INITIAL REVIEW :
first off, fancy baggie packaging, lol not doing a unboxing, that's silly.
tolerances are very very tight, machining is professional, I got the OI set, in which AIC pointed out the interior was less than perfect. not noticeable unless looking for it.
they don't seem to fit at first, but a little pressure, and they slide on like they were designed to go there.
I only did the clutch, because that's all the time I had.
I slide one bushing on, then the pedal, then the 2nd bushing, it was tight, and I used a wooden headed hammer to press it in. (cherry wood hammer) only took 1-2 taps to get it going. proceeded to place washer and nut on, tightened to "HOLY [crud]" with 3/8 ratchet.
expected some stickiness with the first movement of the clutch. there was none.
it just pivoted on the bushings. I am at a loss for words, someone will be able to tell me, it was smooth, and not sloppy, my plastic bushings were "new" and that felt soooooo sloppy compaired to now.
I dare to say, it's better then some ball bearing movements I've come across.
this is on my short list of "if you like to drive, you NEEEEEEED this"

Ohh and another idea, perhaps some sort of billet aluminium horn button for aftermarket steering wheels.
Maybe something like the NSX-R button but just untouched billet aluminium or maybe even titanium for extra cool points. Or perhaps substituting the raised "H" and having raised CRX lettering? Just spitballing here

we have cnc and manual, but untill i have my own software, complex cnc code is a no go.

There was a post from not too long ago (a month or so) of a guy who is 3d printing rail end stops for the sunroof. Aluminium would be cool, but the plastic this guy is printing with would be much cheaper and probably all you'll need.
And Drache: yes something like the momo small horn buttons would be cool.i wonder if there'd be some degree of interchangability where you potentially use a mix of old hardware with the new machined horn to make it work without making the machining requirement overly complex.
