Parallel-String Alignment Bars?

(Disclaimer: I looked around before I posted this, and can't seem to find an answer.)

Is there anyone out there that makes parallel-string alignment bars, colloquially known as toe bars for E46s? I worked at a race shop in college, and we had some for Spec Miatas that hung off of the radiator support and trunk, and hung down to just the right length so you had string running right at the wheel centers.

I'm considering making some for my E46 out of thin-wall aluminum tubing and some 3D printed joints/hooks, but if there's already a cheap (not $800 from MK) option out there, I won't bother.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know of anyone that makes an E46 specific set up, however Smart Strings are universal, popular, and around $400. If you've got the time and skills you can make them for a lot less obviously.
