Default Front wing stays

Hi, just a quick question, has anyone used the front wing stays that rally design sell. I have just been having a quick look and they don't look to shoddy, and if anyone has used them and they are ok, I might be tempted

They are ok, but need strengthening between the round tube and flat bar connection as they'll crack like all the others.

Ah right, thanks for that Ben, usually I'm looking to make most items but now I'm thinking how I can save time and get finished, and by-passing making things like these are just one of the small items I can dodge.

It's not really worth making them. Much quicker to just buy and fit, still got to bend them tho !

I agree, it's getting someones input that has actually bought them, and it will save me a lot of time

Think I will splash some cash as I have tried Fabbing a couple of times from a kit and it all just falls to bits...
