Rover 416GSI 1990 Front Subframe

Does anybody know if these subframes are available, second hand even. Mine is still OK, but showing a fair bit of rust so I need to plan ahead here. If all else fails, I suppose I could get it removed and shot blasted. Guy O

As you stated, get it blasted, fix what needs fixing if needed and then get it Powdercoated.

If you struggle, send it to us and we’ll sort it.

Hi
I have a 1990 Rover 416Gsi with a rusty front (front) subframe. It's been removed by my local garage as I was hoping to get it shotblasted , powder coated and refitted. However, the rust has apparently progressed too far to be easily repaired. I have tried to source a new one (carbodypanels etc) but so far no luck. You have suggested that an option might be to send it to you to 'get it sorted'. What do you think? I could send you a picture if you like.

If it's too far gone, then an option would be to source a 214 (i.e. K-Series) subframe and get the engine mounts transferred. There are even still some NOS 214 subframes about.
