Does anyone have any good ideas on where to weld the Z cars for increased stability?
I have seen articles on welding the inner are of the engine bay, window lining are and strut towers. Anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks in advance.

Owen,
All the postings I've seen indicate that strut tower braces - front and rear - which are bolt-ons - seem to be the most effective items to improve rigidity of the chassis. Welding in spots without adding additional structure will not accomplish much. Is this a daily driver or are you planning on some serious racing? If it's the former the strut braces are plenty. If it's the latter weld in a full roll carge along with the tower braces and you're probably good to go.
