Got these today! Thanks Luis! I need to store this for a few months. Should I wash off the release agent first or leave it as is?

Hi Bnam,

You should use the 60's mats forum:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=...;start=100

You can clean the release agent very easy with a clean cloth

Cool progress Luis.

Mine is in the pending list. I am crossing fingers :)

LookVW Wed Dec 18, 2019 9:49 pm

Hi Luis, Could you give Us an Update?

Thanks Juan

Up-Date

From last post the following orders were fabricated:

R933231932B Fabricated/Curing
R812514350 Fabricated/Curing
R485509800-7 Fabricated/Curing
R108210198 Fabricated/Curing

I slowed down due to the cold weather in New Hampshire, in days bellow freezing temperatures it is not possible to spray the rubber material.

The good news is that today I paid for the second half of the material and now I have enough material to finish all pending orders PLUS 20+ NEW orders!

As I mentioned before, the material supplier made a minimum material batch that was greater than what I needed. The positive of this is that there is material for the new orders.

As I had to use more resources for materials than I originally planned for, I am short in resources to ship all fabricated orders. The new orders will help this situation. All of you that want to have a set of Low Light mats, please do it now, as I will only be able to make so many sets. After this batch of material is over, it would be almost impossible to make a new batch.

I just got a small lot of key fobs and cardholders!









The Key Fobs are identical to the first ones. Cardholders are slightly wider than the first set I got.

I only have 25 pieces of each. I will sell them only in this forum, the price will be $25 each plus shipping. I will use these funds to ship all fabricated orders ASAP!

Please send me an email to [email protected] including your name, address and your email, and I will send a PayPal request to you. First come, first serve!



Thank you,

Luis

I just got an email from FedEx! Mine will be here next Friday!

Thanks, Luis!

Merry Christmas!

lajs57 Fri Dec 20, 2019 6:17 pm

Six more orders fulfilled today!




Have All a great weekend!

Luis

LookVW Fri Dec 20, 2019 10:18 pm

Thanks Luis for the update,.. My order is in the next production batch, I hope 🤞 so.

You to have a Great Weekend 👍

djway3474 Fri Dec 20, 2019 11:36 pm

When I did the sun visors I worked with a guy that made huge running board mats for Jay Leno.
I believe he sourced the material from BJB Enterprises in So Cal. bjbenterprises.com
If you need more supplies there should be other sources.
I admire you persistence, great job.

It couldn't be at a better time! Keep rolling Carnal!!!

Having a Great Weekend, as Everyone should!!!
Thanks, Luis!

I got a few Key Fob orders, Thank you!

To make sure that the VW key stays inside the Key Fob, use the small silver ring to insert the key(s), before storing, rotate large gold ring 180 degrees, and accommodate key, then pull the ribbon all the way and snap it.






Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All Karmann Ghia lovers!

SIX MORE SETS BOXED AND READY TO SHIP!




Up-Date

From last post the following orders were fabricated:

R025500439 Fabricated/Curing
R503720918 Fabricated/Curing
R650311581 Fabricated/Curing
R914664851 Fabricated/Curing

I made as many as possible as weather and Christmas let me!
The weather forecast for tomorrow is bellow zero centigrades, but the rest of the week looks good!

Less than 10 more sets to go!

Material for NEW ORDERS arrived!!



Place your order NOW as I will only take enough orders for the material on hand. Delivery times will be 2-3 weeks.



As I mentioned before, the material supplier made a minimum material batch that was greater than what I needed. The positive of this is that there is material for the new orders.

All of you that want to have a set of Low Light Werks mats, please do it now, as I will only be able to make so many sets. After this batch of material is over, it would be very hard, almost impossible, to make a new batch.


There are still a few KARMANN Key Fobs and Card Holders available. I am sort in shipping funds, please help by buying one!




For now, I will sell them only in this forum, the price will be $25 each plus shipping. I will use these funds to ship all fabricated orders ASAP!

Sound Deadening Undermats

cln60ragfk wrote: When will the sound deadening or under the mat sets be available again

As you all know, I need a minimum order of 15 sets for the water jet shop to do a batch.

I have received various requests so far.

Everyone that have not placed an order jet for the sound deadening mats, please post your desire to see where we are.

Thank you!

Luis

Trylon Mon Dec 30, 2019 5:46 pm

Interested in sound dreading mats, Luis! But I have contacted before about this.
