I was wondering why the darn strut braces made by so many companies cost so much.

If you are interested in titanium strut braces for your e30, and other models to come, pm me or leavea post.

I will offer in bare titanium, chrome, or any powder coat.

They are custom made so I can get them for any model, but I was only gonna offer e30s for the time being.

I have a skilled welder and Aluminum or titanium, which ever you chose, and am producing them on my own. I can gaurantee that they will be strong. I am going of existing designs.
Please tell me if this would hinder you going through with this. I put this thread here to se if people would buy from private company.

Also I am going to make the first one for myself to test it in Aluminum and then titanium. I will also develop a rear brace, and eventually a varient of the "x-brace".

I have yet to even biuld one yet, though I am not gonna send them out untill I and this friend of mine have romped on them for about a month, so it may be August before you could take delivery.
I will post a simple CAD before Friday ok.

I will be doing a test fit on my e30 tonight and I will get with my friend for the e36, also does the z3 have the same strut width and bolt spacing as an e36? I have a friend with one of those too so I may be able to test one on that. Umm my ex gf has an e46 so that takes care of all the models, I will be getting down and dirty on it tonight

I will consider lowering the price to below that of the competition, i will have to look around and see what others go for. Also when I get the e30's front, rear, and underbody braces designed I will offer a package deal.

kylebes1 hey that price its a bit steep wat dont u make it $70CND and then we can get a group buy going. I think for 70$ every one with an e30 would jump on it..

kylebes1
05-26-2004, 09:23 PM
I will have to see how much the material are gonna cost me. I guess low profit high turnover would work for me.

Remember there are 4 different braces needed for the E30 range.

1 - M3
2 - M20
3 - 'ix
4 - 4-cylinders (not sure, M10 and M42 may be different...so maybe 5)

Would anyone object to a straight over type? I may have to cuvre to get closer to hood, but the upward arch will make it stronger.
I am going to a friend's salvage yard tomorrow to do more messuring sorry about the promised CAD I had major brake trouble and had to replace rear cylinders, drums and shoes, which suck because I wanted to wait and do the five lug, not I will have brand new shiney drums to make a stool out of!!!

I knew about the ix difference but I may not be able to find an m3 to make a template for so does any one know exactly what the difference is?
For all the cars except the "ix" are the strut towers exactly the same, because if they are I will just design them to fit closly to the hood.

One last thing, how can I keep this thread on the first page of the for sale site?
