I think a shock tower brace is *very* beneficial on the type 81/85
chassis (1980-87 4K/coupe series).

Aside from Jamex, another solution is the factory brace from a 90-91
Coupe Quattro.  See Huw Powell's site for info:

Yet another solution is to have one custom made.  A good welder should
be able to fab one of good quality.  I went this route on my 4000, and
had it power coated.
