Angle is on order and the square tubing is in the shop. I went ahead and bought 120 ft of it. Probably start cutting to size and milling the ends this week. That's all for now.

Tiffany from the metal supplier called at 4 today and the angle is on order but has to come from another supplier and want be here till next week.
I was ordering aluminum 2.5 angle and 3 inch angle 1/8 inch thick. None of there suppliers can get it anymore since its not a very common item so I had to move up to 3/16 its double priced but she said she's giving me a deal on the 1x1 square so I'll eat the extra since I have so many wanting these.

Now I bought enough 1 x 1 for 30 sets of seat brackets. The way I'm building these they will work for evo seats and probably any other after market seat on the market if not it want take much to modify the front brackets for anything to work in the car. This price is good on this run. Its alot of set up on my mill and different cuts and welds and I want be doing another run because of the amount of work verses the cost of materials next time.

Here's the steps I have to do yes I plan out every step in my head to see how much time it takes. Maybe someday I'll draw it up in free body diagram forms like JNR.
I have to rough cut to size
cut each angle on the 1x1
reset up for perpendicular cuts
cut the other end square
mill the slots in the 1x1
rought cut the angle for the inboard rear
mill the end
mill the angle
cut the slot
build the jig
tig weld the small angle to the 1 x 1
Now the fronts
rough cut the 2.5 inch angle
rough cut the 3 inch angle
mill the ends
mill the 2.5 down to a smaller size
mill the angles on the edges that will connect together
cut the slots for the mounts
For 30 sets to sell thats 60 1x1's to do, 60 small 1x1's, 180 inches of weld and 120 2.5 angles to prep and 120 3 angles to prep.

That's a hell of a lot of cuts, set ups and steps only reason I'm doing it is because its a group buy.

I'm getting the square tubing for what they paid for it years ago. Material price will be about 4 times as much next time or more, so I really don't foresee a next time.

So if you want in on this run put your name on the list, at the rate things are moving I'm not going to be done until probably the first of February or shortly there after. I'm building the amount on the list and that's it. I have a project here at the house I can use the square stuff on if the names don't show up and the amount of work on each set out weights the amount of stuff I need to do to get caught up. There's no reason to spend a week or more building something that may never sell or sell in a year or 2 when I have other things I need to get done.

With that said I have 17 spots filled and 13 open right now after that .....thats it.


To all of those so far on the list and to future add on's
Thanks
Curtis (Resident Fabricator and CEO of Curtisco industries)

Ok cutting stuff on the mill today and Garfield just sent a PM asking if I wanted a set of evo rails to use so this is coming together finally.

With the amount of set up for each step I went ahead and cut all the 1 x 1 I had so there will be 30 sets produced, easier to do it now than later. We're now at 19 sets claimed and 11 open sets. Thanks Curtis

Progress

The end next to the driveshaft tunnel is a straight cut and its milled and pictures show the end next to the outside of the car. So the big ones are ready for the mount holes to be milled and the bracket for the inboard rear mount that isn't lined up perfect. Thats all for now. Have a turbo to mod tomorrow for Milton and somemore stuff to do but hoping I can get all 60 tabs preped for the inboard.

Still working Guys... to the ones that has added there names to the list thanks.... bearings died in my miter saw (to much wobble in the blade) so I went and picked up a new one yesterday and with a new 50 dollar blade had a tooth come off. Heard the ping but before the brake stopped it the blade lost about 20 teeth and flipped the last piece out of the clamp and pushed it again the left side fence and bent it. So I tried to straighten the fence and it broke so I spend from about 5PM to 10 PM designing and building a 6061T6 fence for the saw. Lack bolting it up and cutting the last piece for the rear weld on tabs. But needed it for the front tabs and couldn't wait on ordering a replacement.

Vinny is coming up Friday and bringing the seats with him. I'll have them from Friday noon till Saturday at 5 so should get more measurements than I need and do up a completed set and get pictures of them installed. If that's the case should be able to start shipping mid to end of next week.

Hope so... I have a car swap met to go to Super Bowl Sunday.

That's all for now.
