Strut Brace

Have been thinking about a Strut brace on the DHC for a while, I tried a strut brace a friend in Bury St Edmunds has developed for a V8 but this will not fit, it fouls on SU carbs, so today I experimented with a couple of bits of wood, some 2d patterns of the strut top mount and have come up with a concept.

Paper templates and wood to obtain measurements.

3d drawing of complete brace, have made this adjustable.

Close up rendering of mounting plate and tube end.

Now have to generate the 2d drawings for manufacture and get a sample made up to try it on the car before plating.
Pretty sure it will clear a standard air filter, but not sure if it will clear Sprint engined cars.
