Rear subframe on Estoril. Every single bushing at the rear subframe and suspension, plus some reinforcement and other goodies. Being able to have the car up on jacks for a few weeks is definitely the only way I’d be able to tackle this project. But man, pressing out bushings is a real pita. Once we got it all apart, the bushings didn’t look bad at all, but hey, I already bought all the replacements and the damn thing was out already...
The subframe mounting points are a bit of a concern with the E36 and E46 chassis, and I was definitely holding my breath to see what I’d find there. Luckily, the real MVP previous owner already reinforced the subframe mounting points! Those are the welded-on plates around the mounts.
The sandblaster has got to be one of my favorite tools.
Also some adjustable control arms going in.
Not an exact color match, but close enough.
