I just wish it was black plastic bumpers. Quick and cheap. Just like the fiberglass versions, but less expensive. They would sell like hotcakes.

I KNOW!!!

A time machine so I can go back to 1974 and buy that silver 914-6 with option code 471 I test drove at Triangle Porsche / Audi in Durham, NC

And if I can have a two-fer, go back to 1979 and NOT sell my 1966 911 that I drove for 7 years. (Bought it for $3000, sold it for $4000 and could not believe how lucky I was, LOL nobody drives a car for 7 years and sells it at a 30% premium).

You don't think this has market potential? Duh, we've seen fiberglass and carbon for decades now. But there are people who want bumpers that are lightweight and less expensive than fiberglass. Vacuum mold (or what Mark knows what to do right) is a POP verses a layup. Bang, out the door to a huge market.

Porsche has these (repops) in stock. I bought some from Sierra Madre. Passenger side fit well, drivers side fit terrible. I tried a couple before I gave up and got a refund. The drivers side all have an incorrect curve. It causes the ends (the ones that usually have a screw hole) to sit at an angle instead of a straight line that runs from the mesh engine grill caps.

I’m voting backpad...already foamed and covered. But I’d take the roll bar trim!!!

Vacuum mold (or what Mark knows what to do right) is a POP verses a layup. Bang, out the door to a huge market.

Actually looked at these.
The preliminary plan was to use Kevlar, it is actually more resilient than carbon fiber, but we do have the capability to do carbon fiber.

Will officially announce this weekend but love the guesses, some of them are stuff we have in the works. I'd bet no one would see this one coming.

So if we're playing 100 questions... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Would it be something that could go on My car? (This would really narrow it down...)

I agree with the ignition switch though... There is a real lack for aftermarket that works on that.

No, the tooling is complete now. The only problem we have is the buffiing. each top takes about 8 hrs of cleaning and buffing. Going into the holidays not the direction we can go. Expect movement on these in January. Unfortunately the costs will be going up a little, but then next gen ones are more dialed in.
