    65 subframe connectors, worth it or not?

    Hi
    Looking into subframe connectors for my 65, just wondering if they are a good addition or a waste of time and effort, Iím not going on the track but I do have a tendency to drive the sh#t out of everything.

    appreciate any thoughts or experiences

    thanks

        I dont like the ines that you open up the frame rail like a can to insert it in

        I like the bolt on that you then weld

        I have a few sets in stock if you want to measure them

              Ok no worries just wondering, I must admit Iím not keen on cutting the frame rails however I may be able to modify the design to sit over them as per the tcp ones mmmmm. I need to work from home lol!!

                I was saying I don't like the ones that require cut frame rails. Think they are called Tinnerman.

                I like the ones that have flanges that go over them and you weld them on. I like the square ones as they give a great surface to jack on

                  Sorry to jump in on this.
                  I'm interested in this discussion ,as I am in exactly the same position and was also looking at Daze Cars design.
                  https://dazecars.com/dazed/sub-frame.html
                  BTW (I have drawn it up in Autocad, and can add metric dimensions if you need).
                  Peter what is your concern with sliding box section connectors into the end of the existing rails and plug welding to then, and also running a bead around the open can end? I would have though continuing the line of the existing rail was a better than overlapping to one side?

                    Hi Ste
                    Ooooo Autocad I like a bit of cad Iíll PM ya if youíd care to share. Iím only down the road from you, Iíve looked at the mike Maier ones they look awesome but expensive, Iím in engineering so I kind of come from the approach of Ďi Can do that myselfí well hopefully! Iím not sure what structural issues cutting the frame would have one way or the other to be fair

                      Dazecars tech articles are brilliant. I used their template and tracking settings for a Shelby drop and the detail they go into is great.

                      Regarding the frame connectors, I would have no problem with doing as they suggest. Removing the frame rail end caps will make no difference to the structure.

                      Cheers, Ron

                        Frame connectors are on my to do list this winter, as are performance strut rods, probably global west...looking to tighten the old girl up this year

                          Yeah daze is a great resource I made some adjustable strut rods based around his design and just ordered the bearings to make some roller perches. Next step is the frame connectors though I may tweak it a bit to fit over the frame rather than cut into it??

                            I used to fabricate these from these plans (with a couple of mods) and sold a dozen or so via the Forum and added them to my two 66's. Neat design and a perfect mounting point for rear radius arms.

                              Sawyles, Happy to share, I've drawn it as if the steel was 2Ē, but in reality I can only really get 50mm box. PM me.
