Been a busy spring for me so I haven't been spending much time on here the last few months. Things have slowed down a bit and I made some time to build my strutt bar. Here are a few pics

The diamond plate in black looks good. It is for sure not a "pretty" but it looks like it would work well.

Hmm from an engineering perspective it should work ok but not optimal. As it is behind/in front of the towers. Optimal stress prevention would be across the top of the towers. Having said that the tower movement is minimal anyway, so that any rigid support will make a noticeable improvement.

wouldn't that diamond plate just flex since it was bent which reduced it's strength??

All the same, great work for doing it by yourself, and being unique. One of a kind and something to be proud of, I would though change the color to something more noticable to show off what you did!
