More then just a tweak plate... This plate will take the science out of setting droop. You will easily be able to fine tune with better accuracy and repeatability.

I'll be back in the shop tomarrow, hope to finish Saturday.
Update...found out the 2.0 and 2.5mm chassis are different on the outer profile near the narrow end. Had to mod plate to fit both...should be good now though.

Are these parts (interested in the tweak plate especially) going to be available to the 'rest of the world'? I live in the UK and would like to get my hands on one?

There are some significant differences. I left the plate wide and one end long to stand onto an optional stand and work on both top and bottom of car. The wide plate being the same surface will allow you to check droop at arms easily while leaving the wheels on. (the IRP was same size as chassis). Also, it is designed with clamps instead of bolts so no chassis holes need to be drilled.

Yes they will ship worldwide. I will likely run a thread and get a show of hands on those interested and run just slightly over. If I run too many on something like this, I stand to loose too much.

Sounds good - will be around here for a while (once my Mi3.5's have arrived) so will keep in touch.
