    Buy a Daox rear sway bar - the bars are done!

    I've finalized the design for the Mirage rear sway bar. So, I am moving on to having a batch made by a local fabricator.



    The current plan is to order a batch at the end of next week. They should be made within 6-8 weeks and ready for the Midwest Mitsubishi Mirage Meet. If you're planning on coming, you can save some coin on shipping costs. The final price is $175 shipped to the US. If you're outside the US, shipping will cost a bit more. If you're planning on getting one at the meet, or pickup locally, you can save $25 ($150 total price).

    However, I have another way for you to save a bit more! Somewhat unfortunately, I have recently been laid off from my full time job. I was planning on financing this entirely on my own up until then. So, now you guys will get an opportunity. I am looking to get deposits for the sway bars. The deposit will help me finance the production and get these made. That deposit will be $100. For your trouble of paying up front, I am offering $10 off your total purchase price and a Mirage Forum decal. This opportunity will end after March 28th (next Wednesday). Your deposit will need to be in by then because I plan to order the bars later that week. I want to make sure that I have time for any delays so these will be ready by the meet.

    A little more info on the sway bars. All mounting hardware will be included. They will be powder coated in a semi-gloss black paint. It will look like an OEM part.

    Also, something to keep in mind. This is a prototype design. I have been running mine for about 2 months now with no issues. The version I am having made is actually going to be less prone to cracking, but it is a possibility. That being said, I am confident it will hold up. I would not sell something that I think is going to be a problem a year down the road. I just want to be completely up front about it. I don't have a year to test this bar, and I don't think you guys would like to wait that extra time either.

    Now, I have a bunch of people interested already. I will be PMing you guys to poke you about this:

    Thanks for the deposits guys!

    The layoff really isn't that bad. I have several side businesses that will help keep me afloat, and my wife works too. So, thankfully money really isn't a big deal that makes me anxious and scared. I have time, and I just have to figure out what I'd like to do next. I appreciate the kind words though!
