Would this Pass?


This is a picture of my rear left shock tower. Would this pass an inspection at a track? I am interested in doing autocross at PIR (Portland not Phoenix) but i wasnt sure if this would pass inspection or not.

I would also guess no but have never seen anyone else try with such a rusty one.

I second both responses from Whiteshark and Nick. I wouldn't even drive it until I get that fixed. That's an accident waiting to happen.

so what do you think would be the best way to fix this? find a parts car and chop out the trunk? cut it out and put sheet metal in? whats the best and strongest way?

You need to get new metal from somewhere and have someone weld it in. That will not pass inspection at a track, I wouldn't drive that on the street.
