I remember reading that someone was developing a front brace for the MK1 cross members and I couldn't find anything with a search. It looks as though the front valence has completely separated from the cross-member, which means the front engine mount is extremely week. There are also stress cracks around the intake.
My plan for now is to sand blast the whole deal and weld it back together and weld a plate over the intake for strength.
If someone has plans for a brace, please let me know and I can make a few of them with my dad's pipe bender (he has lots of roll cage fabrication equipment)
and sell them since I'm currently unemployed. If not, I may come up with my own design.
