Looks like he did a fairly decent job of it but that makes it almost wider than it is long. I would be skeptical of the integrity of it though.

I sure would be too. The transmission/prop-shaft tunnel is a critical player in the stiffness of a Sprite.

I think it looks pretty good, though I think better at about half the extra width. I have seen small blocks in unwidened Sprites, though I am sure some surgery of the innnards is required.
