hmm I predict you will soon be smelling welding. I like it. It smells like progress. Same for automotive body paint for me. Good luck with your builds, Dave.

Unfortunately all I've been smelling the last few days is grinding dust from cutting and prepping all the pieces.

It doesn't look like much yet but this is ~10 hours of prep work:


And I still have some more to go!


---------------------------------------------
Buyers:

In initial post fitting info section I mentioned trimming a splash guard and exhaust bracket for clearance. I took some pictures today to clarify what needs to be done:

Here is the splash guard trimmed, the red highlighted section is where I cut with a razor. If this isn't removed then the arm can rub against it during suspension compression:



The red highlighted area is the part of the OE exhaust that I removed. TBH I took out more than needed and a half circle cut would be all that is needed for bar clearance:



Since many people probably have a custom exhaust you may want to check for clearance before you try and install the bar. Measure straight down 4.75" from the rear muffler exhaust hanger to see if you have room:




I believe the bars will be done and ready for heat treatment by the end of next weekend. I should be sending out stage 2 PM's this week.

Current status: Arms are completed, mounts about half done. I think I will be done with all fabrication by the end of the week. Pics:

Good news! Fabrication is done:




As soon as I hear back from the heat treat place I'll be dropping the bars off there.

It is possible, but I do currently have 2 that aren't spoken for if you want one now/soon.

I'm going to have to wait for round 2 I think. I just picked up a car and need to get it up and running 100% first. I bought your sway bars 10 years ago and loved them. Lucky this car i picked up has them as well.

Got the bars back from heat treat:


I dropped everything off at the powder coaters today. They estimated that everything will be done by the 19th. If all goes well they should be boxed and ready to start shipping that week.

PM's will be going out soon.

Got them back from powder coat early. Boxes arrive tomorrow and they should be ready to ship by Monday.






The powder coat cost came out cheaper than I calculated. If you already paid I will be refunding $10.

Prelude of the Month
Mine shows as delivered today, but I had it shipped to the border. I have plenty of other parts I plan on ordering before I make the trip down and probably won't be able to give driving impressions until next summer.
