    Hardest bit is treading the brace bar around all the junk under the bonnet..

    other than that, very straightforward.. I had my bar CNC bent but i don't know if the profile will fit other cars.. Hopefully get me ar#e in gear to finish it for santa pod..

    im gonna design mine on CAD and then get one of our friends to get her pipe company to make me one. She had all our solid brass stair rods made for us for pennies so im sure they could knock up a simple polishedalloy bar with a threaded nut in the middle to make it adjustable
