I was asked if the M8 inserts would fit into the sub frame.
My knee jerk reaction was yes but I wanted to be sure so...
I had a sub frame that had a hole so wallered out that a M6 insert fell through the hole :o
Obviously that wasn't gonna work :lol:
Looking at the next pic it appears as if there is enough room.

Perfect... The big drawback is the oddball size bolt but better that than some of the back yard repairs I have seen employed 8-)
