I think these pics are good to show you how. Modeling Pimp made this, I would use copper tubing and wire.

thats what i used as a guideline ;) the copper tube is about 1/2" long and i used a paper clip instead of brass wire

the brass is in a U shape peice i made with styrene to make mounting it easier


BTW thanks for using my car as a refrence pic BigPoppa
;)
