I've been following the other posts about this topic just to learn something new, well I was changing my oil yesterday and guess what I found.

So who has the latest update on this project?
I guess some welding is in order for the time being... I'll get some pics up of the cracks tomorrow...

Re: Front Cross Member brace (wolf rocco)

Until the brace is ready, most people drill a stop hole and then weld the crack shut. It's very temporary though. Also, I've heard the Eurosport 4pt subframe helps.

Re: Front Cross Member brace (VWJerm)

From what I understand (as with mine), find the front motor mount and start working your way in either direction

Re: Front Cross Member brace (16V_Scirocco_GTX)

Thanks for posting the Pics!
16V_Scirocco_GTX is my beta tester...I will be the one selling these. Still working on a few last logistics before we ramp up production...and the results of the test...as you can see, his crossmember is pretty bad...
As soon as I am ready to begin taking orders, you guys will know

Here are some pics of the first install on my 83 8v rocco:
