Interest in D&D oil filter swivel adapter?

As many are no doubt aware, D&D stopped offering their swivel mount oil filter adapter due to the discontinuation of a part they used to fabricate it (GM part 14056405). After a year of searching, I finally got my hands on one. I am in contact with Mark LeGrou re the possibility and cost of fabricating a single unit. However, the timing isn't great. After a year of very slowly rebuilding my engine, I finally put the oil pump a couple weeks ago and am about to mate the tranny and throw it all back in the car. At this point, I'm not sure I want to bother swapping the pump & filter setup; I may just continue with my remote filter. Is anyone interested in taking over the acquisition of this swivel mount?

For those who don't know it was used stock by GM on the 4.1 Cadillac(Buick) V6. A lot of guys get by with the Metric cover and short filter from 84-87 3.8 FWD V6. Someone will want it. Put it for sale in the Classified section.
