Before everyone bum rushes me with orders for those tabs, let me make sure they're gonna work first..
Now we are all pulling for Truck633 to get back to the Land of Enchantment as soon as possible

Eventually. The process of getting there is very similar to the five stages of grief... Denial , Anger , Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance

As Promised I took my brackets off last night and made a detailed (traced) diagram to assist in thoes who want to make these themselfs. this is the "best" of the 2 sides I made.

Sorry im not a CAD guy and my artwork is not "ideal" but should be good enough

Okay.. I took that PDF and did a few sets really quick. I did make a couple small tweaks (to help in ease of production).

Instead of doing a 30deg and 35deg angle, I just bent both ends at about 32-33 deg. The difference is so small that I think it will still work. That allowed me to just set the stroke control on my brake to do both ends the same.

I also just bent both ends at 1.25" from the end... and I rounded the end off by the 5/8" hole.

Took 2 minutes of drawing.. 5 minutes on the plasma table.. and about 30 seconds to bend them (5 at a time).

If these work okay.. I'll cut/bend a few dozen and start including them with the caliper brackets on future orders.

Eddie, those look awesome, I'm sure they'd work great. The 5/8" drill bit alone cost me more than the extra $10 for them. Nice work

I'm just glad some people will actually have parking brakes now. I'm tired of hearing the lies of line lock etc. The new brackets look great. I agree the slight production mods will work without issue. I have to admit it took me more than 2 minutes to do the pencil drawing but I wanted it to be complete.

These are great. How much for just the brackets shipped. I purchased the caliper bracket from you a while back but have not had a hance to install them. Which is good, reading that I will need to relocate the holes for a Maxima.

The shipping is gonna suck for just those small tabs.. Even the Flat Rate Envelopes are about $5.

It would probably have to be $10 shipped for a couple small tabs like that.. figuring $5 for the pair of tabs.. and $5 for shipping.

Once I start shipping these with the actual caliper brackets, it won't be as bad.. figuring $30 shipped for the Caliper Brackets and the Tabs.

But yeah.. if anybody wants a pair of these tabs at $10 shipped.. hit me up via PM.
