I did go through 2 revisions to get the weight down and there's lots of machining time solely for weight reduction. But those plastic ones do weight nothing!

Good to have some great assistants here providing proper documentation.

I've got all the material stock cut and ready to start machining, just need get the machine setup now and start plugging away. The machining time is pretty substantial so to finish the batch will be a bit. But it's at the top of the to-do list now.

Are you planning to build them out for all of us?!

Do you know what you plan to sell them for?

I have enough material to build a dozen sets of them, so that's the plan for this round.

When I get around to the anodizing I was planning on a dark grey (looks a bit classier than black). But I could also do a pop color like red or blue? Thoughts? In the end I will only do one color so it's not choose your own adventure.

Dark grey. I think the gray will be a nice OE touch.
