    Thanks. That’s helpful info. I am reluctant to get the aluminum when I know the SS is substantially heavier and I will definitely notice a difference. That being said, it could be too heavy I suppose..... I’ll stay tuned.

    Yes I know. I just looked and it would be almost impossible to change out the collar anyways.

    They both made it. I also did the indexer operation that finishes the lugs, but didn't take a picture of that. Ready for final lathe op, and then engraving.

    @mesojdm and I will be teaming up to develop one, I just need to pick up a knob to get it started. Ball is in my court. If nobody steps up to loan me one by next week ... I'll just order the TRD Pro AT knob and sell it off when I'm done with it.

    Edit: Received product and couldn't be happier. Good stuff

    It says delivered in canada. But I find that hard to believe its delivered to my house. Mostly because it was literally across country and less than a week. So i think it meant delievered to the Canadian Hockey Player Post Person. They should be skating here anytime

    :canada:

    Ya, there are a few stages...GTFO of USA, like 2 days tops. Party a week or so in MTL at customs, then boogey on out toward YYC. So let's call that 4 days generous, then a full 24 hrs getting processed at your local and the following day in your mitt.

    Do the math with your order date, then let me know how far I was off lol

    EDIT: that pic was offensively huge lol...deleted

    Got me some knob and it feels sooo good in the hand! maybe I should rephrase that.
    I asked Rick if he could machine the entire letter/numbers out instead of doing outlines because I thought it would take some paint inlay better. Apparently it was a bit of a PIA but he worked it out. I laid in some MGM paint with my touch up pen. I dig it! Thanks Rick!
