just trace it on some paper and take a pic of it next to a ruler

you can probably just scale it in photoshop and the holes will be right

Sammich

true...trace it and give me one dimension (diameter of the circle and thickness of the plate/hook) to scale it off of and i can try to get it made...i just wanted to test it out

when I read "wet shot" I almost said "you spelled gt35r wrong", but I see you're boosting now. good job tree!

Was it a straight trade for the 240? even with issues, seems like you got the short end of the stick.

you still with beth?

haha, I'm an engineering student, it'll never be done.

But the "current" goal is to build the f20a in it, big boost, rev to 9500. Make 5XX.
Drive a few months.
Take it all apart, fab up a rear end, K-frank build, big boost, awd, 6spd.

Can you measure the gap where the I-bolt goes on those camber arms? I'd like to see if I can make them work for my car. Nobody makes anything for mine...
