Hello to all,

I am doing a refurbish to my swift gti mk3 cage and chassis.

My bodyshop tech recommended that after give the measures to 0mm tolerance to reinforce the front with some triangles on both side of the engine bay to reinforce the longeron like the photos below, since always I turn the car to right the car touches the tyre inside wheel arc on the left wheel and the measurements has only 5mm differences and the car feels very loose even after the upper and lower AA on front and rear.

Does anyone has some more ideas or points to reinforce since I am doing this work now?

Does anyone made something like that could share?

that looks good
you can also go through the a-pillar and run a bar along the bottom near the seat tie it into the b-pillar(attach it to your current brace you built) as well as tie one across behind the dash between the two sides (attach that in as well)
