I have all the drawings done and ready to start making sets. Who needs a set? Retail is going to be in the 500 range group buy prices will be less but how much less depends on how many buyers.

Who is interested? Please note these are going to similar to the gpr sets not as nice as the RD sets thus priced much less.

The RD sets are the premier better then oem sets. Mine will be laser cut and then hand formed over wood bucks similar to my prototypes here.Attached Image

Ben used my oem set for a template so while not the same cosmetically, the fit should be very good.

If memory served the GPR sets sold for 395 a set on ebay and that was when dave shepherd was still with us and owned GPR. I plan to have heat provisions in here as well. A block off will be supplied.

Dave must be gone now 10 years so price wise not sure how I will be able to compete. The laser cuts them selves are super inexpensive it will be semi labor intensive as they will be hand made.

Going to shoot for 400 for group buy if at all possible.

This will also be a nice start for anyone considering a 3.6 conversion. That engine requires a lot of mods to the engine tin so it wouldn’t make any sense to buy the super nice resto design pieces.

Did you ever think about doing these in aluminum?

I would love to be in the market for a set no time soon (if ever).
I always thought aluminum would be a cool way to go.
