Has anyone welded gussets between the pipe and A-pillars?

I want to add gussets between the body and the cage but the interior panel of the A-pillars is a high strength steel which is prone to weakening an cracking after welding. Has anyone welded gussets to them? If so have the welds held up?

My boxster has these gussets. This build is at least 5 years old and no visible cracks.

Thank you for sharing this useful information.

It would be useful to hear from more people to see if anyone has had problems.
