Re: MKII Megane Subframe bolt threaded


Well Originally i was going to leave it with just the original bolt with the cleaned up threads as it felt good and i could get a FT (@@@king tight) fit. But then i thought the threads will be weaker and it is a rather important bolt so stuck the second nut on top to re-enforce the original threads.

Then managed to make a return spring for the handbrake cable with a spring left over from when I changed the pads on the Cinquecento. Lots of cutting and bending but it works well :P

All in all a productive few days, just need to mow the dam lawn now
