Strut tower install

Finally got this on after its been sitting in a corner for almost 9 months, I think it looks great and completes the engine bay area better. Also has a nice contrast with my paint job i recently did

That looks awesome! Have you considered putting a small matte black stripe in the middle of the strut brace to give it a bit of contrast?

I was actually thinking of adding some script text on the strut, either SSydney or something like supersport

It really does pop, and when you catch it at the right angle the purple is so crazy looking.

I cant say its a huge difference, but i will say when i turn corners its a little stiffer then before. However that could be my mind telling me it really is when its doing nothing lol. Id say i feel somewhat of a difference though.

GOOD JOB Chris!
Looks cool! I like it.

Is it harder to take off the engine cover now?

Very Nice Strut Brace. ! ! !

I just put one on my 1LT and
one question bout yours that
differs from mine is the shims or
spacers underneath at the mounting points.
Mine just came with the bolts guess thats the
difference in a V6 vs a V8 engine cover?

Looks great. I have been tossing back and forth the idea of getting one for mine. You're completely right, it finishes the engine bay.

I like the cut-out in the engine cover. Adds depth to a rather ordinary plastic shield...

I assume it took you 9 months because as a 2010, you needed to drill out the holes in the strut towers, yes?
