All gone. Will be making them again if I ever find a welder that knows how to weld.

I use the stock RSM's with the modified Z3 reinforcement plates changed out annually. The modified plates let me changed them out from below without taking the coupe trunk apart.

I'm pretty sure I've got a spare set of Ron's tack-welded z3 reinforcement plates at home. If so, they are for sale. $65 plus shipping. That's what I paid Ron for them. They are new. I bought them to use on my track car, but the studs weren't quite long enough for the application. I use them on my street car and wouldn't do without them. I ended up using the Ground Control ones on my track car. If I don't have a set of Ron's I know I have at least one set of GC plates, not tack-welded.

Let me know if you are interested.

Ron note: Ground Control is now tack welding their bolts too.

I bought a pair of Ron's RSM's from him last year and ended up not using then. If you want them for a relative bargin, feel free to drop me an e-mail.

PS. I also have brand new unopened Kmac rear camber bushings and front Camber plates available.

Karl,
You have mail. I also wanted to see when you could get them to me since I am installing all of this this weekend hopefully.

I ended up going with a complete GC setup including their hybrid camber plates up front. For the rears, well, I don't think I'm going to bother with the rear camber. After lowering it seems fine.

This is also the reason why I ended up not using Ron's RSMs. While they will work fine, the GC setup came with RSMs with heavier duty bushings, etc., so I used those.

Cheers, Karl

JT-Designs. Sells a bottom mount RSM for $65. I used their products. Highly recommended.
