We're cool. No sweat, Bro. Spelling and typographical errors are one of my pet peeves. Too many people rely on spell check. It's as though people have forgotten how to use correct spelling, grammar and syntax these days.
The k-member (even if it was a drag racing piece) was pretty robust. And it was NOT powder coated, but painted. I do remember that clearly. The paint was black and quite glossy, but it did not have the feel of powder coating.
I don't know if Highlander is around, but we installed the unit in his garage Eons ago.
Like I said, we (meaning a whole lot of people, including my wife) made a ton of runs on it. The mounting ears where the a-arm bolted on rusted off, due no doubt, to that drain hole.
As to the OP, call GMS and see if you can get the exact dimensions and measure the one the guy has for sale. If it is straight and corresponds to the measurements given, then double check the welds, and if all is good, offer him a price. Used parts are the life blood of anyone who races. Not many people can just go out and buy new parts all the damn time. No one who actually WORKS for a living can afford to do that.
Good luck with it. And here is what I have been tossing around the track:
Those pics are before the TSW wheels and Toyo R888's but with Z06 repros and Hoosier A6's. And the wife beat me at that event. It all went downhill after that. The only upside is after she beat me she said, in public and in front of a bunch of people, that she wants a Z06.
Anyone want to throw a bone and recommend a good exhaust for a 2011 5.0 Mustang with no drone?
