Mittler Bros Accu-lign hub stands and SmartStrings coming for sale soon

I am finishing up putting my Boxster back to stock over Christmas, and then I am going to be selling my Accu-lign hub stands and my smart strings. Pics to come...

Mittler Bros Accu-lign:
https://www.mittlerbros.com/acculign-alignment-system.html

They come with 3 bolt patterns, mine has Porsche, Honda (from S2000 size) and a BMW size. They have been used on my Boxster and an S2000 by the previous owner but I don't know if the previous seller ever used them on a BMW or not

I will also include 4 spacers that are needed so that the hub stand can clear the calipers, I think it is 7mm in back and 20'ish mm in front, I can confirm when I take the stands off. I have studs and am keeping them, so these spacers won't include any longer bolts. These are eBay spacers and while they look good, I have never driven on them so I have no feedback on how they would drive.

Price: $550 + PP fees and shipping

Smartstrings:

One of the plastic turn knobs has broken a piece off, it is one of these, can't remember which though. It is still functional.

I will get to my storage and verify which one.

Price $275 + PP Fees and shipping

I will get actual pictures as soon as I get the chance and estimated ship out date will be shortly after Christmas (still have to finish aligning the Boxster) although if someone really wants this for Christmas I can accelerate my schedule. Inf act if I say I have to finish the work so I can sell the parts that might help me to clear my schedule

Even if someone buys them both, they will ship in two boxes, if the same person buys both I'll cover the shipping on whichever one turns out to cost more. They are both kind of heavy, but I usually can get a good rate on shipping which I'll pass along so it won't be too much.

I have used these 3 times to do alignments. First time was so-so since I didn't accurately shim the stands to be level. Car felt fine but since I was going to Daytona I got an alignment check and they did some tweaks. 2nd time was great (installed PSS9) and drove several HPDE events with great success. 3rd time will be this current alignment (going back to stock). Key is getting it all level, and while the first time I used their water level method, I had air bubbles, so what worked for me was a long 6 foot bubble level to use when shimming my 12x12 plates. I got 4 steel 12x12 thin plates from eBay and a bunch of 12x12 vinyl tiles from Lowes to do the shims. I'm keeping them for other projects but I can share where I got them from.

For the Cayman, since it already has suspension, control arms, etc, I won't be doing any alignments anytime soon, and if I do it will be only once every great while, so I can drive to Jax to get an alignment on the rare chance that I need one.

Hit me with any questions - will split up but prefer to sell together (and unless you already have one or the other you kind of need both)

Thanks

Steve
