G'day everyone,
Just wondering if somebody could give me the length of the two pieces that make up the Ford Tailgate Hinges they used for their MM2 leg brace. I'm looking to make a new leg brace and am making all the different pieces myself.
Thanks a lot guys!

Not to sure why would would make it when you could buy it on ebay for about $20, any way the pieces are approx. 12 in. The attachment point to the AFO in roughly based on how tall you are. The brace itself when finished is pretty high up your leg but you don't want it to smash your junk when you walk either. :lol:

I wish I could buy it for $20! Shipping on the tailgates always make the price $60 +. Besides, I always enjoy making things. So, approx. 12". It always looked to me as if the lower piece was shorter than the top piece. But still, thanks! :)
