Default G2 MLS copy bars

So they are already made, but since it is first batch and do not know how many batches I will make I put this here.

First things first, not happy with this batch personally and set me back way more on one area. Color. I do not have a "public" powdercoater in my area right now. So I chose to get them done in Cerakote which is far more expensive yet very very resilient to all chemicals and heat. I used it on my turbo manifold prototype back in the day.

This coating is far more thin. Very thin. So I had blended where the bends occured via my tooling, and the parts were to be sand blasted but maybe there was miscommunication. Anyways, my sanding marks can be seen through the coating up close. Then I found a hard ding on one , but it is on the back tube so can't really be seen. So if you wanted a more functional piece versus a show piece here ya go.

Because of this, this first batch will be $295 instead of $325 each+shipping.
People already on list will get this new price or can cancel. Seven bars total.
NEXT batch if, and when there is one, will be MORE EXPENSIVE at around $350ea

EMAIL for payment options and to get on list: Wingzero1@zoho.com

Test fitment on 3.5 car in next week. If these do not fit your standard car...your frame may be bent(your strut towers) from a fender bender/accident.

Okay well I didn't know these were being made. Nice project there Ben.

Trust me fellas this is probably the single suspension upgrade that ALL Legend owners NEED to invest in. This makes a tremendous difference in handling. I once replaced one on my coupe from a prior batch (ones that had NOTHING to do with Swift/Ben) that had a weld separate and that week without the bar the car felt like the large floating boat these cars are when on stock suspension. I couldn't get the replacement bar on fast enough. Jump on these fellas as I recall the ones I bought were both close to $350 and that has been YEARS AGO!

Thanks! Yeah these took some work to get to this stage. The welder I use knows what he is doing and had previously worked with him.

Hey Ben, I think I remember you saying you were trying to make a few subtle changes to the design to make them fit better or something? Are these an exact copy of the previous version, or are there some slight improvements?

These bars sit around 1/4 or higher from the top of the intake manifold to give more clearance and hopefully let a 3.5 fit...that will be checked shortly. The MLS would touch the intake basically at times.

Then I built a fixture and did it in such a way they should fit with a little less effort for those who know how hard it is to get MLS mounted sometimes. I mount these without lifting car.

I then made a change on the base plates to help with manufacturing.

For those that don't know, these bars require slight adjustment to the AC line bracket on the later year cars, and maybe on bracket that holds throttle cable as did the old copy bars.
