The replacement subframe from V8Roadsters arrived on Tuesday.
On Wednesday night, Bill and I swapped it into the car. That's the broken one on the floor. It took about three hours total to do the swap. The jigs at V8R are obviously pretty good, because it slotted right into place with no hassle whatsoever. The biggest hassle was dealing with the fact that I routed the oil cooler and power steering lines through the middle of the motor mount brackets, so those had to be disconnected.
The car's going in for an alignment tomorrow morning and then it'll be as good as new.
