I got a clamp about 2 weeks ago and finally made the brace on Sunday. Painted it yesterday and put it on today. As you can see, nothing is straight on it...

This on was a lot easier to make then the one for my '71, and didnt take nearly as long. You can find the brace for my '71 here.

Thanks everybody!

Peter, the box is a weak point on these. I suggest that you should make one for yours if it doesn't already have one. That goes for everybody! If you brake the aluminum box its very, very expensive to get another!

Im looking forward to seeing what you come up with! This is one of those things that you can make as fancy or plane as you want.

I have to agree that is an extremely clever design you came up with Ryan. I think you may become an engineer soon!!
