    It's not a fender brace that was or is used, they reproduce the brace , it goes from the center of the spoiler to the radiator support

    I never used the brace. Many guys don't. If you hit the spoiler it can break. The brace causes to much stress in the center. It is not needed.

    I figure the spoiler might deflect at 120 MPH and more. So I braced mine. I rather not have drag ruin it.
