Now I'm hoping this rates as an improvement for those who were critiquing the previous setup. Now both shock mounts are connected via a single piece of 1/2 inch steel and the mount will no longer act as a lever upon which the up travel of the shock will push. Integrated into the center tire mount and connected vertically, down to the cage this shock setup should be significantly stronger that it was previously.
Additionally the rear wheel wells are now complete with their rubber linings as well which should keep the interior of the fiberglass safe from rocks being spit up. Still have to worry about trees and other vehicles and such...but if the NISMO Stuff Retro-Runner is having fender to fender contact with other vehicles, saving my fiberglass fenders and bedsides will be the least of my worries.
