Thanks for the props, I still have a couple decent working moulds, but materials are limited.NEED WHISKERS
Mr. Whisker (celicasupra) has stopped making them. As of ever thread I've found. Anybody know where I can get some more for a reasonable price? I liked his because they were well made.
If anyone could carry the torch, I would recommend Bob. I've bought lots of parts off him over the years and he's never disappointed. Injection moulding is costlier, but yields superior results.I've just talked to a manufacturer who can make exact replicas of the whiskers, including part numbers like originals. Minimum quantity is 100 pairs (made in a siamese mold that would produce a pair at a time. They would be made out of a material with the same hardness/flexibility as the originals (TPU plastic) but with superior durability and resistance to UV. Price would be less than $100/pair but that might scare away enough people to make it impossible to justify the tooling cost. I've checked out this guy's operation and he certainly has the competence to do the job right. Please let me know if you have any interest in this and/or if they are available from Toyota (in original inferior TPU material) and what Toyota's price is.
What I'm talking about is injection molding, perfect repros. I would need to give the molder a firm order for 100 pairs in order to proceed. I don't want to inventory a bunch. I personally don't need any ( I have a spare set) but because of my background in industrial design I was introduced to a manufacture today who specializes in this sort of work and does top quality stuff. Delivery would be approx. 2 months from making the commitment. Are there enough owners who want these? We'll see I guess.Thanks for the props, I still have a couple decent working moulds, but materials are limited.
Garage is a sorry sight, far from last fall when I :iocrunks2:
Spilled milk...if possible, I'll try to pull a few sets, but prob won't be perfect.
