145 QV OMP strut brace problem -> can't fit it


i've finally got an OMP strut brace for my 145 QV and it doesn't fit!!!!!????? they said to me that because the brake cylinder? and the brake fluid are fitted where the strut brace should be. so anyone knows if this brake cylinder can be moved a little lower or any other solution???

Some of the 155 models have the same problem - the brake master cylinder sits where the strut brace wants to go.

I think the solution will be to make a new bracket for the master cylider and move it out of the way slightly.

well i don't really know how much in the way it is but i guess is not much. maybe 1cm will be enough. i hope so. they just told me that they weren't able to fit it and that they rather didn't move the brake cylinder and that i should take the car to the dealer. so i guess i'll wait until the next service and see what they can do.
but i don't understand how can the OMP sell strut braces which don't fit if they are made for 145 2.0 QV!!!?? god damn italians
