Three deposits made so far and one who is waiting to get paid. So I think we have four for sure. Anyone else that is for sure but waiting to do a deposit let me know so that others can get an Idea on the final price. Thanks Allan

I just did my deposit this a.m. hope more peeps get on board this a great opportunity to upgrade a 40+ year old suspension! Tubular arms are nothing new the Mustang crowd and GM guys they really work! I've done this with my Mustang and it made quite an improvement in handling!

Four have been ordered with another seriously considering. That would put the price at 435 or 430. Tomorrow the 17th is the last day to order. Cheaper than a set of Hotchkis uppers for a generic motors.

I will see if he will extend the deadline if you are sure you want a set. Also you only have to pay the deposit amount now and the rest when they are ready. Allan

They will start building them Feb 1st. There were six pairs preordered. Estimate to take 4 to 6 weeks to make them. They have left the preorder open in case any one wants in last minute.

Yes. They had my car down in their shop last week taking measurements. Once the first one is built, they will bring my car in again for test fit. once all is good on test fit they will continue building the rest.

Spent some time over the last few weeks drawing all of the arm parts and a ficture in cad. In the past we've lasered some parts and then built a fixture by hand, but this time I thought it would be cool to laser everything possible and thus have a very accurate fixture to weld the arms in.  

We're done with the upper bushings, and went ahead and added zerk fittings for easy greasing. In order to get the factory crossshafts in, you'll have to barely "de-hump" the 4 high spots of the crossshaft shown in the pic. It was close, so little material needs to be removed here. We could increase the bushing ID but then the factory replacement Energy Susp. 4.3111G couldn't be used. So we felt like this was the better choice. 

All the lasered parts are supposed to be delivered this week. They will go together pretty fast after the first one is done and we check fitment on a factory car.

plate fixtures we drew up and lasered for a short run of#torino upper control arms. They move the balljoint back and allow some caster for better handling.#littleshopmfg #littleshopparts
