So we have Rob's tread showing the prototype installed in his rig. I'm really quite happy how these turned out. We have quite a few folks that have stepped up to help support the cause and signed up on Rob's thread. Thought I should make it official and open a thread since someone has "let the cat out of the bag".

A little about the product and process
These are a self skinning rubber product that takes the texture off of the mold, so the tooling has the grain in it. This is how we make the dash tops. The big difference is that unlike the dash we were able to mold off of an original this one we had to scan and create a pattern that was cut into the tool. This is one of the reasons this tool has taken so long. There were quite a few problems we had to overcome, but we are ready to introduce the product now.

We are maybe 6 weeks out on the 1st parts shipping as we have materials inbound and it may take a bit to get it and schedule everything to move forward. Think Mid march and they will be shipping give or take a week.

The cost on these for the Group buy will be $128 until they start shipping, after and when in production they will be $148, The full retail will be $240 on these once the GB is done.

SO if you are interested sign up here !

I'm also putting together a "hardware kit" that will include new mounting screws that fit with a larger phillips head (making easier to remove later) and the new screw covers needed for $5.80 for those that need them (with the GB) no need to decide now.

From the other thread I have the following I will be notifying when ready. I do have some with question marks that I'm not sure if you are in but can send the info when ready.

So far I have the following that are interested

I apologize for the dusty interior (and exterior). I keep the car in a warehouse year round under a cover. Somehow, it still, make that STILL gets dusty between visits. I’m still in search of that perfect cover I guess!
My part in this is simply that I started doing concour events in addition to SCCA and other speed related events (my PCA region doesn’t Autocross). In the early days of 914Rubber, if you called them on the phone, you got Mark, you still sometimes do, but he has staff now. Mark started calling me when he’d fly in to Reno and we’d get together and go to dinner. On virtually every phone call and every in person contact, I’d ask about progress on the targa bar pad. Poor Mark. I must have been such a pain in the ass. I can’t believe the trouble he’s gone through to get this done and get it right. He deserves every bit of our loyalty.
He is selling this too cheap. I strongly suggest you get your name on this list before his wife finds out. evilgrin.gif
P.S. I just started bugging him about the knee pad. You should have heard him groan! av-943.gif

Possibly,
We have identified a few other pieces that we may do first.
