FIXING STRIPS

Kenneth and few others are asking for the status of the project of making them.

Here is what I posted a few months ago:

Due to lack of response when I announced the possibility to make the Lateral Fixing Strip pair, that hold the Front Bulkhead Mat side edges, the production order was never authorized. Everything was ready at the metal fabrication shop, as I supplied detailed drawings and received a quotation, but I did not give the green light to proceed. I will try one more time:

IF there are at least 25 orders placed in the next two weeks, I will make 50 sets. They would be like the original ones, with a new look, perfect to show up your Low Light Werks mat set!

VW Part Number: 141 863 137 ( x 2 ) and screw N 11 461 1 ( x 8 )

Precision Sheet Metal Fabrication, made from an original part, powder-coated in original Beige color.

Before placing an order, please post in this forum your intention te get a set @ $47 (includes 2 strips).

Let see how this goes! A decision to have them available will be made in two weeks!

Luis


I will try one more time!

Please post your request here or send me a PM if you want a SET.
I will then post the number of requests and the options we have.

Thank you,

Luis

Hi Luis,

I received my Sound Absorber set.

Where do we stand on the fixing strips? Are we close? Can you post a pic of what they actually look like?

Thanks!


Perhaps if those interested were willing to pay more, Luis? Might that tip it?

I have a RHD Ghia so I can't benefit from Luis' efforts, but it would be remiss of me if I didn't recognise his special contribution to the Ghia community.

American enterprise, ingenuity and service, at their best.

Wow a marathon effort Luis, I don't think any of us fully appreciate how much effort went into making this happen. Congratulations and thank you very much. Smile

ONE SET LEFT!

As you know, it took a few months for having enough orders to make a Sound Absorber mats production going.
There is only one complete 6-pieces set available, this is the prototype I initially made. Please send me a PM if you want it. First come, first serve!

Luis
