Those fender braces look exactly like the ones garagestar just released, minus one bar. Hmm... did it really take someone 2 years to copy something, then add a bar and cut to lightening holes and powdercoat?

I don't think you realize the extensive work that went into these. There weer about 5 or 6 redesigns on these to make them as light and as strong as possible. Nothing was copied.

I own the garagestar braces, I do like them, I don't doubt they're quality after inspecting them.

Take a good look at the fender braces linked in this thread, and tell me there's no copying going on.

Considering I went through the entire design process with Ken, I can say with 100% certainty that these were not copied. There are only so many ways that you can design a fender brace on a miata...small car, small space, only so many holes.

Also, the high quality you mentioned is one of the reasons it took so long. Ken sent the braces back several times for redesign based on build quality. He's a perfectionist.

I'd love a set of SSR MkIIs, but they only seem to come staggered.

So you get two pairs then. I also quite like mismatched pairs of wheels when done right.
