I'll probably run the cost both ways-mild steel and stainless and then we can all decide. I'm leaning towards stainless, though.

Aluminum makes no sense, considering the stiffness difference.

But I'm in for a cheap stainless, or maybe even mild, steel brace.

If we can get this launched, think some sort of X-Brace will follow?

I doubt it. I'm planning on cheap and easy. This isn't a product, it's a service for the DIY community so I'm going to make it as easy as possible on myself (I'm not trying to make money on this) and still offer a low buck option.

Jesus, are you really this lazy and clueless? Do a search on miata.net, the merits have been discussed at length.

I hope to have good dimensions and the prints drawn in a month, then 4-6 weeks for production. I'd guess they will be ready to ship in January. It looks like there is enough interest assuming that the pricing holds. I will update the thread when I have them drawn and a firm price.
