roller perches + set of 64.5-66 adjustable strut rods reconditioned

These parts came off my 64.5 Mustang about a month ago when I upgraded to my home built coil-over setup. They were built about 10 years ago and have less than 3000 miles on them. Even being low miles I cleaned, stripped, and repainted all parts as well as replaced a few things to make them "new" again.

Roller perches
built from new aftermarket ACP cores, after repainting them I replaced the rubber pads, pressed in new press studs and attached new all metal locking nuts. This was one of the first sets I ever built so they are not a pretty as the ones I make now but they function just as well as the ones I make now.

Adjustable strut rods
They have new jam nuts and were also stripped and painted. When I built these I did not have a lathe so an angle grinder was used to reduce the size of the shaft to 5/8" and then they were hand threaded. The die I used was medium quality, and due to "turning" the shafts down with an angle grinder the threads are not perfect, but they served me well. I have included a close up picture so you can see the imperfections. Upper mounts will need to be fabricated if you want to mount these in the OEM strut rod pockets, or you can drill a hole through the pocket and run them without an upper mount.

$250 + shipping for both the adjustable strut rods AND the roller perches together as one package deal.

sorry I posted this in the wrong section. I meant to put it in parts but apparently I wasn't paying attention. Please delete it.
