I've wanted to do these for a really long time now, but they've proven a challenge. Very hard to cast to net shape, so I really didn't bother. Now that I've got the mill I can use it to my advantage :evil:
I had one of these strut bars back in the day. I was not really pleased with the design
I purchased one of Corksport's last strut bars for the 323 GTX when they discontinued their BF chassis stuff. Super stiff bar, with really rigid and well designed mounts. Visible in this pic:
However even this was not perfect... the GTX does not use a 4-bolt strut mount, so I had to drill it out to use it on the Capri. No room for the nut on the stud there. Plus, I wanted some of my own design!
So I made this pattern this morning, based off the CS style mounts, with some of my own twist in the design. Pattern is made from MDF, pine & bondo lol
