These pictures were sent to me by fellow Maxima owner Brian Vogelsinger.  While most Maxima owners out there are trying to decide between the Stillen or the Courtesy Nissan FSTB, Brian designed and fabricated his own Strut Tower Brace for his 1997 Maxima SE 5-Speed.  

In Brian's words: "My friend had already put one on his Taurus SHO, so we got some 3/4 inch aluminum pipe, flattened the ends in a vice, then bent it slightly in several places so that it fit snugly under the hood and over the engine block. Then it was just a matter of bolting it in place and going out and taking some really fast corners."
