PMed you, but posting here anyways in case you check this first. Thanks :D

edit: I'm reading that you need to use the torque plate with the same type of fasteners and headgasket you'll be using for your build (in my case, ARP studs and MHG). Is this true? I don't want to use a brand new MHG and chance it getting ruined at the shop or having the adhesive coming off.
Sorry, the torque plate is currently being rented.
I'll post on here when it is returned.

The plate is going to Fl this week; Miami area. He's planning on using it in two weeks. If he is willing to get shipping funds from U, we can ship it up to Jacksonville. Current security deposit is $355, deposited in my PayPal account: kdvanloo@live.com.
I'll keep U posted on the trans-Fl shipping deal.

Security Deposit is still $355 paid to my PayPal account before the plate is shipped. Security Deposit is refunded after the plate is returned in undamaged condition.

It's time to revive this thread... Yes, the torque plate is available for rent.
Rental policy for the 7M Tq Plate: Deposit $355, in addition to your choice of shipping and insurance on the torque plate, shipped through the US Postal Service (Tq plate is valued at $355).
When the Tq plate is returned to me, in an undamaged condition, you get the $355 deposit back. What it costs me to repair the plate, will come out of the deposit.
Shipping and insurance is not refundable.
Deposits are held at PayPal, in the following account: kdvanloo@live.com
Please ask the machine shop to use washers when torqueing down the plate. If the stud/bolt holes are deformed have them dress them up before sending out the plate to me or U will get charged out of the deposit.
Thanks

Van

Due to the wear on the plate over the past four years, the torque plate is no longer available. I apologize for any inconvenience with regard to UR build. Van
