Hey all,

Putting up Ultra Racing Fender Braces. I had planned to install them, but was too lazy and now the car has a lot of mileage and rust and I'm quite certain I will now never get around to it.

Ultra Racing Front Fender Braces
Part # URKR-FD3-2736
Fits 2010-2013 Forte Koup
Condition: I bought them used from a guy locally about 3 years ago, but he told me he never got the chance to install them (wrecked car) and looking at them, I'm quite certain they've never been installed. They have little spots of surface rust here and there, but that's due to moving them around a few times and being stored outside (in a shed).
Asking $100 USD + shipping.

Do you know how much of a difference the shifter would make on my 2010 SX koup? Like how much is the travel reduced over stock?
I really don't know. I went with that one cuz a) it's an OEM part, and b) it's near impossible to find other ones anymore. The few reviews of it I had found were all positive. I'm guessing it will reduce the throw as much as any other short shifter.

I believe that stock one was made by Boomba Racing.
Ah man, it's been so long I forgot that I read who actually manufactured it. If I'm not mistaken, it's actually B&M Racing, which is a quality manufacturer and another reason I went with OEM.

Ah yes, found it:

You're right, rare rare to find. I'd buy it if the shipping isn't way up there.

Also, someone closer to you would be better cause it's the right there/can see in person.
Yeah shipping prices are ridiculous. So often I find good deals and am ready to order until I see the shipping cost. :cry:
