Restoring 85 MK2. Some pieces have been located right here on this Forum and others from here and there.:)
Thus far I have replaced entire A/C system, complete brake system, spark plugs, plug wires, tires, starter, alternator, sunroof motor, headliner, Side trim moldings, fiberglass rocker panels and a host of other mechanical items I cant remember. The project stalled after portion of frame cracked. Some pics attached of car and refurbished parts.

Time and Money. Fabrication shop has a plan. I just need the money to pay for their time.:ROFLMAO: I have a donor car they may pull the subframe off of or they might jut fabricate something. IDK either way might have to pull a running engine. :cautious:

Yowww that cracked frame portion is rough to look at. What is your path forward now?
I had that on my 85 back in the day. That thing broke and allowed the wheel to shoot forward into the fender flare destroying it. Local shop just welded some angle iron on it and saved the day. No prob. Never got around to replacing the fender flare tho...

I did a write up on here... on replacing the Flare Studs with Stainless Steel... U can do it yourself if U are somewhat mechanically minded.

It's waaaay too expensive to ship the Flares... but if someone lives near the Toronto/ Kitchener-Waterloo area... I can do it for you...

Anyway...IMHO.. no need to throw out perfectly good flares.. when the only thing wrong is around $15 worth of Stainless Steel "Studs"

Cheers,
