Brace Bars SPECIAL TYPE (For up and over hinge conversions)

Brace bars are required by law in the UK when fitting a composite front end to your mini. They triangulate the front subframe and significantly stiffen the front of the car, helping with handling and safety in the event of a collision.

These special type brace bars are a nice alternative to the standard steel box section brace bars that we also sell. They are manufactured using round tube, providing a cleaner look, and the design incorporates length adjustment to ensure a perfect fit.

They can be used on any shape of classic mini, including clubman type minis.

A frequently talked about issue regarding the 'up and over' front end hinges is that of brace bar location. The hinge kits use the mounting points of the front shock absorbers and subsequently would foul standard square brace bars. These are the solution, special type brace bars have been designed in such a way that the hinges will work without interfering with the brace bars. The Brace Bars come complete with new nuts and bolts for mounting.

The brace bars are finished in two pack gloss black paint, meaning no extra finishing is required, just unbolt your original shock brackets, and bolt these on. You just need to drill one 10mm hole in your subframe for the front mountings. They can be fitted in a matter of minutes.
