broken sub-frame

how much should it cost to weld in the subframe reinforcement plates on my e36? Does anybody know approximate labour time to do this?

If we do a groupbuy for the sponsors, RMP Motors will be doing the work. I'll be doing my subframe reinfocements in the upcoming weeks.

The reinforcement plates need to be welded to the chassis, that's the only possible solution to fix a torn subframe mount....well, aside from getting a full cage welded in which ties to the subframe mounts.

I have a rear subframe reinforcement kit for sale if someone wants it ... it was ordered by mistake (need the front!). Let me know if someone needs this ... I can ship asap.
