Hood Latch Tie bar modification

Has anyone remade the tie bar that mounts between the head lights that the hood latch bolts to? I am needing to develop something that provides a little more clearance and looking for some info.

Most people just cut it to clear intercooler pipes. I haven't seen anything made that wasn't a one-off bar.

I'm literally working on one right now for my double pass radiator kit. Or you can run hood pins and delete that thing altogether. Been running that way since the engine swap

I did not know. I thought the timing was pretty incredible
