Frame connectors
« on: August 04, 2012, 05:50:06 PM »
What do I use for sub-frame connectors, does some year mustang fit ?   Or am I on my own and just fabricate something ?   Thanks

dont know about frame connectors.... .............. ..........  i was flabergasted to see that a pinto just does not have a rear frame, no wonder if hit in the rear they were big trouble, you would be better having a full cage to tie it all together unless you can fab some sort of rear rails so you actually have something to weld subframe connectors to..
