Here’s one of the shots from the printer. It should have it by next week for a fitment check. I did it in red this time for more horsepower gains.

They arrived today!

New issue though. While it is much more sturdy, there is now less room to mount it via the J hooks. I have aftermarket J hooks. Can you please measure your J hooks from the top to where the bend at the J is? Reply to this thread.
This may also make a difference to those who have the stock battery size.

I’ll choose a dimension that works for everyone and then reduce the boss size. I don’t think I’ll have to prototype it again; it’ll be ready for production. Thanks!

I’m pretty sure this is the OEM J hook. 8in / 200mm. Seems like an 8.5 or 9 -inch would be better, or I’d have to reduce the reinforcement. I’ll look up options for J hook replacement.

I found a set that is 8.875in that arrives on Wed. I’ll report results.

Received the J hooks today. Looks like these would work. I was not able to install on car. Will post pix when I do.


New hardware makes a difference and it doesn’t hit the hood. I will give the option to include these with the price of the brace. I adjusted the angle of the boss so it matches the angle of the J hook. I think we’re good to go!

I will talk with the printer and preorder 10. I’ll figure out pricing and post them on the G2IC store page. Remember that all funds go to keep the site going – I don’t make any profit on this personally. Thanks for your support and patience!

(I’ll probably just order all black unless someone asks for a different color)

Just a small update.

I ordered some clear caps for the top of the J hooks. I’m also looking into flanged nuts instead of these regular ones to complete the OEM look.

Submitted to printer. Ordered flange nuts.
