Lots of corrosion on that subframe.
Nice to see that I am not the only person that carries out most of the work in the fresh air.

i'd have to agree with Steve you'll get a far better finish with it sandblasted mate, there's a place down our way that does it and their quite reasonable. if your interested let me know and i'll send you their details
BETTER TO HAVE A CALIBRA AND NOT NEED ONE, THAN NEED A CALIBRA AND NOT HAVE ONE!!!
