tie bars

good ? was wondering this myself. Last I heard there was a delay due to the manufacturer ordering the wrong size diameter bars, so .......a few weeks maybe?

Yeah I talked to MazdaRacer a couple weeks ago and he said they got set back a few weeks because they ordered the wrong diameter material. He gave them the wrong specs from another project. So he got the correct material ordered and that's the last I heard but I haven't tried to talk to him again. I'm not worried, he's an upstanding guy. Just be patient.

He has posted on here about them, a wrong size was ordered, was set back like a week, he was pushing the shop to make them as fast as hethey can, then get them powder coated asap. hes not slacking on it. if you need me to let me know i can give him a call and let him know you guys are still wondering or looking for a heads up.

sorry guys, been busy and haven't checked here in a bit.

I will be picking up the bars on Monday 10/18. Not sure what the extra week hold up was...only got to talk with the shop for 2 mins. but i will post again once i actually have them in hand and when shipping has started.

BTW, its CLUBprotege, not protegeclub :)

and for the record, the order mix up was my fault, not the shops fault.

I was preparing them to ship then i had a huge problem. The roof on my house had a leak and i had to shell out $2500 yesterday for repairs. So needless to say, i am in a world of hurt for cash to ship them.

I appologize once again for the delay (has not been a good 2 months for me) but please rest assured NOBODY is getting screwed and i will ship them as soon as i possibly can. I'm shooting for next week at the very latest, as i get a bonus check on monday. I will fricking take out a loan if i have to (seriously) because i don't want you guys to have to wait any longer than really neccessary.

I'm really sorry, please bear with me, it won't be long now.

Dude that freaking sucks about the leak in your roof. Must have been a good size leak. :( The bars wont' make it on the car till spring anyways so I'm not worried about you needing some time. :)
