Hi all I'm struggling to find how to do this, does anyone know how you can (or if you can) fit a mugen rear strut brace to the DC5 with all interior in still and if so tell me how?

Thanks

Something like this..

Thanks for the image mate, may do it when swapping the rear speakers, if I do are you aware of whether I could just cut the sides a bit (not the whole part), reason I ask is so I can fit it then re fit the panels with less cutting so it covers the fitment bolts.

Do the cutouts show with the seats up etc? From inside and are their any benefits found from this bar ?

Thanks mate, where did you source templates for cutting?

I've also just seen I need the Small black rubber car edge trim caravan trailer motorbike 9.5mm x 6mm you brought so sourced via eBay cheers :)

I used to have one of these. From what I could see, if you took the two bits of trim out then you could fit the brace without cutting the trim. Once you have put the seats back you can't see the cuts anyway. Never bothered me.

Thanks for confirming mate,

Are they wary to remover does anyone know? Rather not cut but if I get the templates then I will
