That sounds great! Sorry I was not able to get you the GCM tower faster.

If someone would be willing to send there GCM tower to me for a little R&D to get everything placed right.

The DD upgrade is in the works now and if I could find the Blue Monkey tower I have I would do that as well.
There's top shelf innovation right there! Everyone wins.
I'd like to see or hear of your GCM plate developments, and we are happy to sell your steering kit as well, or make plate changes as needed to match your product. Looks great, and I'd be glad to send the zillion steering seekers to your shop for this bell crank setup! YEAH!

Thank you
When I get it all ready I be sure to let you know. I am going to do my best not to have to do any changes to your shock tower as it is a very good looking piece.
A zillion that is allot.

Just looking, it appears your top plate, steering combo would already work with the derwood uprights. And the other derwood parts are for steering which is what your selling. So I don't think you have to do any R&D there.
Looks like a great product. I look forward to seeing it in future builds on the forums.

Couple shots of the kit

Seriously beefy top plate! (yes, the steering screws are upside down...I know I know...)

As far as I see my top plate steering would work with the upright tower.
I was speaking of my steering arms working with the DD kit to replace the DD arms that use bushings.
I have got it all worked out for my bearing arms to mount to the DD top plate but the retrofit standoffs are time consuming to produce. I do not know if it is worth it.

I run the derwood steering. I've manage to bend my top plate at the steering arm tabs. Yours looks beefier. I'm thinking if I am going to replace bushings for bearings I might as well do the whole steering kit.
So I agree with you, it may not be worth R&D for a retrofit to the dd upper plate.

Well they worked for you and I the problem is I have found that not all the DD top plates are the same. Even between yours and mine there were differences. If I going to make an upgrade kit it needs to work for everyone. I do not want to make something that dose not work like it should.

Pockets70 and I have also been able to bend the top plate at the steering arm tabs. Mine is much stronger there, some say overkill. As for R&Ding a retrofit kit I have it done (with the top plate I have) but the stand offs are time consuming and with the differences in top plates I have found, I would have to do the kits one at a time. So the time spent and cost I would have to charge, I think makes them not worth it also.
