Okay John, I don't know if people are just trying to be kind and don't want to offend or maybe they just hadn't noticed but I feel it my responsibility to honestly critique the brace you built. I hope your not offended and I'm only pointing out to you what to me is the obvious...Your knew brace doesn't look anything like the original...it's not even the same color...LOLHere is the basically finished floor brace. The origional purpose of this thread was to show that a car could be built on a budget. There is 3 dollars worth of metal in this brace. It is built out of 5 small pieces of metal and the only tools used were shrinker/stretcher jaws and a mig welder. Of course I also used a 9 dollar die grinder and and my compressor.
The thing you must remember is I enjoy this. The fact that I have a ridiculous amount of time in it is irrelevant to me. I had fun
Beside the original one.
Great job John, it is truly a labor of love.
