Very Impressive! Is the plate sturdy? Or somewhat flexes?

It's sturdy. Doesn't rattle. I used silicone between it and the remaining GM bracing. The rivets hold it tight. Plus it's bolted onto the heat deflector, so it's not going anywhere.

Does anyone sell a brace to use to bolt the extractor too. I want to do this for my wife's Camaro but I don't wanna deal making a brace to bolt it up to.

Looks great. I doubt it flexes much, if it's riveted that much. I think I'd do a variation of this when we actually get to this mod.
