Regards : NEW FENDERS
Well guys I have some exciting news and am honored to be the delivery man. Actually if this doesn't work out I could be asshole #1......lol.
Had a great lengthy exchange tonight with Dave Roberts. Many may not know but Dave@ILR was the last person as far as we know to have oem quality new plastics made. The west coast guys may be able to elaborate more on that. Well with the current state of affairs (availability, price and interest) Dave will be taking steps to go ahead with another run, which ultimately would start with test pieces. There is a lot of things that are required to happen, it's not cut and dry process per say. However wheels will be put in motion here now. In a nut shell, Dave will be looking into the mold situation, are the original molds that were used before still available? if not there are still options. sounds like 2 countries have expressed interest in doing the work. Way to much information to post. bottom line is we need to know who's serious. honestly I'm 35 years old and I missed the last go of this so you can bet your ass I'm loading up for life. He figures he will have to come up with the $10k to get the manufacturer willing to work. before he said they would do the work without much cash down and would usually make a couple test sets to dial them into spec, not they want the money and will keep building them until desired spec is met. he mentioned the green isn't exactly a perfect color match to oem. so you guys can do the math, $10k is needed, I imagine dave will put out a little himself, just a guess, but outside investment is required (US the enthusiasts ). exact cost per set is not yet known as that will be his goal this week to get that nailed down.
so very exciting news guys. I have always put lines in the water and tonight we were given a reason for optimism. with daves permission he permitted me to release the great news.
once he gets the info we needs I'm hoping that includes approximate cost per set.
who wants fenders and who is ready to put the money out?
