Yup, like I posted in another thread, I am down.




Tomorrow if my halfshaft install goes well, I should also be changing the oil up on a rack, so I'll snap some pics of them installed on the car.

To all who are interested in my TCA's-they're still available although I'm running them off in small batches of 2-4 prs.

I (think) I have 2 pr.'s available from stock and another pr. ready to go to the TIG welder. Stuff from inventory will be shipped in under a wk. Any fabricating/welding/powder painting takes about 3 wks.

Yes, the price has risen from my initial offering. Materials have gone up a bit, but what's really hurt me is the drop in the US $. 95% of my materials are sourced here as well as the machining, welding and powder painting which must be paid in Canadian bucks. C'est la vie.

There will be a website coming shortly with all my fabricated products for Contours, Mondeos & Cougars.

PM or email me if interested. Got 1 person already.

That's Lee. I didn't get 'em from him like 2 months ago when it first appeared in the Class. - precisely for the same reason; but I am not sure about $185, I guess it was more...

So since I had the car on a lift so I could do my halfshaft and oil, took a few shots of the tubular arms installed... enjoy:

Big shot of both of em:

Do they make little covers for the lube points so they don't get all grimy?

My first post on the TCA's offered them at a base price of $185 which included an economy type rod end. Stepping up to a heavy duty rod end was optional at $20. Since no one ever bought them with the econo rod end I do not offer it any longer and the price reflects this accordingly.

I also offered (& continue to do so) an additional cost stainless bushing & hardware option, which most people have requested also. This explains why the prices are different-plus my material costs have risen a bit since I first ran them off.

Brad - your stuff looks like a great and high quality piece of work, thanks for continuing to help us. I wish you could make some more stuff for Contiques.

Kane - thanks, very useful pix; so how long it took you personally to put 'em in? Like 40 minutes?

I didn't... I had the tire shop put them in when they did the new tires and had an alignment.

But... they are very quick to change out. I've bent my original passenger one and swapped it out in probly 20 minutes once the car was jacked up.

I was suprised when I got done... I figured it would be harder.
