sounds like the guy that left was the man behind all the lifts and designed the radius arms. i guess his new company will have just as good, if not better, components for the EB's and 70's full sizes.

If anyone is interested I've got a new set of Cage arms that were only used for mock up before I bought them (some paint nicks) w/instruction sheet and hardware that I will sell for $725.
