So it’s that time again ladies and gentleman. As many of you know I made and sold the adapter brackets to mount Z06 Corvette calipers on Silverado SS trucks using Baer disks. The first batch I made was almost 9 years ago. I’ve made more smaller batches along the way. Currently I am sold out of the adapter brackets. I was not planning on making any more due to more than a few reasons. For starters, all my contacts and hookups at machine shops have either moved on or changed fields. I will no longer be able to get any discounted rates for small batches of the machine work, the raw materials, hardware or anodizing. This means I will have to do one single large batch. That means I will have to put out more than $10,000 to make a batch. That is significantly more than what i paid years ago. Now I don't have anything close to enough to sink that much money into these brackets. But I have had more than a few people recently persistently asking about purchasing brackets.  So to help offset the initial cost I will be offering them to anyone that purchases them before they are finished at a discounted price.

Pre-sale price

Front and rear $400

Front only $250

Rear only $200

 

After pre-sale price

Front and rear $450

Front only $275

Rear only $225

 

 

Here is a link to the How-to I wrote for anyone not familiar with this upgrade.

Currently the front brackets are being made.  I still have a limited number of rear brackets from the last run.  More rear brackets will be made shortly after the current batch of front brackets are done.  FYI, this very well could be my last so get them while you can and spread the word.  If you refer anyone that buys a set of brackets and they mention your name, I’ll send you a few bucks for your time.

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. So the forum went down for a bit but it’s back up.  Had a few people panic. Don’t worry gentlemen. Even if the forum were to go away, you will all get tour parts. I’ve been selling these brackets for nearly a decade. Even when USPS busted open a box with two full sets and wouldn’t refund my money, I made sure the customer still got his. Anyway, front brackets are back from machine shop.  Waiting on anodizing shop at this point.  There is a bit of a back up due to a huge order ahead of me.  They estimated late December.  I’m currently working on getting rear brackets machined.  Might be able to get them done before fronts are anodized, but don’t know for sure.

Pre-sale is closed.  Thank you to everyone for your patience.  This forum is full of some really great people and a lot of great info.  There were a couple of delays with the anodizing shop, but all the brackets sold during the pre-sale have shipped.  If you missed out on the pre-sale, I still have more.  Contact me [email protected]  I will get back to you ASAP.

Hey rudy, I was referred by someone on PT.net, that you were running another batch, what is the date for the presale cut off?

As of right now, there is no exact date. The pre-sale is to help with the huge upfront investment I have to make in order to offer these brackets.  When I have enough pre-sales to cover a good chunk I’ll stop pre-selling. Don’t have an exact date yet. 
 

Front brackets should be done from the machine shop early next week. Then off to anodizing shop. I’m looking into options for the rear brackets.
