Well that took a lot longer than I expected... but the High Strength Torsion Tools are finally complete. I tested them on a car in the shop and there's NO WAY these are going to bend, and the 'comfort handle' makes it super comfortable to use.

They're $35 each + $5 shipping in the ConUS.

You can PayPal HERE. Make SURE there is a valid shipping address on your payment, please... smiley_notworthy.gif

Checks can go to the shop, the address is HERE.

I pull on and off the front springs with a pair of leather work gloves. Keep it simple.

Rear trunk

I have a cheap $10 hand winch fixed to the back of my workshop to pull non running cars indoors. That can also work to stretch the spring over the hook on the front trunk but you have to be careful since now you are putting more pieces under tension so wear safety glasses. If you prop the hood all the way open, doing it by hand isn't that hard.

Got mine, going to have it cad plated too...Thanks !
McMark
I don't think it'l be an issue with this little tool, but just FYI when I talked with my plater about what the real story was with 'Hydrogen Embrittlement' my main take-away was that it's not a big deal, except on hardened metals. This tool is hardened.

I don't think our trunk torsion spring is even close to stressing the metal, so plating is seriously unlikely to cause a problem. But I would talk to someone knowledgeable at your CAD plating shop to be sure.
Luke M
I got mine today..Thanks again
DRPHIL914
recieved yesterday and will be using it this weekend thanks!!!
