Is it just me that thinks GPM parts were made out of cheese. All the bits I had were either bent, or I ended up bending them..

Those posts are just stand offs not made by GPM but I have been looking into getting some stud connectors so should pretty rugged. As to will be the diff hangers, dare I say better than the GPM ones as these will be made from T6 alloy.

So final call before I put an order in anyone interested I am willing to ship anywhere as long as you cover postage. Depending on many people want them they will be around £40 per set.

before this gets into a sale thread this really isn't the place for it. If you pick them up on your own and offer them in the b/s/t section its not breaking any rules but this one kinda went past that. Leaving it because it is some good info and a fix to an issue for now. lets not make make this info disappear please...Thanx

After a little chat with Todd I want to clarify this is not a for sale thread but if people do ever want any they can get them by contacting me by pm. When I do get some I will upload pics of them and how they are fitted.

So after some time I've recived my custom alloy front diff hangers. The delay really was Tim who made them has only just started producing alloy parts and was waiting on a new finishing tumbler to make them all nice and shiny and smooth.
So when everything did turn up my set went in and after a day they looked like they needed more time so the went back in for a few more hours and when the came out the were over done and had started to melt. Tim let me know what had happend and as he had previously told me I would have them by the weekend. So he cut me a new set and finished them by hand so I could have them and get my Procat built.
So here they are first quick pics

Will get them fitted in the next couple of days.
