CNC machined from a solid chunk of 6061T6 aluminum, our billet hood braces add a stunning touch to your engine compartment. The braces fasten in the same position on the underside of your hood as the stock stamped steel brace. They do, however, require drilling out rivets to remove the stock parts. New stainless steel fasteners and mounting hardware is included. The braces will not clear the radiator hose on cars with the stock six cylinder radiator mounting position.
