Are they as rigid as the stock pieces?

Best Regards,

These braces are much more rigid than the stock braces but do carry more weight than the stock extruded ones. I will get the weight differences and post them soon.

We are waiting to get the lower ones done later this week to see what kind of time it will take to machine everything and then we will pass on a group buy price. :thumbsup

Very impressive. If I had only known might not have rushed off to have my stock ones chromed. Like the Pantera, the Ford GT lends itself to modifications both in appearance and performance, and someday like the Pantera it may be difficult to find and absolutely stock example. Long live American ingenuity and the Hot Rod tradition!

The stock braces are 2lbs 11oz and the custom braces are 3lbs 12oz so if my math is correct approximately 1lbs 1oz heavier.:thumbsup
