This is a shot of the reason why I replaced the subframe in my HG Prem.

I believe that the two side mounts weren't to bad, there was a bit of rust that I cleaned out from the cross member. But the front mount has rusted through.

Thanks for the offer. I've already replaced it with one that i found that wasnt to bad and got it sand blasted, Zink, and Powder coated.

cheers Gary.

Im in Caboolture just north of brisbane, not so much desperate for good rails its just i got a set sitting hear that arnt that bad really and if i can find some bits to fix them up with i wouldnt mind doing it. As for my rails off my monaro Im still waiting for the penel beater to chase the good set up that he was offerd. Only thing that pisses me off is the kingswood rails are slightly difrent to the gts rails and my gts rails being south african are slightly difrent to the australain ones.

I thought they where the same but it was pointed out to me that my gts rails have extra slots in them at the front that must have been there for running cooling air pipes to the brakes or something for the race cars, I was told that all gts's should have these but not 100% sure if thats true. Other than that mine have the holes drilled in difrent places than the australian cars where the rails bolt onto the fire wall so im thinking they had a slightly difrent jig over there.

I have twin light Brougham rails for mine as i'm not fussed about original but like to know these things. I've got the rails off the Munro (HK GTS) out the back and will have a suss but i couldn't guarantee they are the originals anyway as my cars been rebuilt at least twice before.
Very interesting though and i might just pop over to Fastlane and put the query to Byron Rich and Dr Terry as i'm sure one of them'll know.
If i find out fer sure, i'll post the findings here for you.
Late EDIT :- As for Africa using a diffrent jig, I think the cars were built here and only assembled over there but again, i'm not sure.

Need to know what model exactly that your Monaro is and if a 6 or 8.
Might be worth your while clicking on the link below and joining the discussion about these rail diferences. Warren Turnbull certainly knows his monaros and his input i would consider gospel. (I'm 80737k over there).

I had a read over there and keen to see what is determined.
I've checked my old Munro rails and all the other sets i have here but no slots in any of them. If the slots are in fact for assisting in the cooling of front brakes (And actually made a diference), I'd be looking at cutting some into my subframe for the same benefits.
Anyway if you can do some pics, you should put them in your shed :).
