So strengthening and reinforcing is required in high horsepower or heavily tracked cars, drifting etc..
