I am attempting to build an OMP style front upper strut bar for my Y2K Chevy Metro. Getting ready-made mounting plates would make my task much easier. Murr, Jardamuth up to the task ? how about just building bar ? I am not looking to do mass production because selling parts for 95-2001 cars is very difficult.

Plates are no problem, I have a 100lbs or soo of them.

The bar will need a car to trial fit one. All of my neighbors are driving SUV's now may try to find a shell some wheres.

what kind of time frame are you looking at?

Hmm.. Any idea how much that would cost to make? (or how much you'd charge for one at least).

I may be interested..

How thick did you need those mounts need to be? Do you need them to be just like the ones in the picture? I can make some for you.

All I would need are 4 plates, same thickness as pictures, minus the top pieces. How much would it cost me ?

If I make them how do you plan on connecting the crossbar? With just the rings cut it will be hard to attach the bar to the rings.

That's where the person with the welding skills and mandrel bender comes in.

Give me a number you would think is fair. How clean do you need these parts to be made?

I can do designs, I am unable determined what the mounting plates are worth. The person who puts their time into building these plates is the only one who can name a price. I only want plates to build 1 bar and request 4 just in case something goes wrong. My original request was to someone who has many of these plates sitting somewhere.

I would like to thank all who replied to my request for plates or to build a bar. I am awaiting plates to arrive so I can start my project.
