thanks Tom, You are correct. I thought it was the link to the Chassis Stiffner that was pre-made and for sale.

I've decided since my new (to me) 1974 spider is going to get bead-blasted, rotisserie style, I might as well practice my own welding skills with at least 2 1" tubes running parallel to the frame. I will have to bolt on the rest after the weird headers and exhaust are in place.

Unlike Ben's approach with a hole for the exhaust pipe to go through (hello rattles) I am going to create a cross member with a bend.

Old thread. But I was just there and I don't like this guy Ben. He charges too much and doesn't know what he's talking about half the time. He just tried to sell me on the same thing, and all he does is price gouge, hopefully the owner of the black spider with the stiffening kit in his shop is not getting shafted. He's a goblin in the Alfa world. Oh well...

If the underside of your car needed work and you can afford the cost, I'd do this. That thread linked gave a very positive review!

BUT why do you guys need your Spiders to have moderner car stiffness? Are you miss understanding that they are old classic cars and never going to out handle a modern car. Maybe returning to the original skinny and tall tyres/wheels would restore the "it's for fun" aspect of the car and she'd be stiff enough
