Diff cover

I found a spare 8.8 cover in my garage and I had an idea. I started welding scrape plate on it trying to make it stronger. nothing on the right is welded or cut to size, just mocked up for now. I would continue to cover the rest of the bottem. tell me what you think, am I wasting my time?

like i said do it as a core charge type thing, you send them the completed one and they send you theirs. i think that would be a good way to do it, and charge about 50 bucks for the steel and fab work? i dont know how much that stuff would normally run, but i know a new heavy duty cover most times is 200 or more. just a suggestion on how i would do it

Looks sweet man!! I just did something very similiar to the cover on my 60.
Only thing is you gotta make sure that your welds don't warp the surface where it seals to the housing.
