Unibody Beef

I'm a big fan of strengthening the unibody on vehicles (which is why 2 of my previous unibody vehicles had hitches installed even though I never tow with them) and was wondering if anyone out there is doing this to their alero other than strut tower bars?

I'm talking about welding body seems, making subframe/fender braces, etc.

Useful as deer repellant! They will bounce off like in this video that happened near me recently:

Why so you can bump your shins in the garage?

I have used strut tower bars and subframe braces before and loved what they can do and I have a pretty nice stick welder at my disposal and might start experimenting in scrap metal braces for other parts. Nothing fancy but somewhat effective is all I'm going to be going for, but got to shoot low when you got very little welding skills lol

I'm also interested in fender bars/braces, as they seem pretty stupid looking at first, but in some vehicles can be the most effective brace point. I don't know how weak our cowl/firewall areas are in these N-Bodies, so it might not be as effective for us. I think most people avoid them because it's too hard to show them off without running fenderless lol

I am also very interested in the W-Body strut tower to core support bars, but if I can't find any I'll probably just make a crappy equivalent myself.
