define worth?

the RRP is about £55-75.

the benefit is almost nothing.

the value is whatever you are willing to pay.

used strut braces often go for £10-20 on ebay.

its only a metal bar at the end of the day. boyracer bits cost a fortune because people are willing to pay it, that doesnt mean its worth it.

Ive heard it might help my coilovers though, and my soft top has a lot of body roll.

Probably need a good amount of prepping especially as it will be in the engine bay where it could get a bit warm :)

Yellow spray paint would be ok following the prepping i wouldve thought :confused: better asking that Q in the bodyshop section

you dont use ebay much do you?
the idea is to keep quiet about items you want and how much you are going to bid.
