DIY custom trunk strut bar....

so i pealed back the carpet stuff thats in our trunks the other day to replace a tailight that went out and it doned on me to look for a trunk strut bar to connect from side to side inside the trunk, and unless im blind i couldent find one at all so i decided to make my own. basicly i went to my local hardware store and bought a solid 3/4 inch (19.5mm) iron bar and using a bench press drill and 3 drill bits (first 2 broke) i made my own!, and idk you can call me crazy if you want, but it made a hella diffrence is the a$$ end bodyroll of the car and feals alot stiffer. im composing a DIY thread with pics for those of you who are intrested

this is what i mean if some of you are puzzled, this is from a rx8's trunk
