if it was me i'd just cut the cage out and build a new one and don't tie the frames if you dont have to but if you do use the smallest material allowed to do it. uni bodies are designed to flex and if you take the flex out you will fight a push all year long. we have been running nova's for years and tried to make one a full frame car and it was the worst handleing car we had and that was the only change we made.

I RUN A CAMERO CHASSIS AND AM TIED TOGETHER AND HAD SOME PUSH PROBLEMS IN MY FIRST 2 RACES AFTER THAT ADJUSTED IT OUT. TIE THEM TOGETHER IT WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE.

HEY STONEWALL JUST SOMETHING I NOTICED. WITH THOSE STEEL PLATES ON BOTH SIDES YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET ANY ROTATIONAL STRENGTH YOU SHOULD PLACE A PLATE ALLONG THE BOTTOM AND WELD IT TO THE NEW PLATES YOU JUST PUT IN IT WILL MAKE IT WORK ALOT BETTER.

Good idea! That's what I thought to. Capping it off like that will keep the mud out of it also. I think I lightened the car by about 10 lbs. with all the dirt that came out of that rusted hole!
