It looks kinda flimsy with all of those holes all over too.

I'd weld those all up for strength. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/KMA.gif)

I am awaiting a reply from Scotty to see if he has been able to locate my crossmember. I ended up getting one from a 4, not the 6 one. I didn't realize the difference until Jim spotted it. Apparently the 4's are more rounded and the 6's are more squared off. Hopefully Scotty was able to locate it.

Actually this bucket and brace were previously replaced with one off of a car from a later year. The later ones have this notch in them, someone else might know why. I have my thoughts but...
I welded it up so it appears correct.

What a disaster. It looks like the radius is kind of messed up in the middle there. It's going to look horrible once painted. I'd start over.

It looks fantastic. Don't want to take away from the magic, but when I do these things and am lucky enough to have them look good on the top side, I worry about the underside. Did that come out smooth too? Not that it matters a lot, but it is a challenge for an amateur like me. Of course filler helps, and in that situation I think it justified. Looks like access is easier with the front off.

Is that a picture of my front end parts when it was first removed at Scotty's? If that is the case, that is the correct crossmember for a Six, right? I wish I had a pic of the two; 4 and 6 side by side.

(after comparing photos of a 4 and 6 cross member, one can clearly see the ends of my crossmember, removed from my car, are indeed squared off and correct for a 6.)

Great- I will send him that picture. We got a 4 cylinder crossmember when we picked up my car. I wish all the parts had been marked with my name or something. That would have saved a lot of grief.

OK, in case anyone wants to know the difference between a 4 cylinder car crossmember and a 6 cylinder car crossmember, here you go:

This is a picture of the stock 4 cylinder crossmember end:

Here is a stock 6 cylinder car crossmember end:

In the above pictures you can clearly see the end of the 6 crossmember is kind of squared off while the 4 crossmember is round. Easy peasy to differentiate.

Here is a close up shot, (sorry it got blurry when I zoomed in on it) of the rack that came off my 6 - it is clearly a correct rack for my car:

Hey Ben - Yeah, this was a new one for me too. By the way, Jim, (Banananose) is the one who knew this and caught this. I believe the Six crossmember may be the same as a 911 but I am not certain of that. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Do you "need" a 911 cross member, or only if you want to stay as close as possible to a factory 914/6?

Hopefully Scotty still has my correct, original 6 crossmember sitting in his shop. I have sent him the pictures and a request to locate and ship it to me. I appreciate the offer. I want to keep my parts on my car whenever possible. Especially the Six specific parts. I don't know if one really "needs" a specific 914-6 or possibly 911 crossmember, but my car is a real Six so I am trying to keep those things correct. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)
