    You guys do good work. I would love to take some of the guys who call themselves "restorers" out fishing with me...

    Very nice work. Glad to see another company making parts for us to buy. Most of us had to make some of the parts you are designing. Will continue to follow.

    Thanks guys.

    We definitely don't claim to be a restoration company but it is much better for us to build our own to how we want and need it. I am excited to see this one complete.

    The front subframe is in the weld shop. We have repaired all the body mounts and blue printed the a-arm mounts to make sure they are perfectly inline and at the same location side to side. We are grinding out all the old factory welds and completely welding the front subframe and preparing it for powder coat.

    We also continue to work on the new frame rails and mounts for the cage.

    I'm so glad to see that you've decided to enter the 2nd gen market more. I used a lot of your components on my previous 4th gen and was extremely pleased with the quality of everything, not to mention the customer service. I live close, so I even made a trip out to your shop at one point to pick up some hardware. I look forward to seeing what you come up with, especially in the rear frame department. My car needs some love in that area!!

    Do you plan on offering replacement parts for the rear frame?

    We are now finishing up the shock extension kit. The kit is turning out really good and will be available shortly, the shop is just starting to laser cut production pieces.

    Is the shock extension piece going to be a bolt on ?
