No worries. Thanks for holding on to that for me. I was actually in San Diego recently for some training (~17 Nov-19 Dec). I tried to call you the weekend of the Force show, but I must have the wrong number saved. Otherwise, I was busy with the family...and getting a tattoo. I'm not due to transfer until Oct '13, so please keep that piece stashed away for me.

If you could make a "MavSpeed" for a Maggie'd '04, I'd be the first in line. Be quite a small consumer base though considering all the variables you'd have to take into consideration.

I'm just pointing out something. Didn't meant to cause a ruckus.

i totally understand everyone wants something for "their" car who doesn't but again it doesn't mean you still can't cut this. also you can put a 05/06 cover on a 04 if you really wanted to. the only people whom cause ruckus are people who aren't interested in the part anyhow. you have a valid point. they have nothing else better to do.

will hold up fine. this is an Autoclaved part it is cured in temperature of 250 degrees+ if this was a layover you would have problem 100%. the heat under the engine compartment between the two materials would expand at different rates and would issues for sure. again i had many prototypes on this part and really have narrowed down what works best for this.

hard to say i would have to still buy boxes for these first to get full weight but i would think NOT cheap. though very light the size is what will cost a lot.

glad you thought about that.

i find alot of plastic parts under hoods of cars that really warp over time from the heat.

I have one left in stock. Someone else was just asking about it so whomever wants it. I also have one Blem where the radiator cap part indentation whe the resin didn't sit all the way in and that area is textured looking. I will make more but not until next year I have other parts I need to get done first.
