Larry do you just need to drill out the Hole? or do you need to get the old bolt out still? If you just need to Drill out the Hole, I would not pay for a Machine Shop to do that. Anyone with a DrillPress should be able to do that. I think.lol

Anyone with a drill press can probably do it. But most machine shops have more specialized equipment better suited for the job.

I forgot about this since it's been so many years, Tinmar off Shields road did some modifications to a strut tower brace for me. They cut and welded some parts at a very reasonable price.

Just need the mount hole on the bracket to be drilled to half a inch. I got the block fix just took a lot of time and money. Hopefully we should be running this weekend.

Yep, Mark was a joy to work with. Stillen never did any R&D on their 1st Gen Altima Front Strut tower brace on a car that had ABS. Of the thousands sold, I was the first one.

I had a choice--send it back or modify it. So Tinmar modified it, made it stronger with some welds that couldn't be done by Stillen's CNC machine. I then had the rings re-painted in the same color as the exterior using the same paint code by Regal Nissan (back when they were called that).

And the results are here:

I thank everyone for all help. I got the mount drilled out, and the block is fix. Dropping the motor back end along with a extra goodie or two.

My car club has a good raport with nopi maybe we can, but the only thing they are going to want a nice qtr mile track to hold the show at, so that will be a tough one.

That may not be as far fetched as it sounds. Here's some good reading:
