BTW, I ran across these while researching handling issues, and wanted to bring the link back…

I knew you could get weld-on replacements for the pan stiffener’s that were added to the outside edges of the stock VW pan when convertible bodies were added by Karmann-Ghia, the coach builder for all the cabriolets (aka convertibles). ¬†Convertibles usually require stronger frames because there is no framework around the top of the windows nor the metal top itself to reinforce the frame, and resist twisting forces…
However, here’s a company that offers bolt-on stiffeners. ¬†So, if you’re getting a lot of body flex (doors rattling is one indication), these might be worth considering….
If you’re seriously into autocrossing or gymkana, these should likely be on your Christmas list…
