Simple Steering Box Braces

You can find photos of the steering braces that I built for my two
cars at:

These braces are made of 1/4" steel that can be purchased almost
anywhere. It was simply a matter of carefully measuring the distances
required between the existing mount and the steering box bolt hole,
since the distances are not really standardized in the Amphicars.
They are a very cheap yet effective way to eliminate steering box
movement. If your car doesn't have such mounting points, obviously
you'll have to use another system.

I am right with you on this one John. My homemade brace is the same
except wider steel stock and maybe not as thick. I would be amazed
if it took a full hour to complete and cost less than $10.00. I
initially thought the style from Renee Pohl from Germany was the way
to go, but no welding won the day and it is removable.
