    GT spec chassis brace supplier found

    I found a site( importparts.co.za) that lists many of the chassis braces for mp5s. Has anybody else heard of, used, or had dealings with this comoany? I was pkanning on calling them this week and asking about inventory.

    This site shows they can obtain GTSPEC parts for Mazda. Not sure if you've seen this.
    https://store.outperformance.com/Outperformance-Shop-GTSPEC-s/2928.htm


    I've seen this shop before but I dont know much about them. However, I think I'd be more incline to do business with Outperformance thats located here in Texas, rather than dealing with a shop located in South Africa. Just sayin lol.

    Heres a list of Protege stuff they have listed:

    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1050 Front Lower Tie Brace MAZDA Protégé (4 & 5 Door) $ 98.00 $ 88.69
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1076 Trunk Reinforcement Brace MAZDA Protégé (5 Door) $ 99.00 $ 89.60
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1077 Rear 4 Points Cross Linkage Brace MAZDA Protégé (4 Door) $ 130.00 $ 117.65
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1078 Rear 4 Points Cross Linkage Brace MAZDA Protégé (5 Door) $ 160.00 $ 144.80
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1051 Rear Link Reinforcement Panel MAZDA Protégé (4 & 5 Door) $ 139.00 $ 125.80
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1081 Rear V Brace MAZDA Protégé (4 & 5 Door) $ 179.00 $ 162.0
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1070 Front Strut Brace MAZDA Protégé (4 Door) Type-F - Aluminum $ 161.00 $ 145.71
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1071 Rear Strut Brace MAZDA Protégé (4 Door) Type-F - Aluminum $ 161.00 $ 145.71
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1072 Rear Strut Brace MAZDA Protégé (5 Door) Type-F - Aluminum $ 161.00 $ 145.71

    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1075 Trunk Reinforcement Brace MAZDA Protégé (4 Door) $ 161.00 $ 145.71
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1049 4 Points Ladder Brace MAZDA Protégé (4 & 5 Door) (2001-2003) $ 185.00 $ 167.43
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1052 Trailing Link Set MAZDA Protégé (4 & 5 Door) $ 199.00 $ 180.10
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1143 Complete Trunk Cage MAZDA Protégé (4 Door) $ 420.00 $ 380.10
    GTSPEC GTS-SUS-1144 Complete Trunk Cage MAZDA Protégé (5 Door) $ 399.00 $ 361.10

    If you Google the GTS-SUS complete number, you should be able to see what part it is.
    Im looking at the front lower tie bar.
    Hopefully they really can actually get these parts.

    I was under the impression that GTSpec went out of business... I would tread lightly with any company that claims they can source parts from them.

    So I tried contacting Out Performance via email and by phone several times. No response. Sucks because I was hoping some company might have an overstock of Mazda GT Spec parts looking to unload. No such luck so far.

    I followed up, and was told they don’t carry the Protege5 line, because the car wasn’t imported to S.A. . Sorry guys

    I did talk to a local fabricator here in San Jose and was told that if I got a frame to copy or specs he could maje it for me. So if anyone out there is willing to take the tome to take multiple pics or measurements.....?🙏🏼
