    Description

    Must have for 69-70 convertible owners or anyone else who wishes to tighten up the notoriously weak front inner structure of the 67-70 Cougar / Mustang. All three of these easy to install upgrades are outlined in the BOSS 302 Chassis Modification book that is NOT included in this package. After you install this kit you will wonder how you could have possibly lived this long without it. Even if you already have the one piece export brace, the chances are it is the old ill fitting off-shore reproduction we see so many of. Look close at the pictures below, this unit closely resembles a NOS original brace in every way. This is a good gift idea as it is easy to install and will fit on any 67-70 Mustang or Cougar no matter what model or engine.

    Look closely at how deep the ridges are on this new high quality brace. 90% of all export braces you see are junk as they do not fit right, look right or provide the rigidity of the originals. This is a very good quality part. The BOSS Chassis manual refers to the export brace as the Export-Type Spring Tower to Dash Brace on page 7.

    You can keep your original unmodifed cross member or return it to us for a core refund. No rusted, dented cores will be excepted for credit. If you need original mounting bolts we have good used ones available.

    The shock tower reinforcement plates require welding but are not hard to install and are not easily seen once they have been installed and painted black. Very important upgrade for those that do not have the reinforcement plates on the engine side of the shock towers.

    Export brace for perfect instant change to the engine bay looks and strength. I do recommend installing the brace followed by the engine cross member parts fully welded and ready to bolt in. Last the shock towers brace it should stay nice and squared ready for the reinstall of the remaining components.

    I ordered this kit to installed along with repairing significant rust damage to the front frame along the shock towers. The export brace needed the car to be fit to it (great advice Don), used a porta power to get the job done.

    The shock tower supports were solid and fit in perfectly atop the frame repair- they do not lay flat. The change to the handling in the car is not only noticinle, but a major improvement. Well worth the price.

    The export brace has a hefty construction a must if you are putting a modern engine in your cougar or mustang. I was very surprised how thick and there was no sharp edges on the weld ins. Very pleased

    Thanks Mike
