>> Hi Gang
>> 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
>> installed.
>> 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:
>>> Chuck:
>>> 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.

>>> Got one of Chuck's strut bars and put it on the 200 Avant wagon. The bar

>>> the camber brought within factory specs. Should be no more problems with
>>> the front tires only lasting 10-15K before they have to be replaced.
>>> Handling really hasn't change though the car feels more planted on bumpy
>>> curves. And it looks good.
>>> If anyone has a type 44 sedan or wagon that has a problem at the stress
>>> point or just want to keep the front suspension where it belongs you
>>> have to get one of these cross braces from Chuck.
