Guys,

I found another shop to make these brackets. Sorry to keep you all waiting so long, but I was hoping that my usual shop would get their laser cutter back up and running by now and it hasn't happened yet.

For those who are still interested, what do you think of using stainless steel in lieu of powder coated regular steel? I know azbanks wants his uncoated, so as long as noone objects, I'll get this batch made out of 304 SS. They will be stronger than regular "hot-rolled" steel, and you can still paint them if you would like to match them to your engine bay.

Thanks!

Just checking in after I've had mine for a while....

I still love it. No torn firewall like my old car. Well made, holding up great. Awesome investment. A must have piece for anyone running a heavy duty clutch setup.

I'm running a spec stage 2+ clutch setup, 6 puck on one side full face on the other....10.5" disc. Stiff pressure plate. Happily putting on worry free miles!

Thanks again.

Guys, I'm going nuts here. I just received 10 of the brackets from a new supplier, and they are not quite right. They used thicker gauge metal (stainless steel), and they MIG welded them rather than TIG. The main problem is, the dimensions and angles are a little off from my design. They may very well work, but I can't guarantee them. And the MIG welds are not corrosion resistant like a stainless wire TIG weld would be.

So, I hate to keep people waiting, but I'm going to have to go back to my original supplier (their laser cutter is back up and running now).

In the meantime, I'm going to offer the 10 brackets I have sitting here for half price and (as usual) a full refund if it doesn't work for you. So $50 plus shipping for these 10 only. Pm me if you're interested in one of these and I'll provide my PayPal address.

Sorry again to everyone who has waited for so long.

Can you show any side by side pics of the originals vs the new ones? How far off from spec are the new ones?

I'm not worried about corrosion since I'm going to powder coat it and I live in Arizona. The only salt we get around here is on our margaritas.

I don't have any of the original ones in stock, so unfortunately I can't take any side-by-side pics, but I can take some pics of the new ones and post them here tonight. Dimensionally, I'd say they are up to 0.030" too long in the critical areas. The angles are a little off as well, maybe up to 1 degree. I had a guy test fit one and he said it was a little bit too long, but probably could be lightly tapped into place. Better yet, if you're willing to take a little extra time, I'm sure you could grind down some of the bracket to get it to fit perfectly. The brackets are made of metal that is thicker anyway, so grinding a little bit away shouldn't be a problem.

PM sent a couple of days ago. I may have interest in a few of the thicker "not quite right" units

Anyone heard from vt951 recently?

Hey, sorry I've not been very responsive lately. My day job has been extremely busy. I still have most of the thicker brackets, so selling you a few of them is no problem. I'll pm you my PayPal address.
