Hi, thanks for posting.
I made a drawing of my idea for one of these as well as one for the front.

My drawing looks remarkably just like these you made.

Can I PM you or you PM me about these.

I don't have a current pic of one installed..........it's easy to install........line it up.mark the mounting holes.......drill them and use the fasteners I include. I can leave them in bare metal, in primer or a color of your choice.

Have pics of the front strut brace?
My front strut brace was a straight piece.....however.I had a 4" cowl fiberglass hood allowing me extra room. I built front braces on a case by case basis due to engine combinations/etc.

You got a picture of yours?? I was debating graving a cowl hood just to run a strut bar up front. Did it make a difference in handling?? I’ve heard people say yes and no pretty confusing haha

I used to drive my 92' and 94' SC on road courses................it felt better, less flex/noise, I believe it made a difference.

I got the hood used....was told it was a Fiber concepts hood......the brace went along with the 94' SC when I sold it.................it's in wisconsin now.............the brace was two end brackets built from 2" x 2" x 1/4" angle stgeel and 3/4" I.D. rod stock. I used four 3/8" countersunk allen heads and back up plates to added strength.

That sounds like a killer setup, would of loved to see a picture of the actual brace! Thanks for the tip man I see it’s mandatory to have a cowl hood for this application

Yes....the extra clearance is a gift...I found my original ends pieces and back up plates I used as my set/templates.............could weld you up one..........I think ( not sure) the length of the rod portion was 38" overall would be about 42" end to end. measure the cowl area under the hood..........I would need the overall width where the cowl begins to rise over the flat surface. I also built a hood prop rod with a spherical end on it. I would never use the gas strut rods on a glass hood.......too much stress and can crack it.

if you could that would be great. I don’t have a cowl hood at the moment, but if you could weld up the ends I’d gladly buy em off you and build the bar later when I get a cowl hood.
