    what's this part? It looks different in most everyone's pictures, some shiny, some black. What's it's function with those 2 semicircle shapes?

    Fuzzy cloth tape? Get outta here, abrasion & heat resistance cloth tape is where it's at

    but seriously thanks for all the detail, will come really useful next spring. Btw what strut bar do you have? I don't think I've seen one like that before

    My best guess, probably a blanking plate to fill the holes where the RHD models have their master cylinder and associated parts routed

    Yep definitely a blanking plate

    I have a cheap Ultra Racing strut bar that I cut ~0.75in out of the center and rewelded so it would work with my extended slot strut towers. Shortening it also lowered it down on in the engine bay making for a tight fit with the M56 valve cover. We good tho.
