If this is, in fact, the last batch...are they all spoken for?

This is a fact the last batch and they have all been bought/paid for/shipped, etc. D&D Chassis officially closed the doors @ 5:00 pm EDT Fri. 14Mar14.

Thanks everyone, I think this made a total of about 80 sets made over the last 18 months.

Hmmmm. Just checked on mine online, and it says by 3/21. I wonder if they got stuck somewhere, as they are still showing somewhere in WV as of this morning.

Will keep you posted.

Thanks!

That's a LOT of hole drillin'!

And thank you AGAIN...just checked the tracking # on our two sets....scheduled to arrive tomorrow! Still may arrive today though, because unlike FedEx (who won't delivered until the scheduled date even if it's sitting at the facility here for two days) UPS *will* go ahead and deliver if it arrives early.

That's only what some people want you to believe, it took less then an hour for a pair by hand. Just use a good degreaser and get the rough black off and then use Mothers and follow the directions when the polish get blacks wipe them with a clean cloth mico fiber works the best no grinding or buffers needed. Did it both ways and bet you couldn't tell me which set was done by machine or hand.....They then become PRETTY, PRETTY, PRETTY..... But it's best to just use them they way you get them, I don't want anyone to have PRETTY poles like mine.......

No I did 1/2 of a pole and said screw this. Then I did it the easy way and I bet you can't tell the difference even you........ Buffing wheel is to dam dirty after I already spent the money for the compound and 2 wheels.
