    S14a rear bomerang mount repair

    S14a rear bomerang mount is rusty
    Is there any repair panels for carrying out this repair?
    Or just start cutting it and rebuild with sheet metal
    I have attached a picture

    Have a look at my project thread. I rebuilt it all. Mine was no where near that bad. To answer your question, there are no pre made bits for it. You will have to make them. Angle grinder and steel does it

    I got a repair section with a captive stud to oem spec from a member on here, not sure if he still does them? But failing that, most people just poly or solid mount rear subframe, then ditch boomerang anyway as theyíre then redundant....

    Just a word of warning to ďmintĒ cars out there.... if boomerang or rear sill/lower arch is rusting out or a little scabby, chances are the inner sills are already rotten (just not showing on outters yet) so as prevention is better than cure and if youíd like to keep ďmintĒ whilst doing welding it might be worth cutting off outters and checking condition of inners before they get very bad

    I’d still run the boomerang mounts when using polly bushes personally.

    It was spicyweasle who used to do all the repair bits. I think he stopped a long time ago however. Not hard to make it all yourself if you are happy to spend the time and have a little imagination and will.

    Thatís the guy crazysx! His username was making me draw a complete blank then yeah he stopped due to personal situation from memory, wasnít sure if heíd started doing a few bits again or still taking a break as I havenít really been active for a while tbh? Although as I purchased some of his sections, even though you can make yourself, Iíll vouch that his were spot on lol and loads better than I couldíve crafted lol

    And Chris, Iíve heard a few say that with polys, heard a few say otherwise.... but personally wonít ever run polys on any of mine think solids feel better and are safer on a rwd (especially if driven hard)..... so if thereís doubt, to me thatís another plus for solid mounting rear

    Yes there is no doubting his skills. I am the same as you, not on here often. I bought my outer sills from him. I think they were one of the last few he did. Not sure there would be enough demand now.

    Although I think there are a few sellers on ebay for sills.

    Fair enough pal, I remember you used to be active when I was tbh lol yeah I was same, think I got his last lot, had 1 boomerang mount and full length outter sills.... I needed both boomerang mounts welded in the end, so garage fitted his one side, then just blank plate the other, so couldnít fit mounts if I wanted then they chopped one rear section to over plate both rear sills, so was a total waste of specific panels yeah Iíve seen a few guys selling sill sections on fleabay since..... not sure on quality or fit? Especially when ka skills are pretty damn perfect and under £20
