    Great work on the shock mount strengthening. That certainly shouldn't bow like the original!

    I had one Spyder, and three Safety Devices chassis, and none of them had strut tops like that.
    They were all like this:

    Mine's almost 30 years on the road, 90k Miles and no signs of any bowed suspension mounts... The only suspension repair it's had in that time is a strengthening plate needed on the front link that wasn't up to the job of uprated brakes. Plate supplied by Gerry as a recall mod if my memory is correct!

    Yea I've noticed from a lot of pics that most cars seem to have some little triangle gussets at each end of the plate, mine didn't have that, maybe a la upgrade? anyway like I said I needed a dirty great big hole in the top to pass the reservoirs through, and even in the alfa it wasn't not uncommon to get completely airborne on some of the rally stages, so I bit of extra strength in that area can't hurt
    cheers
