Thank you and I hear ya. The reason I did the seam welding first is because there are seams under the strut tower brace.

Seam welding isn't a magic silver bullet to be honest. I think the seam welding and strut bracing yield comparable results (18% and 10% respectively in torsion).

Believe me, the car is still plenty flexible despite the seam welding. If it was a full race cage tied into the suspension, then I would say, "Yeah, not fair!"
