Tell me what new custom parts you need!

Hey guys,
I have made a few custom parts here and there for you guys, and both my aluminum and Delrin steering rack bushings were pretty popular, but I need some more ideas.

The rack bushings filled their niche market pretty quickly, so I have been pretty bored lately, with nothing to do (other than my 7am-4pm machinist job), and I wanna get back to making custom parts for these cars. Also, I wanna know what the new Focus and Focus/Fiesta ST guys need!

There are lots of ideas I have, but I need to know what everyone else thinks about it, and more importantly, who is actually willing to follow through with their interest.

A few ideas are:
Delrin control arm bushings
Delrin rear suspension bushing kit
Delrin shock spacers for rear
Billet battery tray
Billet thermostat housing.
Rally bar/light bar
Various billet brackets
Block off plates
Shifter base risers and solid bushings
Billet shifter knobs
Pedal riser plate
The list goes on and on...

Let me know what you guys think, and actually want!

If I come off as a little rude, I apologize, I just had a bad experience with my bolt pattern conversions. I had 15+ people tell me they wanted me to do it, and ask where to pay, plus tons more say they were interested. In the end, I spent a good amount of money on tooling, and only one person actually paid. Lesson learned lol.

Hope I can use my skills to better the focus crowd.

rear 4 point brace for use with massive's sway bar which mounts differently and I don't think any rear 4 point brace will mount up! I mean there aren't many choices out there for the 4 point brace if and when you can find one! I already have the front one.

Billet hubs would have to be CNC work, and broaching for the axle splines. They would probably be $400-$600 a set. I knew some guys that had a batch of billet hubs made for some dodge neon race cars, and they were $500 a pair.

I already make those. $25 a set. The 05 ST uses this shifter right?

Like the "ultra performance" ones that they sell in Europe?

That looks great. For sure use toe-links w/ that lower stress brace.

Is that area really under that much stress? I understand the brace at the top of where the struts/shocks mount, but to me, I would think that subframe would be pretty rigid.
