IRS Hybrid subframe ready!

Yesterday was welding time! Finally, the subframe is ready to go!

right side from below:
The IRS brackets were spot welded on all corners first, to prevent warpage, then the long seams were done - most of them in one go! 
All welds have a very good penetration and will be left as they are. They look better then the welding that VW did in the days...

Once, again, without my buddy Ralf - who did professional welding for quite some time - the subframe would look really bad, I tried it again yesterday, but it takes a lot of practice to get such a result! Hats off to Ralf!

I will mock up the frame with the running gear to check drive shaft clearance to the frame horns.

The next steps will be a good cleaning + wire brushing and than a lick of gloss black paint!

    It holds, that is important.
    When it looking good, is not bad.
