Nice work Michael. I can't imagine where I'd be with my projects if not for Third Gen Automotive.

Michael,
To say you are stepping up is sure accurate and an understatement.....We know
Roy is smiling . Roy loved the phone too, he seemed to never tire of verbal contact.

Thanks a bunch Mike! I too would love them in stainless - be happy to spring for $50 as I don't need to watch them rust over time (even CAD plated stuff rusts - due to the wear that tools put on the finish).

Given that they will be plated I did not see the need in going with stainless, however I did have them quoted in stainless.

PS these will ďlikelyĒ retail for $38 a complete set in cadmium plated. If I went with stainless they would have likely been $50 or so...

If I went overseas they could have been produced cheap, but Iím trying to support the American industry as best as possible.
Good on ya Michael, and thank you for all you do for us old Ford V-8, 4 banger, and heck.....those six cylinder guys as well :-)
