RE: [DML] Polyurethane suspension parts.

Tom, Over here CNC Machine people are $150.00 / hr. Drawings, metal and I'm
doing a 6 cavity mold.

Why are those molds so expensive? They do not need to be made of solid gold!
I am in the process of making all the rubber bushings out of polyurethane. 
I'm having them made for my new frame.
If someone is interested I can have them make some more. No, there is no 
$600 mold needed. Actually, the mold costs just a few dollars. The problem 
is with the metal components of a bushing. In case of the control arm 
bushings it's easy... all that is needed is a metal sleeve. With the TAB 
bushing it will be a little more complicated. I'm also working on making new

motor and transmission mounts. Since polyurethane can be molded to any shape

and any hardness I believe this will be a great improvement. I just need the

metal parts fabricated first and then the poly bushing will be molded on
