Sure looks like a comprehensive brace, and man, it sure is red.
You can prescale the pics to about 75% of original size using the photo editor of your choice before attaching them.
I like GIMP, because its GNU, and you can't beat that price.

Thanks Yea they are kinda big and realllllllly RED so old people like me don't have to use their bifocals lol used red to get contrast against engine compartment and it really did the job Think we will tame the production colors down a little lol

I was in the cue to test fit when G' was working on it here in SoCal. I'm surprised there isn't someone near you in Illinois.

Spread the word guys...somebody knows somebody surely !!

I will look this up during the weekend and get back to you, but I believe that it should not be a problem.
