"Looking for more rigidity in my GT body I came up with an easy
modification of welding another cross-member under the front of each floor plan parallel
to the existing one, connecting the sill section to the middle chassis rail. The
cross-member repair sections are available for a few pounds and require only shortening.
This area has always concerned since I saw a MGBV8 in which the drivers legs had
been crushed after a particularly bad accident. The only resistance to the sill entering
the foot well is the floor pan. This modification makes the foot-well a box, and has the
double effect of increasing body rigidly and increasing driver/passenger safety."
full description of the conversion is covered on my website.
