    Default Strut Brace Fitting?

    Hi,
    Just wondering how the strut brace from regal fits. Does it use the standard strut tower holes and bolts or do you have to drill the tower?

    I've fitted both types to different cars before and I don't want to drill the strut tower again, if its a bolt on one I will fit one!

    Thanks

    Does it make any difference? I really can't see it making any noticable difference, as the turrets are very close to the bulk head anyway, and that will prevent any flexing of the upper suspension structures.

    Not sure that it does make any difference I bought it soon after I had the car. Moving from a 'B' to the 'C' I didn't like the handling so this was a try & see. I am now happy with the feel of the car so it could come off however I like the look of it sat there looking nice & shiny ......

    That's an impressively inspiring clean & sparkling engine bay Tadpole. (I'm lost for adjectives!)

    How do you do it?
