Some time last year after I completed my build-up I purchased the correct strut tower brace from a good friend at a great price. My stock brace no longer worked due to the Intake change. Well I finally dropped it off last week to have powder coated as I wasn't crazy about the flat black. Alas! I picked it up the other night and placed it on the car yesterday O0: Hoping to get some stainless steel allen head fasteners today for it so it's actually connected . I am so pleased with the way it turned out! This guy does some incredible work!
