I am looking forward to this. This got me excited about my car again. Finally going to get the timing belt tensioner, WP gasket, coolant to do the maintenance.

Can't wait to compare this with you car E. Since you have all those chassis mods, this will be a great comparison on the street and auto-x.

Now to pick a color scheme for the car and brace. This is the hardest part.

I like the tension/quick release pins on the heim joints...

PM me a price for 1 complete unit in the bronze color... include the color code so I can have my other bracing bits I am making, along with my custom Wagon Front LCA's I am designing... I am in...

Sorry Bro but I only made one other bar when making my set up and it was sold in a matter of hours after I posted the first bit of this thread.

Also, I dont want to make another one, it was a ton of work and now that its done its awesome but not worth the cost and time involved to make it on a one at a time scale. 18-20 hours of fab plus minor modification of each car to mount the setup. With all my costs for materials it only came out to like $8 an hour in my pocket.
