rear subframe

We dropped the rear subframe mainly because of the cut axles; our theory is that a salvage yard did that in order to roll the car around with a seized differential. (There is great freedom in working on a car that was rescued from the crusher!) Both the differential in the car and the extra diff that came with the car are not usable; the former barely turns (confirming our theory) and the extra one turns freely but has chipped gears (see photo). At a Rivertown Gear Busters parts swap we had picked up five used axles; two have the 3+3 bolt pattern, so we'll raid all five to get two axles that will work. Many thanks to Dave Guard for the media blasting. We're having fun in this "messy" phase while looking forward to the final cleaning and painting of the subframe bits.
