That would make it much quicker/easier to get an even parting line.
Should also lower the price.

If you have to make any changes, ask what color(s) it should be painted.
I started reading this from the newest post backwards, I even did a search to jog my memory on that way of casting a part, I came to the same site, just a different page
http://www.foundry.ray-vin.com/match...matchplate.htm

With a match plate you could cast them several at a time and save even more $$

I have a friend who owns a foundry here in Cinci, they have offered to let me use their place if I ever need to do any larger castings than I can do in my garage

Cool place to hang out during the winter months
