    It's been years since I have been really active in car audio forums. I posted a ton about 10 years ago here on caraudio.com, termpro.com, sounddomain.com, caraudioforum.com, and a whole bunch more that I no longer remember. You may remember me. If not, you're probably just young haha. Because of the many years since I've done any selling / buying, the only person I can remember for my references is Team PSI (David Moore).

    the fist statement without the second one is what had me (and probably others) thinking you misread.

    i was not familiar with his previous situation.

    i totally agree with a magnet brace, or go the easy way and up-fire it

    I don't think it would be too hard to implement a simple magnet brace...
