Good find.
That's a great price for anyone looking to make an authentic MM2 legbrace (though these tailgate hinges are more roughed up than Max's, so you might actually want to clean them up a bit for accuracy. Rare that I would say that with an MM2 item).

These, plus a vintage AFO brace, some leather belts and some hardware bits and you're good to go.
I'll be posting pics and a tutorial on how to make a screen accurate leg brace one of these days. I think there are pics of me wearing my leg brace in the Road Warrior Weekend photo threads in the Roadwar section. It was 90% finished at the time. Now it's done.
So many pics and tutorials I need to post, but I need to completely finish my costume first.
In the meantime, any of you at the point where you're ready to make your leg brace, feel free to get in touch with me and I'll try to help you out.

Yeah, nothing that alittle silver enamel spray paint can't fix. Beats $66 plus shipping. If you get around to it I'd love to see a couple pictures posted of your leg brace.
