  • Any suppliers of k-series frame side plates?

    Does anyone or any where sell the side plates for mounting an mgf / metro frame to the mini? Also with the shock mounts for coil overs.

    If not, does anyone having the drawings for the dimensions?

    Also, any suppliers or drawings of the rear braces from subframe to floor?

          Anyone have the measurements of the hole centres?

            make the brackets then when you think you have them in place spray paint through holes then drill best way unless your buying them.

              Awesome, well done for posting that up. Although bolt hole measurements would be useful...

                The bracket shown in the drawing is for a shock mounting, the photos in the rover guide notes on this site show a much bigger and wider mount for a coilover.

                  Hello! New to the forum but done tones of reading/ looking at all your impressive builds! Just wondering if anyone has a better/ updated template for these? I’d just like to make sure that the subframe is in the correct position.
