Hey guys.

I have a major project on my hands and I fell into a problem with the apron measurning out of spec.

I have bought the Scott Drake curved Monte Carlo bar and I managed to put the front end closer to the messurments I got off of another well maintained mustang from my local Mustang Parts store.

Now I want to futher strengthen and straighten the front end with a good export brace.

The thing is that I dont like the look of the stamp steel ones and the tubular ones are pricey and I wanto to build my own tubular one.

So dose anyone have any measurments or tips on making your own exprt brace?

Or should I stick to the stamp steel type to make sure everything lines up right?

IMHO, you can't go wrong with a good quality brand of export brace.

A lot of homemade braces look like....well, homemade!

I've seen some decent home made ones out there, but also realize that the export braces avail were stamped off the original shelby ones that were built for the car when the specs were new. This means it's a CHORE to make it fit on your old car, but when you've put it on there, it'll shove that front end back where it needs to be, and that seems to be what you're looking for.

IMO they don't look too bad. I think this is a scott drake one
