Count me in for the initial run g-townmach.

I've experienced the same rattle with my Solo XLT cat-back - I had a shop try to adjust the pipes / stock plate but they said if it continues to rattle I'd either need to try some welding (which I don't want to do) or another plate so your solution looks like the answer.

I WOULD PURCHASE ONE OF THESE. I HAVE A 2SS WITH FLOWMASTER AMERICAN THUNDER 3" KIT ON IT AND IT HIT THE FACTORY BRACE SO BAD I HAD TO TAKE IT OFF. IT LOOKS LIKE ONE OF THESE WOULD CLEAR THE EXHAUST. E-MAIL ME AT FASTBAJA98@YAHOO.COM IF YOU START SELLING THESE.

The ragtop has a two members that form an x across the center for almost the whole width of the vehicle and two additional members that form a v at the back.

Very nice work... It looks much better than the stock unit and I'm sure you could sell a bunch of these too...

Very nice work. I'd buy one too. Now powder coated body color would really be a nice touch

I don't necessarily think stronger was what he was originally going for. It's made to add a extra bit of room so his exhaust doesn't hit the bar. He was creative and made something that's esthetically more appealing while adding a bit more rigidity to the design. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that it's stronger than the OEM sheet. The question will be, how it will hold up to the constant flexing over time.

IMO, $195 is quite expensive for this part. Don't get me wrong, I think you probably have that much in time and material invested. It's just that sometimes making your own parts isn't always cheaper, especially when you're milling them out of a solid piece of aluminum. That being said, there's always a portion of the community that will buy them no matter what.
