    Those are looking bad ass Joe. I really like the countersunk allens, nice and flush. :thumb:

    I will wait for our deal to come around someday.

    ~Update~

    I discovered some issues with the countersunk bolts today. I'm going to have to remove them as an option for a week or so till I can get the issue solved. The buttonhead bolts are still an option though. If you want to wait for the countersunk option, you can still place your order...So order up! :D

    So what kind of issues do they have with the countersunk Allens? The only thing i was thinking is that you can't get a lock washer in there. Maybe a star washer. :thinking:

    Not that....

    Since the countersunk hole centers the tapered bolt perfectly in the hole in the ring, like a lugnut centers a rim using the countersunk hole in the rim, all of the holes in the ring need to be perfect in relation to the center of the holes in the housing. I had just used an old stock cover and a transfer punch to transfer the hole pattern over to a ring that I am using as a "master part/template". I drill the holes in the ring a bit bigger than the diameter of the bolts, which allows for alittle misalignment of the bolt holes. That works fine with conventional bolts, but not with the countersunk ones. When I tried to bolt a cover to my test housing using the countersunk bolts, about half of them bolted down on center, the other half did not, because my template was not perfect. I have to wait till my new order of rings shows up on Friday, then I can figure out a way to make an exact, perfect template of the bolt pattern. I think I might just take a gasket or maybe even the entire housing to a machine shop and have them make something up for me. I tried using a gasket to lay it out myself, but it just didn't really work out...the gasket was so floppy that I couldn't get it to lay perfectly flat and in the same position while I marked the holes, also the gasket isn't thick enough to allow the use of a transfer punch. lol, So far it's been one little stupid issue like this after another, over and over. I sure hope all the little kinks work themselves out, I don't think I can deal with anymore. :)

    Round cover? You mean for the 10b? If so, then yes, plans are there...It'll prolly be awhile though. I have to get all these little issues worked out with the 14b and D60 covers first.

    If you weren't refering to the 10b....I'm not sure what ya meant..:crazy::)

    Can you ship them to Sweden :crazy:
    UPS or something and if you can can you check how much it would cost.
    If the shipping works I would like one for my d60 and one for my 14bff

    PM sent.

    Gonna post up the shipping quotes I got to Stockholm, Sweden just incase any of the others guys in Europe might be curious on a ball park shipping cost-

    US Postal service - One 22 lb. package:
    Express Mail - 3 to 5 days, then go through customs $92.40. Automatically insured for $100. Trackable


    Insured Airmail - 4 to 10 days, then go through customs $80.85. Insured for $100. Not tracked.

    US Postal service - One 45 lb. package:
    Express Mail - 3 to 5 days, then go through customs $167.00. Automatically insured for $200. Trackable


    Insured Airmail - 4 to 10 days, then go through customs $150.85. Insured for $200. Not tracked.

    UPS- for 1 22lb package= $195.46

    Fed-Ex- for 1 22lb package= $190.69

    Assuming Stockholm, Sweden, postal code 11739

    The prices quoted on gf's buisness accounts with the USPS, UPS and Fed-Ex. She gets a discount because of the large amount of shipping she does internationally. Not cheap.:eek:

    :yikes: It might be cheaper to go for a visit and build them covers on site while there.

    I can usually get them done with just a gasket and a factory cover.....but I'll proll end up picking up an old housing for test fitting. Is a 10b front the same as a 10b rear as far as the covers go?
