Ok guys 1 left in weld in guise , no more bolt ons left for the time being. Can arrange another batch if a couple of people want bolt ins though.

Also if your localish pop round and we can weld the last one in for £50 all in.

Are you 100% certain you could use these on the ZS? as where you weld/bolt it there are fixed metal brake lines etc.

£15 to weld it in , and theres no brake lines in the way, infact theres no brake lines anwyhere near your talking about ABS cables which are on the rear.

Next batch i will start up when i get some interest , so far only one person needs one , need a minimum of 5 really, if people wanna start putting names down again i wil happily get it sorted.

That's understandable, cableguy have you ever ventured on to themgzs.co.uk you may be able to add some names to the list. I know of a few who have mentioned wanting some over there.

(mods please feel free to delete if you feel inapproprite)

Dan do you think it would be possible to triangulate this lower brace in the vertical axis, so that it can bolt to the underside of the boot floor of an R8 coupe just infront of the spare wheel location. Then i'm thinking of getting a 3point rear upper brace made up, so that the mounts for this would also pick up in the same place but inside the boot floor, and the idea would be to bolt the braces together in a sandwich through the floor?

I don't know for certain if this would all work out and fit where im thinking it might go, but if you have facilities to make a custom 3point lower brace that could be suitable for this job then id be very interested to have one made up.

I can make whatever you want, but the whole point of the lower brace is to hold the lower arms in place, moving its location will allow these to flex mate :)

I know this thread is a bit old now but if enough interest could you do another batch of these?

Very interested if you can.

Cheers
Hayley

I'd be up for a bolt on one, assuming they are the same for R8 and ZS as they both share the same rear suspension.
