1 tip also, when the garage has stripped the underneath, and cleaned off all the crud, paint, protective layer, and rot, go look at whats left, where they are going to weld from, you may just find you are ending up with a patch job, welded to what remains of original metal which is likely also corroded, and have a good look, see if the money you are throwing into the restoration is firstly going to be enough of a repair, and if it is, is that going to be job done for now, or will it be getting more welding in the near future. Far too easy to throw money at patching and fall into a position where so much has been spent already you have no option but to keep going

Perhaps you could tell us at what point in the video the tool was used to REMOVE the bolt like you claimed?

I’d personally like to thank you. This is the best thread on here in ages.

I've only used mine to remove 16mm 20mm bolts on site, **** knows how I pulled it off now, you lot are starting to make me feel superior, I'm literally talking to people that can't for the love of money figure out how they could remove that easily accessible bolt and trying to tell me the aluminium subframe had corroded, unreal
seriously pal you need to get you head out your backside on this one

your WRONG ,yes you can use a multi tool to get the bolt out ,no bother ,but NON of us would if they hadnt have tryed a spanner before hand ,which the bloke whos doing the work on you car has ,but since the subframe is in a bad way in that area ,its a known comman issue on earlier cars, its snapped off ,no ifs no buts ,the bolt is a welded washer cam bolt to allow you to adjust the geometry on the rear end ,if its seized ,which it has it would place even more stress on weak bit of aluminuim ,there for its only escape is to snap whats been snapped off

some of us on here have been taking these cars apart for all most as long as they have been coming in to this country ,to comment on something youve absolutly no idea about isnt making you look superior ,infact quite the opposite

I was alluding to what I assume would be four pages of bad legal advice, I wasn't commenting on you at all.

While cant you imagine the frame with the arm and bolt still in, cut either side the arm will drop to the floor, or if you have the subframe already removed it can be pulled away

Aluminium*offers a rare combination of valuable properties. It is one of the lightest metals in the world: it's almost three times lighter than iron but it's also very strong, extremely*flexible*and corrosion resistant because its surface is always covered in an extremely thin and yet very strong layer of oxide film

https://www.aluminum.org/strength-aluminum

Works on a couple of evos knows everything about the properties of metals except everything said is wrong, if you can, read that it isn't very long

Aluminium doesn't weaken with age some of the tallest skyscrapers use aluminium a lot older than our cars, planes! Ships etc, sound like the type that will argue black is white realise your wrong but carry on, if I'm wrong I'm more intrigued and I want to learn more, I admit when I'm wrong but so far I have found no evidence of aluminium cording or getting weaker, you even made me doubt what I learned at college for a moment
