haha, no problem. His trunk brace actually does works pretty well though.
It looks like there is a greater demand for B14 fender braces then B13? I'd test fit one, but I would like to be sure that the brace can be reasonably modified to fit a B14. Here is a pic of the trunk brace.

I need a set for my B13, can I weld them in? I think someone mentioned that they did that earlier. THX.
You can only weld them in at the front rail.

You cannot weld them in at the door hinges, because the SFB (Stephens Fender Brace) goes over the hinges, not under them. If it went under the hinges the doors would not fit properly.

See these pictures from this thread:

I love how the strut itself, Stephens Fender Brace, and the top of that Cusco bar all line up. Notice the door hinges bolt under the SFB (Stephens Fender Brace) and you can remove the hinge for maintenence. On the other end, the body metal itself is threaded, two (2) bolts tightened down, and the brace is welded in place. (Thanks Hank and Sal).



Close up of SFB and hinges.



Close up of welds and bolts permanently fastening the SFB to the front rail.



Once again, I love the way everything lines up and you can clearly see how the front end is now boxed-in. Plus, we still have plans to foam in that front rail (side rails, and A-B-C pillars).



Another angle on the "boxed-in" front end.

Did you end up making these for a P10 by chance? If not I might have a go at it with my new welder (not new to welding though).

i havent had a chance to make these for a p10 yet, if i could get someone to let me use their car for an afternoon that i would be able to start making these for the p10. if anyone does end up letting me use there car i will make a set for them for just the price of materials.
