      now to be a pita but i think your friend could move a lot more by selling these 25 bucks a set..... just a thought

      No, your absolutely right we have thought about this so if buying two price will be 40dls. and 20 dls for any additional. If buying 1 it will be 25dls.
      It's just not worth the time and work, it's not about the money because there really isn't any or very little to be made. He has agreed to make some for me and also to help out the G60 folks.
      Thanks Pete

      the production bushings will be made of 7075 aluminum with high quality high temp o-rings.

      I hope the 7075 is because he already has this in stock. Thats some expensive aluminum. I would be interested in set made with the bronze or even Delrin. The aluminum will start to oxidize and corrode over time unless you can get it anodized.

      All the bushings will be made of 7075 aluminum. 7075 T6 although not the best has great corrosion properties. There is also the weight advantage of aluminum you don't want a heavy bronze or brass bushing.
      Take a look under the hood of your Corrado there are many aluminum parts 7075 T6 aluminum will last just as long or longer. you could also use wax to add additional protection to your aluminum parts under the hood.

      Bushings are here and they are AweSomE. Very light compared to the brass and very strong 7075 T6 aluminum. I'm picking them up tonight when I get off work. I will also post some pics up tonight of the new bushings.
      Pricing will be as discussed earlier in this post.
      25 shipped for 1
      40 shipped for 2 and any additional will be 20.
      This is a beutifull product my friend did an awesome job.
      I will be in charge of selling them my paypal is

      Here are the pics I have 12 bushings two are for my G60, I have ten left.
      You pick up the brass one in one hand the aluminum in the other and it feels like you have nothing in your hand compared to the brass one.
      It's a nice and tight fit.
      We thickend the flange on the aluminum and made it stick out a couple of mm on the other end to hold the entire width of the tensioner eyelet.

      Shipped out 2 sets of bushings and a single one today. All who paypalled were shipped out today.
      I could not get delivery confirmation for the United Kingdom address the postal service did not offer it for the overseas address the other two U.S. addresses were shipped with delivery confirmation.
      Thanks guys I know you will be happy with these bushings.

      Thanks guys. I have one last bushing left so please no more paypalling unless you only need 1 and it's the last one till my friend gets to the rest of the stick of 7075.
      For now enjoy your Billet Tensioner bushings.
      Thanks Pete
