Foot box plate

Would it be a good or bad idea to weld a piece of 2.5in plate across the front of the foot box for 5 or 6 in to strengthen the steering box mount?

I'm going to galvanize so I would defiantly stitch weld and I do have enough room with the bracket.... Just making sure I'm not missing something.

It will make the mounts in slightly the wrong space.

I can't recall if the SI 86/88 had the crap steering box like an 80in, but I know Tom Bache's SI had an SII/SIIa box which looked the part and did the job.

I'm already using a s2-3 mount that I reinforced, and I bodged together a short s2/3 box hybrid.
The later mount just clears the 200tdi turbo.

I think I can fit a 1/8th inch plate between but if this is not common practice maybe I will just try to bolt it in to be safe.

I have never seen anyone do it other than to patch a hole.
