I gave the shop the prints last week to quote, but with the holidays and all, I haven't heard anything back. I planned to check with them today.

Got the pricing back. Here's what we are going to do.

Set of frame rails, six bolt holes per side, no lightening holes. Rails will be 14 gauge stainless steel.

All stainless steel bolts, nylock locking nuts and washers will be included.

$92.00+$15.00 UPS shipping to lower 48, for a total of $107.00 shipped!

Lead time is 4 weeks after order.

Time for firm commitments. I need to order 30 sets to get this price. I want to order in the next week or two. I'll start a new thread for reservations.

are you sure that the hole spacing isn't going to put the bolts in a bad spot on the other either side? AKA, are we going to drill into the seat frame, or a fuel line, etc.

*edit* just went back and checked... it's all good and I'm in.

That is a great price. I have the v8roadster rail kit for my swap. They came with the trans mount kit and all. 4 bolts/side seems enough but I'm sure 6 might be a slight improvement.

Some way to remount the wiring loom that runs from the front of the car to the battery would be nice. You can see from this picture

that the v8roadsters covers the holes to the clips that hold the loom up. I drilled more holes and used zip ties but something built into the rails would be a bonus.

I am in for a set - but please work out a shipping to Johannesburg, South Africa post code 1613 - USPS with tracking number works for most things getting to me.

Cheers

The final product specs are 14 gauge or so I read. How does this compare to FM's?
17lbs (shipped) is heavier than FM's 10lbs (naked).

Are there any pictures of the prototype?

14 gauge is the same as theirs. IIRC, the cacluated weight from cjernigan was around 14 lbs for the ones with holes, plus 1.15 for no holes, so around 15 lbs. With packaging, etc added in, I rounded up. I'd rather estimate the shipping weight heavy and have it be lighter. I'm sure FM's new ones with lightening all over including the flange puts them at around 10. The laser cut lightening holes id more effiecient than punching some round holes. This was intended to be low cost and stronger at the sacrifice of a few pounds.

Excellent I don't care for 5lbs actually.
