Default Custom master cylinder brace..

Something I modelled up on CAD on my lunch at work. Still need some tweaking. Looking to make it out of 10 ga. steel (or possibly 6061), powder coated. Will use a screw for adjustement. Will hopefully have one made up to test out in the next week or two.
Any suggestions? comments?

1. We have a forum for custom fabrication work
2. I have no problem having a discussion about how to build or make something, but the minute you think about selling them you need a vendor account.

I will move this to the custom fabrication forum where you might get a little more input from others like yourself who like to design and fabricate parts for their car.

A guy about 45 min from me just outside of Collingwood (I'm in Ontario). The company I work for uses him for all of their custom cutting/bending work, so I just design up my own components and get him to make them up.

To keep the part clean. The welds are pretty solid and penetrate right through.

very nice.
i was going to have one made for my honda accord 01. they dont make one for that car. sucks for me.
i did find a local guy who welds steel and aluminum plus has a cnc machine.
is there anything i shoild be aware of or make sure i should ask him?

i was also curious where are you going to get that little red piece averyone gets in the brace package. it sits right up against the m/c and the long screw.
it just always seems to be red.

I would assume that red screw seat you are talking about would be manufactured for their specific application. They all look to be turned out of aluminum and anodized red. Personally I don't think it is a necessity unless your screw is not perpendicular to the brake cylinders surface, in which case it will be a lot of pressure on an extremely small surface area.

Will you be doing up the design for them, or will the shop be measuring it up?

So here is the final product. I made up another one because I liked the wrinkle red instead of the gloss black.

it would be a combined effort.

Yeah, I really like it in red with the wrinkle. Think i'm going to try one in textured black.

Next project... front fender cowl braces. Have a pair of prototypes made up. Just have to try them on the car
