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