G1 "Lowering" control arms GB

Ok boys and girls we are now looking at the chance to correct our front camber problems that come with lowering the G1 Legend. I have personally seen Fut's 90 and had it in my shop. I will say this is the best job I have ever seen on a G1. The Camber is PERFECT! So...I had a talk with Fut and he had a talk with his fabricator. We CAN have these arms too! They may seem a bit pricey at first but really they are not! At approximately $250 per set think of all the tires you have killed in less than half their normal life. Think of how much better your car will look with the tires sitting straight like they are meant to. What I want to do here is find at least 5 interested hopefully more so we can drive the price down even more. Look guys I AM DOING THIS for both my G1's with or without a GB but now is our chance to get this done at an affordable price. Also if your ball joints are crap, I can purchase BRAND NEW control arms for around $70 each. then you can have those modded.
C'mon everyone jump on this and lets see how many of these we can do.






Look at that Camber...Perfect

Oh Yeah, Please if you aren't serious PLEASE don't bother posting up. I am doing this to help out my fellow Legend lovers and will not have it dragged out over months and months....If this feeler proves a strong interest, Fut and I will manage the GB and make it happen but if not he and I will have the only correctly lowered G1's in existence so dont miss out on this!

C'mon guys I've sent one set to the fabricator for Fut. All of you who showed interest, We need to know if you're really in. The fab needs to build a jig for this project and he is REQUIRING 10 sets or he will charge for the jig. If we don't get 10 we will just have to let this go. THAT WOULD REALLY SUCK! So if you're really serious it's time to get on the list and we will be accepting payment starting in a couple of weeks.

List for Mod with new arms $350:
1) BDAZZG1 (Tony)
2) Fut
3) l4zy415 (James)
4) sam o nela (Gabe)
5) Car2n
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

List for Mod only (supply your own arms) $230:

1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

Remember I need 10 purchases of new arms also or the price goes back up to $150 for the arms which will make it $380 for the modded arms.

As of this moment, the only completed units in existence are on Fut's car. What you will get is both upper control arms modified and reinforced to correct the negative camber problem associated with lowering the G1. They will work for ALL G1 Coupes and Sedans lowered 1-2 inches. If you opt to have me supply the new arms they will include Brand new bushings and ball joints. with enough orders the fabricator will actually build a jig to crank these things out at a reduced price. I can supply both NEW arms with ball joints and bushings for $140, which is my cost on them, and it is the $250 for modding them that we want to drive down with the GB. If you have good arms we can mod yours and save you the extra $140.
I will see if Fut can post up some pics of his. But for now here's a pic of his car from our meet.

Here is a good close up of Fut's front End...


Now notice the Fuc*ed camber on mine and Ferjie's sedans (end cars) and Fut's (setting next to my Sedan) looking so good...

What this means is there is nothing out there to correct camber on a G1 and in my professional opinion the modification work done to Fut's control arms superior. The fab shop that did it knew what they were doing.
I am an extreme performance driver...I regularly exceed 120 MPH in my Legend...I drive it hard because it's fun...I enjoy my Legend to the extreme. I am a Professional and a Shop owner who IS going to use these modded arms on my car. This will be great for all who have lowered or want to lower their G1

Stock upper control arms will be modified.

ROFL, no wonder you are dying for these Tony, do the outside of your tyres even come in contact with the ground?

Fut's sedan... drooling.
