Are you going to be offering those bars as a kit to add to the TCI front suspension conversion? It looks sweet!

The bars on this car will only fit the '67. We ended up making some for the early cars about a year ago but each time they still required "cut to fit". We had sold a few of them but we were losing money each time. They'd have to sell for $700+ (plain) for us to make it worth while.

Ryan @ Stang-Aholics would offer a group buy if demand is high enough but that is up to him.

how about a cut and weld together kit? That would make it fit more years , correct?
Just a thought.
I'd buy one

What I'd really like to see them do is adapt the adjustable down bars we use on the Novas onto the Mustang, Fairlane and Falcon front ends. It may not be as many bars but it would certainly be a lot easier to package and much less expensive.

The body is on the rotisserie so Danny can smooth out the floor boards. It seems like a waste of time to me but it's not my car so what can you do.

Most of the parts are back from powdercoat so the mad dash to assemble everything has begun.
