Hi all, just discovered this crack in the inner wing after getting it back from paint. So removing the whole front again and replacing the inner wing isn't really an option. So what do I do? My mate had a welder so I could give it a go myself or is a new panel a must? Thanks

Welding it back together is fine as long as you’re a competent welder.


You should be replacing your rubber front subframe mounts while you at it as this sort of cracking only really happens when the mounts are shot.

if that's the shock absorber i can see between the subframe tower and the inner wing, then it would appear you're missing a section of the inner wing ?
