A real quality piece! Really firmed up my Spyder. 

It looks like it could survive most anything. Way to go Phats!

I finally installed my Phat brace this morning.  I took some pictures of a factory brace, a Cusco brace and Phat's brace for comparison.    I thought of drilling some holes for the three plastic tube clamps, but realized they require square holes.   The Cusco brace has holes drilled but they're round, and too large to hold the plastic clips, so not very helpful.   I snugged up my three tubes with a piece of split rubber hose and a zip tie.

And if you see that Phat's brace is particularly shiny in my pictures, that's because I couldn't resist hitting it just once with a buffer wheel.  🙂

If you drill the biggest round hole then use a square file it really don't take that long  plus you can round off the plastic plug .  I like the shine !!

I'm hoping to install mine tomorrow... I'm dependent upon others for flat driveway space where I can do the work.

 

Stay tuned.

I want to buy one but I am holding onto hope that you make the full midship brace available at some point.

Finally got it installed a couple weeks ago, with the help of Eric (heeltoehero)... on jackstands in his driveway... in the rain.

Immediate impression of this brace is that it dramatically reduces the flexibility of the chassis, and also has reduced some of the rattling noises in the cabin.

After thoughts are, I'll never work under this car again unless it's up here:
