Why not?
 
everything else on my car has gone modern, why not these


Why not drive a modern car? I just don’t get why people buy a classic and turn it into a modern car. I understand if a certain part is not available or it’s safer to upgrade things like brakes or seatbelt though.

Reminds me of my late grandpa. He used to add a lot of chilli to his food then complain and curse for it being too hot.

Maybe 2002 is not modern enough for some.

In my case, deleting the bar opens up a little more space.  Clearance may get a little tight there.  Although, I do prefer Doug R's method of using the hot-rod swing arms instead of the gas struts.

Hope the Pepboys struts are better than the BMW ones for my Touring hatch door. First pair lasted 30 years; I'm now on the 3rd set since 2006.

 

No problem for Da Beater.
