**interest check** Strut tower caps
#1238889 - 05/15/06 03:53 AM

This is strictly an interest check for now for strut tower caps.

What: Strut tower caps for 95-00 Contours and Mystiques.
These will be made from CNC or forged/pressed aluminum or stainless steel depending upon which product works best. Accomodations for those among us that have camber kits will be looked into.

Why: To cover the top of the strut in the engine in an effort to make it look nice.

When: Anticipating production start in 4 - 6 weeks depending upon interest.

Other: I will also consider anodizing or powdercoating. A portion of the proceeds will go to a charity. No, it's not my ramen noodle fund either. I do not know the price range yet so don't ask. Well, you can ask but I won't know.

It will be something like this that I have.


Yes, I am at least interested in it.

Will these allow the use of most strut tower bars?

I don't see why not. The strut tower bars that I have seen leave enough room for this to still fit and stay on.
I will, of course, make sure it works before delivery.

This piece sits on top of the strut and is held in place by the rubber bushings. It's a snug enough fit that it won't rattle off and does not move.

I've seen it in person and it's a quality piece and a very nice aesthetic upgrade to cover up that ugliness.
