I just got word from Advan, they have inspected the sunroof that Tim sent them and are ready if we are. Pricing is a little bit higher than their original estimate, won't be able to do it for less than $330-$350 + shipping. I will need 22 units sold in order for it go through. Advan has said that they can start production in January but before they start I need to make sure we can do it so I'll be putting up a group buy shortly. If enough people are in we'll get it done...if not then obviously we won't.
What's next? No idea, I think we're scraping the bottom of the barrel with MK2 parts these days. The numbers of people who own them are dwindling, as are the number of people who understand that making low volume parts is not cheap. I personally have nothing on the "to do list" for MK2's anytime soon, which is kind of sad but hopefully something will come up.
Yeah I can do 1/2 deposits...might be a few bux more as it's a lot more work for me to keep track of payments that way. Sunroof seals are not being made, I tried but they are just too complicated to make, I'd have to make 100 of them and initial quotes put them higher priced than the actual roof. I know this is a required piece for a lot of you guys but there is really nothing I can do about that, there is no way I'd sell 100 seals in the next 10 years. I still have dozens of hatch glass seals and they weren't that pricey to make so not really interested in holding thousands in stock for years again. For those that are hoarding seals this is your chance to make a few bux on them.
since Jim can't post a POLL I'm posting this on his behalf...he will be running this group buy. Any and all questions (with the exception of Canadian Shipping) will go through him and here is the text he gave me:
IMPORTANT: Pricing has not been confirmed for condensers. It all depends...
The rear glass seal found here is set to start very shortly so it's time to move onto the next project. When we sent out the hatch glass seal we also sent out a pair of window seals...for those that need visual queues here is what I'm talking about:
I'd like to see how much interest this is...
So as some of you are aware I'm no longer "stocking" Dobinsons; meaning I will not be purchasing them by the skidload as I did in the past. The interest is just not there to justify the expense, so what I will be doing as coming on here and posting up a "Group Buy" every 6 months. Group Buy is...
