Boss 302 shock tower reinforcements

Recommended Posts

I’ve bought the open tracker Boss 302 reinforcement plates and I’m after some advice please,

They aren’t a fantastic fit and not sure by looking at attached photo, if they’re in correct position ? 

thoughts and advice are welcome

thanks

Chris

I have some pictures when I did mine. I have Dynacorn shocktowers, so they came with the Big Block braces installed.

There's a plate on the inside of the tower also.

 

The Boss 429 type braces I made out of cardboard first, then steel.

Not much info, but I hope the pictures will help.

I did templates of the areas to fill in and cut them out of some leftover 11ga. I also fully welded all the seams on the shock towers before installing the plates, then fully welded them in place. The big block reinforcements were also fabricated (these are out of 7ga) and fully welded and blended. The inner brace was more 7ga, fully welded.
