Bump for a great guy and an awesome product.

I saw the prototype today in person. Cluster looks really good. Shipping really damaged the top half pretty bad, but it still looked really clean. I hope they can put fragile on the box the next time they ship it or maybe pack it with peanuts and what not for the next prototype. Can't wait to see the finished product with the OEM finish in my car. Awesome Job!

Looks good, but why is the video taken in the dark? Any chance we could see how the side gauges look in the light or with gauges in them now that the position was changed? I think the visibility of the stock cluster is acceptable, IMHO. Great work... Have you seen how the finished product's finish compares to the stock dash? any side-by-side comparison pics you could provide? Congrats on the new proto!!!

video was of the 1st prototype.

only side by side comparison is a computer model you can see the difference between 1st and 2nd prototype.

2nd prototype will be completed on this Friday, and was started this afternoon. 9/14

hey guys look like there are a lot of questions that need to be answered. I am going to try my best to answer everyones questions. if i missed one let me know so i can answer it.

Starting with the texture of the mold.
Texture will not change the thickness of the mold. it will be applied after the mold is complete with the following steps.

A special film will be placed on the inner part of the mold (surface that will need texture) and then acid will be poured onto the film. The film has the exact texture that the oem cluster has. This will insure that every mold will have the exact texture pattern.

Next question.

Gauge pod size
Each gauge pod will have the same diameter and specs as everyone else. nothing will change. its a mold.. and a high grade mold in that. each piece will not change shape or size or anything.

Material
Material has not been chosen yet because they haven't received my oem piece to analyze it to match it.
I will be using same plastic material or better as OEM. with UV protection. (like sunblock)

Guys this will take time. When the mold is complete i will be flying to see the mold and check out the first test samples to verify texture and the pieces and quality so to give the company the go ahead to start production.

if i missed anyones questions please ask again.
