We apologize for the epic delay on this group buy. The plates took longer than expected to get made. Once they were made, we inspected them, and the quality of the anodizing was poor. We sent them back for rework. I am currently waiting on the new plates. I will update here and in the Discord as frequently as I get updates on the status. Every other part of this GB is on hand and ready to ship. The kits are ready to go, as soon as the plates arrive they go out the door.
