    confused strut brace question again

    hi i want a strut brace, yes i no regal do one but im trying to get one cheaper. i was looking at the old veccy b strut braces on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-VECTR...QQcmdZViewItem

    will this fit the veccy c? if you look at the centre looks like it can be extended? what you think?

    The problem may be it's height. Mine sits very, very close to the bonnet when it is shut. (I have a Regal one)

    Also looking at each end (hard to with those pictures) it doesn't look like any of the fixing holes are in the right place, nor do the end bits look big enough.

    I would have thought that because Vec C strut braces are sooo rare, that someone must have tried this solution before now, and I don't know of anyone that has and succeeded

    Cheers

    Where mine bolts onto the struts its a semi circle and surely if you start cutting or stretching anything you'll lose all strength that's needed. Mine is also practically touching the brake filler and expansion tank and according to GSI 3.2 if they're any higher you;ll bend your bonnet!!

    I looked everywhere and had to go to Regal. Save that bit extra and you'll notice the difference!

    Yep,sounds daft but the car feels more 'solid' even the other half reckons she can notice a difference especially in the lack of squeaks.I was giving up ever seeing it, then an email saying it had been dispatched then 2 days later it turns up!
