RTAB tool rental?
Anybody have a RTAB tool that they would be willing to loan / rent out?

Kengineer 02-20-2013 09:21 AM

I will be making a tool to do mine this week and doing them this weekend or next. After that we could meet and it's yours as long as you pass it on when you are done. I live in Seattle but work in Woodinville.

What is your time frame?

SeattleAlpineM3 02-20-2013 09:32 AM

Don't have a time frame in mind, but would be super appreciative if that works out! Happy to drive up and get pointers if you wouldn't mind!

Nothing like having someone else waiting to motivate you. Not terrible for some scrap metal and my lunch break.

Wow! I'll also need to work on my RTABs soon. Can I use it after SeattleAlpineM3?

See my sig, I also have the preload tool available for rent.

Updates on this. The all thread rod I purchased at the hardware store was insufficient quality and kept stripping out the threads. I am purchasing high strength all-thread and nuts for this today.

I have one if this unit doesn't work out for you guys.

Kengineer 03-10-2013 06:59 PM

New update, I got the high strength all-thread but still need to do my passenger side. MY back has prevented this from happening this weekend but I'm on the mend. I think I will be done by Friday.


Kengineer 03-14-2013 11:27 AM

Done! Even with a tool those things suck, mine were totally seized on. :thumbdwn:

SeattleAlpine, you are first.

Ken - PM headed your way

Hi everybody. Is there an RTAB and/or FCAB tool available to borrow or rent. I have a wagon and m3 that need the operation at both ends of the cars ... I am in the Bellevue area and hope to find a tool nearby.
Thank you,

Kengineer 06-25-2016 01:15 AM

Hi Sean, I have a RTAB tool I made and am in Shoreline. Please Email me please KCrane289@hotmail.com
