Any ideas? I'll buy one immediately if we can sort out a quick release solution.

Any idea if Whiteline bolts fit? What size bolts are usually supplied with the brace?

Here is some measurements for the Whiteline quick release. Although its a great idea, I think Whiteline have implemented it as cheaply and nastily as possible, then stuck an insane markup on it (standard Whiteline operating procedure). The quality of the quick release is pretty dismal. I had to chase the threads after installing it just once, as the poxy metal used for the bolt is weak and crap, and probably made from recycled baked bean cans. Youd honestly be better off just getting a regular grade 8 or better bolt and keeping a couple of spanners in your boot. You could probably buy a decent brand ratcheting ring spanner cheaper than a Whiteline quick release kit anyways.

Quick release bolt is M10x1.5
Threaded bar ends are M14x1.5

Got some Ultrex S13 rear strut bars today for a little custom X brace project Im working on. Interesting to see left hand thread on one side of each bar. It means you can pre-tension the brace turn-buckle style. Very good idea, something the Whiteline bars are missing. They look a perfect fit for what I intend aswell.

Hehe. Yeah its gonna be a X brace diagonally between the towers. A whiteline struttop bar on the top and a laile beatrush floor bar on the bottom. Im gonna fabricate some staunch lower mounts and tie it into the whiteline strut top mounts.
