    I think it's a problem already with only 2 known spare frames left in the world! The lady at Brown & Gammons said the stock they did have was bought from the Rover plant when they went bust. So I get the impression that spares have never been made since production. We've just been using up surplus stock from the old days.

    Have you tried Andy at Bespoke auto developments? I got my complete rear stuff up from there as did a few others, he must be worth a call.

    I seem to remember about a year or so ago that Brown & Gammons sold them all off for peanuts, 60.00 or so. I think because they were slow turnover items they needed the space. Seem to remember somebody in Germany or Holland buying a few
    There also seems to be two threads running about sub frames at the moment. Maybe you aught to advertise your need on the other thread

    Drill a 6mm hole in the lower center, use the holes at the top to put in any type of rust inhibitor if you have the holes (if not drill again)
    Fill until it drips out of the newly drilled hole...............done.................

    HPIM0795.jpgI know that former MG/Rover dealer Hofstee in Drachten, Holland has two new ( and powdercoated-) subframes. He bought these from me 2 years ago. I tried last year to buy them back but the best price then was retailprice minus 30%! I sold them for 120 euro each.....wish I kept them...
