FYI
I just called these guys
Badsunbird apparently has the 1st one they built. And his is a torque arm style.
The Are in R&D mode still.
Maybe this year?

I ordered Bolt in 9" for my early Vega from Autoweld Chassis.
Ordered in beginning of November. They still havnt started on it. :(
was told 5 or 6 weeks. Obviously I'm kinda aggravated at this point.
been almost 11 weeks.

I honestly didn't even ask because I wasn't interested in the torq arm set up. He told me that they aren't really offering it up as retail deal just yet. Kinda waiting on some feedback from badsunbird I think.
He talked like they may do the 4 link set up later.
we'll see.

Yes, I did receive the first one built, I commissioned them back in February of 2015 to build this rearend, it took them 10 months to build the jig and produce it. I supplied them with a core out of one of my parts cars and the V8 tourqe arm from my Sunbird. They did a fonominal job building it and modifying the tourqe arm to fit the Ford 9" housing. I sent them pictures of the install and they were greatly appreciative of that.

Brydon then told me that it was alright to release this information to all of you for purchase. Now he is telling some of you that they are still in the "R&D" phase of this? That doesn't make me very happy at all!!!

I apologize to all of you for this, This upsets me! I thought that I had accomplished something for all of us!

If anyone would like pictures of my set up, please pm me with your email address and I would be more than happy to send you pictures since I'm not able to post them here!

Just an FYI, it only took my 13 year old son and I 35 minutes to bolt this rearend into the car!

no biggie.
They probably just want to see how well it holds up after some miles, then get some feedback. Before they commit to putting their name on it.
I don't have a clue what you paid for the set up, but I bet they feel like they lost their ass on it and may not want to fool with it.
Some companies are all about the dollar sign, and some not so much. We will see where these guys come in at...eh.

Like I said earlier. Been waiting 11wks for mine and they already have all the R&D done, with a jig sitting there and havnt taken the time to knock my job out because they have a shop full of big money jobs sitting there

Funny Thing.
I got a call from Autoweld Chassis today.
Telling me they are close to getting to my housing and are going to try to make upper brackets a little taller with a couple sets of holes to help tune out the launch/wheel hop problem these cars experience.
This would be awesome. I asked originally and they acted like they didn't want to fool with it.
Its kinda like they heard I was aggravated with the long delay on this.????
I'm confident it will be nice, just hard to wait this long on stuff.

I sent him my 71 stock rear, to make me a bolt in 9 inch for my car.
He told me a couple of weeks, that was 2 months ago. Called a couple of times and left messages, no one called me back.
So I bought a back half from Checkered racing, maybe it wasn't meant to be.
Glad I went with the back half.

Tom
The main reason I went with Autoweld is that, They were the only ones I could find that had a jig already set up to do these.
I didn't want to cut my stock rear end up just for brackets
I don't know why you would have had to send them your rear end?
I could have done all this, but count your time and aggravation , this is prob the best money I spent so far.

I was just happy to see someone actually building a bolt in 9 inch for an early Vega.
It took me 4 years to find a Don Hardy Vega 12 bolt for sale.
