Re: Binky!

Re: New potential products for 510's and Datsun from Mattndew76

It’s definitly an option. There is a local forge here that only works with aluminium. They seem very reasonable on the prices too. I would have to consult with them about price per unit and plug design. Another thing I am considering too is that if I can sell a substantial amount of these in the cur...
