I was asked if any cutting or welding is needed to install these. No.You could weld them in if you desired. I have upgraded from the older braces from 5/16" grade 8 to 3/8" grade 8 just to provide more gripping power. I have not had a brace fail.

Ok........I now have five Rear shock tower braces ready to go.............working on my front strut brace idea as well, need a stock SC to test fit this new design idea. I have found a local powder coater, I'm expecting an estimate for cost soon. It will cost more, but for those wanting them powder coated....I'm trying.

Ok..........estimate costs for powder coating runs between $25.oo to $35.oo depending on the conditions

Well..they turned the brace around in just four days. The finish is amazing, I'll be back there.

Ok......for the first time since I began building these years ago....I have a buyer stating the brace was short. I was feeling confused and bummed out.......so looking at the braces.....I see an opportunity not a problem. I have wanted to add a gusset the them, but it restricts access to the mounting bolts. I have a plan......and will begin it Monday by adding a larger pipe over the 3/4" I.D. I currently use and will double the strength at each end where I believe the majority of stress would be applied. Anyone interested...........send me the distance from the VERTICAL tower surface about an inch below the top edge. fo your car. I will also build these to a closer tolerance per car. Thanks!
