I just bought a 98 Formula 3. It had some homemade footgrips on it. I removed these today and discovered that there is a crack that runs from the running board up the side of the tunnel about 3-4 inches. Obviousily Im concerned about this, but is this something that I should be worried about. Can it be welded? Thanks for any info.

I would have somebody experienced with aluminum welding do that, plus add some type of reinforcement to it. Maybe a small aluminum plate or sheet that is riveted, or welded right over it. Anything is better than nothing.

Definately go with what megaman said, I'd think you'd be all set then. I used to have a 84 Phazer that had a rip in the side of the tunnel. The previous owner simply put a piece of steel over the rip, drilled holes on each side of it, and bolted it on. I never had a problem with it the whole time I owned it.
