Well everyone, the day is approaching.

I have all the tech details and all the bugs (that I can find) worked out of the design.

With all the time it's taken thus far, and the brackets being VERY labor intensive, I wanted to have the brackets made before I announced a group buy. The bars and the anodizing are simple, but I don't have the cash to front for it so this will be a 'group buy'.

I just received enough metal for a batch of 10 pairs of brackets, and a new band saw. The brackets will be made in the next 2 weeks.

The group buy for "GonzoSport" removable rear strut tower bars will begin Saturday July 7th, 2007.... 07.07.07

More details will be coming soon.

Our website isn't ready yet (because I haven't sent Tim any text yet) but...G7

Not set in stone yet, but solidifying......

Looking like $130 for confirmed V.I.P. ElantraClub Members, $150 for everyone else.

Shipping should be <$10.

**********

Made of 6063 aluminum with stainless hardware.

Each bracket is about 1+hrs labor at drill press, band saw, grinder, sander, and polisher plus some fun elements that must be finished by hand.

I'm interested, but not right away.... I ended up blowing the mod budget on mere junk when I coulda had a strut bar!

I'll try to scrape it together though, maybe later this summer....

Congrats on the rollout though! This is an exciting time to be an XD hatch driver!

In taking a page from Mr. Ford's book..... whatever color you want so long as you want black. biggrin.gif

If you REALLY have to have a custom color ... the MINIMUM it will cost me PER COLOR is $60 ... and that's a number I was given 6mos ago.
