Don’t do this, it will only trap water and look very, well, unprofessional. And it wont help, it will also be damaged by the jack. Use a piece of wood, 2”by3” on top of your jack instead.
If you really want something welded you should replace that piece of the frame with something that has a standing plate inside it.

Best regards, Per

> Some time soonish I’m having a plate welded to the front cross-member of my MkII’s chassis. (For jacking). I grovel under the car, as best I can, and I wonder about the seam running down the centre of the chassis members…..they bulge(?) downward/outwards. And that, presumably, will hinder getting the plate on nice and flat.
> Now, is that seam a hollow bulge which, if ground off flush, would cause the cross-member to split? Or, is the seam a weld? ie the chassis is two U-sections welded together, top and bottom….So, a bit of judicious grinding wouldn’t hurt.
