Wow.....that's not good. Why was it cut? Anything can be fixed, and more detailed pictures would help us assess better.

I don't believe it was cut, the car was in some type of accident but the rest of the car looks fine for the most part. Never noticed that last year, crack was probably hidden with that gunk on top when I bought it. I'll take more pictures

You understand that these cars have no frame, body is unitized. Unitized is just sheet metal welded together to form a rigid structure.
It all looks pretty normal to me. I would just add a strut tower brace.

Bright side, that part of the inner structure doesn't have much to do with the overall soundness of the car.

Downside, if it can twist any it will through your sheetmetal out of alignment.

It would be fairly easy to fix. Post more pictures when you take the fender off.

Looks to me it can all be welded. If you do not weld it, it will only get worse.

Dude... it's already JB Welded and we all know it doesn't get stronger than THAT.

Just pull the clip and check it out all over, from underneath too. If that's all there is it's not that bad and you can clean it up and weld it for real.
