I have a couple of requests to build some more of the strut tower bar
we built last spring.
So if a person is interested let me know and I will forward some pictures.
I have had pretty good response from the folks that have gotten theirs
This bar is specific to only the 91 200 20v sedans and avants.
I need 4 or more to make it worth the effort to get all the materials.
Here is a couple of responses:
> Sorry for tardiness on reply.
> Yes, have done two track events (Gingerman and Putnam Park).
> The car is much more stable in turns, and much flatter.
> Suggest you contact aftermarket suppliers and offer it to them.
