Anyone know of a supplier (other than Mazda Australia) who have a front strut brace to suit BJ Astina?

TIA

Might have a go at making one myself (not CF though) there'd be less than $100 in materials required looking at the alternative designs.

I'm figuring that the most pricey part for the way I will do it (so it is adjustable) will be the rod end bearings. About $50 for the pair if they are PTFE lined.

All the rest is just labour only. I was going to go with a mild steel CDS tube for the crossbar and powder coat it.

Sure beats the $700+ cost for the factory brace!!!
