RE: [DML] Re: DeLorean Shocks

Marty, I looked at your collars again on the web site and the difference is
see is yours are turned aluminum and designed the way you want them to hold
the cup in the position you want. My collars are steel and as I said will be
modified to hold the cups where I want. They are totally 2 different designs
and yours are aluminum and mine are going to be plated steel which won't
give in my estimation over the years. I didn't copy yours at all.  
I'm not saying I'm an expert on shocks, but I do read the difference in
shocks which you also must know the difference in Bilstein 360 PSI stiff
valve aeration and Monroe 100 to 150 PSI weaker valuing aeration. Twin tube,
single tube all different variations to produce the ride the customer wants.
I never said my shocks are the touring shocks nor do I know your definition
of Touring. I stated my shock in an earlier Email or on the web site and
said nothing about touring.
If you were expecting to be copied, I wonder why this hasn't come up earlier
with other companies and why were talking about it now. 
Rob had his design then Houston came out with theirs and it looks like they
are using a collar and I don't remember anybody saying anything about that.

    I agree "black paint is black paint" but 10 years of testing and over
Delorean shock kits have shown me that "collars" are not necessarily always 
"collars," no matter where you buy them. And having a tax number and buying 
from industrial locations is one of those "been there, done that" things
never produced a collar that I found acceptable to use for one of my shock
And I don't quite understand the economics of buying some sort of industrial

collar and then spending the time and money to "modify" it to the way you
it, but I'm sure you've worked thru the cost.
