Well, I know that Jamex still produces the 4k/80/90/ur-q/C-GT brace,
and they used to produce a type 44 brace. Here is a recent post to
the 20valve list:

I and maybe a couple other people on the main q-list are Jamex dealers.
The brace on Blau's site is a Jamex unit. It is VERY nice. For
reference, it is the same unit 2B sells and was also sold on the main
list a year or more by some guy. It fits the 4000Q, 4000 CPE Q, 80/90 Q
and urq cars. I didn't think I would like it on our urq at first,
it has the battery offset, but the battery offset is also a brake master
cylinder reservoir offset, so it works great.
That said, you probably want to hear about the price. It can be ordered
from Jamex directly for $90 plus shipping!
If you want to buy it from me instead, I can sell them for $85 plus
shipping or if a whole bunch of people want them, $80 plus shipping.
Jamex recently raised the price on the strut braces from $80 to $90,
I don't take credit cards, so it may be faster and easier to pay a
little more and buy direct. In any case, I'm not making much money
on each brace. Jamex's direct number is 888-40-JAMEX.
If someone wants to organize a group purchase through me, let me know.
They have a $1000 minimum dealer order, so to purchase the racing seats
I want, I'll have to put another order together in the next couple of
P.S. For any type 44 people (5k/220): When Jamex sold the 5k/200 front
strut braces, the retail cost was about $100. TAP and 2Bennett charge
twice that. Since Jamex no longer sells them, $195 is what you have to
pay. Still it is a great value for any type 44 owner since it is
literally a bolt on, 5 minute job!
