Or How I Plan To Make My Own Upper Strut Brace; After following Wzabrouski's thread on "Rear Chassis Brace" and seeing Marks' slick M7 USB on Orangecrush, I decided I might take a shot at making my own. This will be a construction project I plan on performing over the next several weekends and I will take lots of pic's documenting the steps. Today, June 6th, 2010 Took Fungo down to the shop today. I started out by taking bolt hole pattern measurements of the strut towers. Created a cad drawing of the layout. It's much easier to add and make modifications to the design while on paper. After narrowing down the paper concept, I taped the image on a piece of light gauge steel, transferred all the bolt holes and cut out a test sample. This was used to verify all the hole locations. Some of the larger holes look like that don't line up. This is due to the angle I had to take the picture, they do line up. This last picture today is of the final design taped to a couple of pieces of 11 gage (.120") T304 stainless steel. If all goes well, these will be cut out bent and welded into RH and LH strut tower mounts for the cross bar attachment. That's it for today.
