I would have drilled the end of the crack at least. The most stress in any crack is at the very end of it. Drilling a hole at the tip of the crack, be it wood, steel, plastic, whatever, significantly reduces or eliminates the stress riser. It even appears the weld bead wasn’t taken back all the way to the very tip but hard to see, you could still do this and just spot weld it for peace of mind.

Y’all are really in your feelings about him fixing his own car. Don’t act like y’all ain’t any shady shit once or twice either lol. It’s his car. If this how he chooses to run the show, let him do it.

Just from being a car nut and safety. Either one found an authorized dealer for the replacement part and pay them little extra cash. Or completely cut that section out and fabricate identical piece. That whole area metal has been stressed multiple micro stress fractures. Almost makes me sick on how you went about fixing a structural piece of the body.

Sounds like a lot of jealous haters on here. Labeling the car as unsafe or a waste of money is just a sad attempt to convince themselves that your amazing find is a bad thing. Now that is the definition of insanity.

I don't know anything about frame work, but would it have been a good idea to first reinforce the anchor point and then pull from it?

It’s ok for NOW! It’s been fixed. It’s a nice car put it back together see how it goes.... drive normally around town etc personally I would not drive fast in a public situation. unless it was on a track as the car moving the loading and de loading of the suspension MAY cause stress fractures etc. BUT I have seen some metal parts fixed that no one would thought work and it has so what do you do? Try it and see!

That's some shitty engineering on the part of Audi if you ask me. This could easily be reinforced to begin with to prevent the failure.

I didn't see you measure the other side of car to ensure it is aligned, if it's off 1/16 you will have serious pull from one side or the other.

I love all the annalist comments...lol... Its a simple physics and repair which in absolute no way affected the frame, squareness, suspension, handling, windshield, door seals / gaps, ect.. hence it will pass inspection easily... In all actuality the repaired driver side suspension area weld is 200 plus times stronger now than the right side.. only error i saw in video is while he was there I would've had him weld a support in on right side ?!? Nice work !!

i like that you had your welder reinforce it and then repeat on the other side, technically making it a better than stock.

For a repair like this, the car should go to a body shop that has a Frame Machine. So precise measurements can be taken and it pulled correctly. Then welded. Instead This is like a DIY driveway repair - which is dangerous. Its not repaired in the manner that is Safe!!

Should have put a rectangular piece of metal with holes in it across the top of the frame rail and used that as a pulling point instead of the frame rail itself

What’s your life worth? I’d suggest that you start with thinking PERIOD, rather than “thinking In reverse” high-performance sports cars with dodgy frame repairs = rip Why do you think it was totaled? Definitely wouldn’t buy a car from this guy....

If it only cost you 500 why not fix both sides u completely disassembled the whole front end so why not pay another 500 dollars and if the car was only 7000 dollars less why not just buy one that's not totaled without a salvage title I fixed my Dodge Ram finders on both sides and that cost more than that !
