    Default Is this a custom brace or store bought ?

    The aluminum brace under the dash to the stringer, can this part be ordered or is it a custom made part ?

    Hey Steve , I got her back to center steer . Also got the new plate system installed . Everything is mounted & plumbeb up . All I lack is wiring up the msd timing retard box & xtra fuel pump. Gonna try a 225 shot for starters , I figure that's gonna be plenty......I was kicking around the idea of making one of those braces to go from the middle of the bar the pedals are on to center of the dash directly under the steering wheel . Just a thought ?
    Here's a pic of what it looked like with the pod's.....& an xtra seat

    for those that cannot fabricate to that level, jan at lightning headers makes an assembly to order for that type of setup. i also believe that rex and eddie have the pedal blanks to help you fab your own. rexone may see this and clarify, they may offer the complete set up also.

    One thing to think about when designing that support is if you get tossed under the dash you could really injur your self on it... especially if it were in center steer and between your legs. . If you did miss the bar it make your escape out of a sinking boat more dificult aswell. If you feel you need the aditonal support I've been told running it from the deck (specifically steering post) to the bottom of front bulk head is the way to go. Congrats on a greaet buy Tunnel Vision is definetly a nice CP tunnel. If you ever get rid of it please let us know.

    Thanks for the advice , one of my buddies had the same oppinion about it getting in the way. I'll rethink it & look at the front bulkhead idea. I've towed it uncovered for a short distance a couple times & just didnt like seeing the deck/steering wheel shake whenever the road wasnt smooth. Not bad , just enuff to make me feel uncomfortable.

    If your just concerned about it while towing you could make a removablebrace brace that supports the steering column while in tow.

    Steve your rite , hell I towed it 20hours straight back to TEXAS & aint had an issue yet . We checked the springs the day I called you & got exactly 270lbs seat pressure all the way around. My bud said that was excellent & we'd check them again after at the end of the season. Valves were fine too.
