    Been in Ireland since June 28th ish.
    Been a few other places as well.
    Any rate the machinist is going to be giving me a date when stuff will be turning.
    I have been talking to him via Email. Sorry its a slow process but sometimes small batches are like that.

    The machine shop had a lathe that was cutting my parts go down, So i was put behind.
    Plates should be final cut on tuesday.
    Its been a journey.
    But thats part of trying to get small runs of parts made for a reasonable price.

    Good things happen for those who wait. My suspension project is scheduled for this winter so not having these plates yet doesn't bother me at all. Thanks for the update Colin.

    The plan is Koni Sports and Swift Springs and possible upgrade on the sway bars. All depends on what pops up between now and spring.

    I have a cooper here on Old TSW springs and Koni yellows, its not bad.
    Id like to try a set of our Swifts on it.
    the Spec R is a great spring i always like selling them because i know they make customers happy.
    Assembling plates! Ill have to post up some pictures. Everyone likes pictures right?
