custom export brace
#1
Does anyone have any pics of 71-73 cars with an export brace? Im yet to find a supplier for one so im getting the feeling in going to have to fab something myself im just wanting some ideas.my bay will be color matched to the exterior paint color with a battery relocation and everything tucked as possible.im really not wanting to run the wide factory shock tower braces if I can come up with a better looking option.

I have the MPG brace and it is not as sturdy as I would like. The tabs bend easily and the cross boar won't clear my distributor or my AC.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Oooh, thanks from me too. I was about to order it but if t doesn't clear the distributor it does me no good. I already have one here that doesn't fit.

Why does it seem so difficult for a supplier to make something that fits correctly? How difficult can it be, find a a car with ac and fit it. They could advertise them as engine specific so that you know exactly what itll fit without taking the risk.id be pissed spending $315 and not being able to even modify it to make it fit

I have a 302 so probably the smallest engine dimensions available but I'd still like something that fits with room to grow.

The disease is everywhere you go and almost on everything we buy these days.. I overheard an older woman ask a floor clerk in Walmart where the "Dust Busters" were located.. The clerk asked "what's a Dust Buster"..
There are many times I have to go to AutoZone or Napa and the counter "kids" can't come up with a part I need because it's not shown in the computer.. They don't have the skills to use or even know what a cross reference guide is.. If it's not the eye candy displayed in the store, the employees can, at times, be clueless.
