    Good Day,

    I've emailed Global West eariler this week and asked them if there was any chance for a limited run of export braces for our cars, similar to this:

    https://www.globalwest.net/mustang-...67-1968-1969-1970-global-west-suspension.html

    I was told that they would need a car to measure to determine costs and secondly a minimum number of orders (50+).

    So is there any interest in this? Does anyone live near them in California with a V8? It seems a bit costly but I am not aware of any other options at this price point.

    I found a Mustang brace in the scratch and dent section for $35 and cut it down to fit a Maverick.

    I contacted Delta Bay this afternoon about an export brace. They are currently out of stock. I feel they would get more in if there was more interest. So, if you are in the market for an export brace, I suggest you give them a call.

    This kind of went off the rails, he's seeing if there's any interest in a Global West, tubular brace, not a Mustang style stamped steel part. I wouldn't mind it but I doubt that would clear the intake I'll be running.

    Thank you, that was my intention from the start. I think the Global West design looks sharp and can only be better than the stock brace we have.

    I will add that the delta bay website indicates USA orders only, so that does not help.
