i'm debating doing this on my truck, but i'll be using a 2.5 lbs baja designs fuegos. has anyone made a bracket that goes from the fiberglass header panel to the metal radiator support? just trying to get some ideas or tips. I can get creative with sime steel scraps if need be.

For the 01 model do you still do the same set up with the L brackets?
