I picked up this fellows flier at a car show in the 80s. At least back then, he'd custom make whatever length you'd want.

If there the finned aluminum thrush those clamps are called guillotine clamps and they're used as the mounts also. They're kinda hard to find at auto parts stores ..... I tried, I wound up ordering them from summit. I just picked up a set myself and it looks like a flat piece of steel on those clamps and up to the inner rocker panels would be the best way to mount those babys. Good luck and keep us posted on that setup cause I'll be headed there soon.

I'm very interested in seeing who buys it and what it sells for.
