Yea, not cool. Especially if you sent him $$ for a part. Has he ever ripped any one off ? I havnt heard of any one complaining. I hope not. I would like to get some suspension parts from him. Does Dom ever get on here or FJ ?

To all the above posts:

I really like Dominic and the parts he makes. Absolute excellent fittment and quality that can rarely be matched.

The reason I'm having topspeed do the last of my parts instead is because I've been trying for months to put this together with Dom and I'd like to at least have everything completely assembled by the end of august so I can tune the car and enjoy it a bit before winter sets.

Now, Dom hasn't ripped me or anyone off that I know. I will gladly do business with him at any point in the future. I just need this stuff done and can't wait around another 4 months to get it complete.

That being said, it's been over a month since he has replied to my last message. I know he is a busy guy like most people know, and that's solely the reason I kept waiting so long for things to get done.

I still have the intention of getting his front and rear lower control arms, rear toe arms and front endlinks this year, as well as his camber arms most likely.

So I took off the AC pump, the front AC radiator/condenser was already off, I took off some lines and the fender to get to them. Does the canister thing disconnect from the aluminum line halfway through at the connection with the pin, or is the line meeting at that junction like pressed in? I'm gonna remove the bigger line there I think at the location at the firewall by the IM where it connects to the lines going in the cabin.

- Connected and wrapped the dump tube today.
- Figured out I need a new oil feed line made- it interferes with the DP's lower O2 bung cuz it's too tight of a bend.
- Made new lines properly sized for the power steering feed lines to the rack and the pump.
- Took off the push-in feed fitting for the ps pump - now to get the -6an bung welded to it somewhere.
- Put on stock coil pack and some other misc stuff.

Big stuff on Tuesday, I hope. Like the brakes and caliper assembly (if anyone has pics of the SVT rear caliper assembly/dis-assembly, send me!)
Gonna try and do the vac lines then as well, fuel rail, misc wiring, boost gauge, etc. I'm gonna get up super early and finish this crap by like 6pm I hope.

That might help with the pics of the rear calipers.

Are there no write-ups on complete assembly/dis-assembly of the rear SVT calipers? I just hope when I reassemble them I don't put something on backwards. lol
