    Looks like this is already getting chewed up and spit out to the masses on other websites. Here we go again with "I hear they are making electric DeLoreans now" comments.

    Agreed. I appreciate all the hard work so far that has gone into designing manufacturing these parts. It's not every day that a NLA part is resurrected from the dead like this. It's been really cool...

    Awesome work, I think the back lighting is looking great.

    Just to confirm, you've got me down for one of these right?

    From what I've read over the years on various forums, it's generally not recommended to use poly bushing on the rear suspension links.

    The design of poly bushings require a lip on each half of...

    The upper control arm bushings are a press-fit design so if the bushings could be removed from the arms by hand, that is cause for concern. I see a lot of pitting in the photo which would indicate...

    I'm also running a DMCH all aluminum radiator. I installed it back in 2012 and have no complaints. The car seems to run cooler than with the OE radiator w/ plastic side tanks.

    Agreed. Even if pressing on the outside of the bushing the center sleeves are going to contact first and could damage the new bushing. Unless of course you cut or press the center out of the old...

    Zinc rich primer is still a thing when it comes to powder coating. I've created a few parts at work that call out Sherwin Williams EAS6-C0025. These get top coated in silver to match the finish of...

    It's a pain to do, but the final result will be worth it. I remember my back aching for days from sitting hunched over at the sand blasting cabinet. Lots of hours with a dremel too getting all those...

    Since you've got them all nice and clean, if I were you I'd consider touching up the welds with a sanding disc or abrasive wheel to smooth out the surface and get rid of the weld spatter. It can make...

    When I replaced mine a 27MM impact socket was the perfect diameter to press on the outer bushing casing and still have clearance to press the bushing through the hole in the control arm.

    I had to go back and try out that feature now that you mentioned it. That is also a nice feature for bouncing back and forth between the parts list and diagram. Also cool to hear about additional...

    I'm running Catia V5 R21 so it's cool to see someone else using Catia. The mouse navigation is unique and definitely takes some getting used to. If you've got a three button CAD mouse it's great.

    I was able to get it working also. Just had to adjust some security settings to allow 3D viewing and then I could click to open the file.

    Really impressive modeling work.

    I downloaded the PDF but it's coming up blank. Not sure if that's an issue on my end or with the file itself. Do you have it saved in any other format like STP or IGS?

    Overall I'm very happy with the suspension choices I made when I did my rebuild. Up front I have the Eibach lowering springs and SPAX shocks that DMCH / DMCMW was offering as their upgrade package...

    Thanks for the video! Very informative as well and it answered a question that I had.

    I was wondering if the fronts had a different appearance to the sidewall on the inside, similar to the rears...

    The upper control arm isn't directly attached to the shock/spring so that is why it can be removed independently. You'd still have to free the upper ball joint from the steering knuckle if you wanted...

    Interesting to learn more about what's trending in terms of design. I've noticed the textured look has become more popular in the past 5 years or so, at least on passenger/light truck tires.

    I'd...

    I'm not a huge fan of the textured side walls but overall they are good looking tires. The tire rack reviews...
