    Mine was pretty butchered, DOC suggested making a removable one.
    Sure makes it alot easier :p
    Not the best welds in the world, but I grinded them pretty good :D

    That looks like a super cool idea. What'd you use to attach it at the ends?

    You can see the holes in the above picture's of the support. Then drill aligning holes on the car and run nut/bolt through it. The lower support also has fabbed mounts on the car.
    Remembering that my car is really butchered, but for those that just have a bent upper support, it might make for an easy/cheap way to clean it up.
