We have test fitted the bar on both the sedan and coupe, and because of the way the MLS ones are set to barely clear under the hood, any slight variance either in the bar or the car may cause a misfit.

What we have concluded is that the bars would have to be cut an additional 1/4". This will still allow room between the bar and the engine, while ensuring that it also clears the hood, and IMO, would be a much better fit than the actual MLS bars.

So, at this point, the bars will be cut and re-powder-coated. As ChrisK has said that he does not need it powder-coated being that he plans to paint it anyway, we'd like to know if anyone else would like to not have it powder-coated.

Please let us know.

As far as time is concerned, it looks like it would take about 3 more weeks as the fabricator has since been bogged with more work.

Sorry about the delay, and any inconvenience. We'll try to get this done and out to those of you who ordered ASAP.

Thanks for understanding.

Sounds good to me. :) I feel the lowering of the total bar height would definetely make for an imrpovement, not only in fit but performance as well. It should make the the bar stiffer I believe.

Well, we had a group buy a while back for these. The price was $245 shipped.

Right now, we're trying to work out the kinks of this first run, and have no immediate plans to start a second group buy just yet.

Am I being stupid here?

Just wondering... I had thought that 9x-9x Prelude Strut bars would fit a Legend with very little modification. Was I wrong about this? I can pick up a polished Prelude (any year) strut tower bar for like $90. Can I make this fit my sedan?

True'dat but I hear the bar must be slightly bent to fit. Sort of defeats the design IMO. Hence the dub of the MLS Strut Tower Bar, it's "Legend" specific. Some have the Prelude bar and that's cool, some would rather hav'tha real (or a dub of tha real). To each his own, it'z all gud!!!

Just wanted to update you guys on what's happening.

We are expecting the corrections to the bars to be completed by the end of the second week of June.

Sorry for the delay. We will ship them out to you as soon as they're done.

Thanks for being patient.

I'm interested in finding out what they can and will do, as well as the quality of their work for possible future projects.
