just looking for second opinion -- i got this cross member for the A14 /A 15 for free and after stripping i could see why it was free. The middle piece is damaged --the right side more than the left [the bolt holes are slightly ripped ---well the one and this caused stress on the other plus one bolt is bent] must have been quite a knock. Soooo can welding work or should i just chuck it ?

middle piece?

Any B110/B120/B140 crossmember from 1974-up works for an A14/A15

if it's badly damaged, you could unpick the towers and weld them to your x-member

yes thats correct D --was thinking of using a sleeve weld it in and take it down --worried the welding will weaken it. I thought about unpicking it but you still gotta weld it again. Oh almost forgot the one bolt is also bent-- mmmm just phoned schus nissan and they said ''discontinued'' DAMN the bakkie [ute] that built south africa and they discontinue it.The 1200/1400 was used all over in the industrial world --now it's kia hyundai,tata,etc that only last a year --this is why i bought a suzuki carry. Okay i'll figure something out --it's either unpick or cut small sleeve type goodies that can take the bolts and weld it in.gudgeon pin --cut off 5mm

Welding won't weaken it -- if it is welded expertly

The good news is that it is not a special bolt. M10 thread, Medium carbon steel (grade 8.8) should be as good or better than original
