    Some shoulder studs

    If anyone has a set (6) of shoulder studs, let me know. Resin would be fine but would prefer aluminum if they are not too expensive.

    Check with saint_nasty. He was selling machined aluminum ones a few months back. Not sure if he still has any available.

    My buddy has a CNC machine, so if I had a CAD file of the studs, he could cut them, but I don't know how to make a 3D CAD drawing. So that means I am going to have to buy some.

    Why don't you make your own?
    use keyboard keys, lightly sand the tops flat. epoxy bolts to the under side.
    Thats what I used....quick and cheap!

    Saint, I will let you know before the Super Bowl if I want a set or not. Thanks for the heads up.

    I actually think that's what they used. It's also what I did for my first version and they looked better (i.e. more accurate) than my machined ones. I may actually have to upgrade by downgrading. LOL

    Saint, I think I will pass for now. Too many other parts that I need first.
