Default B4/T4 alluminum bulkhead and brace

Hey guys, the B4/T4 guys at my track have been having problems breaking there bulkheads and front braces, so I have machined some all. pieces for them, just wondering if anyone else may be interested in these, they are CNC machined from t6 all. block, with polished finish. I know trinity makes them, but they are kinda expensive for both pieces and they are that cheap looking blue ano'd finish (my personal opinion)
I can sell mine for about 20 bucks for the bulkhead and brace together , shipped.
I'll try to post some pics tomarrow.
I have 4 right now, but if there is more interest I can machine some more.
I can also do some custom machining of other parts as well, as long as I have something to work from. (no gears or shock bodys though).
email me any suggestions, I'm not doing this to get ritch, just looking to offset some of my own racing costs and help some people out!!!!

thanks, shawn

yeah there are a variety of bulkhead and braces out there, pretty cheap too. In my opinion the brace is pretty much all you need unless you need some extra weight up front. I know some people who would be interested in the bellcranks.

Sleapy, no prob!! thats the kind of input I'm looking for. as far as what else I can make, just about anything, as long as I have a patern (the old part). I am a machinist, have access to the entire shop, I make most everything on a HAAS vf-4 4 axis CNC machining center.
I'm working on a few different things right now, stearing knuckles, and hubs for GT, I'm waiting on some graphite plates to cut chassis for dirt oval cars, stuff like that.
email me with any requests or ideas
