well me and my buddy are mocking some up as we speak, i will have pics up on Monday or Tuesday. We are not sure what stock we are using, eather 2 inch tube, or 1 inch solid. the i inch holds up better, leaves you with more room. any comments? ideas? should it have plates that go all the way around or are the half round ones ok? ideas on the bolt up locations? and any other ideas on what else we could fab up. fender braces? something to go from the strut tower to the rad support? any ideas are welcome. thanks for your time guys!

Steve.

P.s i hope he dosent get pissed im makin some and jackin this thread?!?

I have a used one up for sale. Condition is very nice with the only exception being very slight coating wear at the top of the 2 firewall reinforcement tabs (slight hood rub). Lets say $140 shipped. E-mail me at

I broke down and bought a dc sports CS-2 strut bar months ago. Version 2 build thread has pics. No firewall brace, but it's definitely a solid brace!
