Unfortunately, I haven't had enough people sign up to begin production. I've had to refocus on other products for the time being.

Very interested in this as I just bought a non locker Syncro Doka over in Europe and at the very least will be adding a decoupler and probably both lockers so will need the console and finding a syncro console looks to be almost impossible. But do I need the mounting plate for it too?

Thanks! This is a one-man show, so I'm doing what I can when I can!

I believe you'd need a mounting plate for it too. I tried reaching out to people about borrowing, or even buying one - but no luck. I'd like to have that part reverse-engineered eventually.

Great! I've sent out emails to those on the waitlist in order to start collecting deposits, since I can't afford to front all of the costs myself. Hopefully we can get them out there soon!

I just bought a burned syncro for my 2wd to syncro conversion

It has no plastic cover. Maybe when it arrives, I can send you the bracket to copy for a cover?

Iíll have the Syncro late December, wont be ready to reassemble for about a year if thatís enough time?

Let me know!

That might work out great! That's the one item I haven't been able to source.

Bump.

Did you ever make these units? If not, will you supply the CAD/CAM files (willing to pay for a single use - I recognize the time you invested).

Well I'd like to see your plans. I found a very nicely done console CAD file but the metal reinforcing bracket is the missing piece. I've been plugging away on a cardboard mockup but still trying to understand how best to fab it - flat sheet metal, pound out the edges with a hammer, you know "it's in the details!"

Definitely interested in this for my knobless syncro that will eventually have knobs if all goes as planned! Hope this can be a reality soon!

It's really only a bezel. You need the metal frame that actually houses the switches. Rather than waiting on someone to 3d print one, someone could pull a mold off of an existing one in fiberglass and could then lay up replacement fiberglass bezels.

The problem like many neat things I see here, is the demand is just not there for the effort. If you charged for your time, they'd quickly be too expensive.

I'm in for one! Would be willing to pay in advance if that helps it along.
