UPDATE!! OFFICIAL G/B: Clear Timing Belt Covers - Order Paid;....


Hey there guys,

Well I've been approached by someone to have this done (and I've wanted one too), and figured I'd do something about it! To streamline a bit, I have approached a Plastics Fabrication company in order to create us some clear plastic cambelt covers; so far, I have received the following sample:







The final picture depicts what the likely available "Blue" and "Smoked" colours will look like. There are some final improvements that may need to be carried out for the final design, but this cover is essentially representative of the end product. I will still need to confirm the availability of an inscription being written on the raised plaque of the cover.

Anyway, no more Stalin (HAH!) we are looking at a price (undelivered) of £50.93/$81.15 (inc. Paypal fee) which isn't so bad really, its only an increase of £17/$28 from the originally predicted price.

I know a lot of people were price dependant for this, but I urge people to please stick to this - I know in these times there are more important things to spend on, but we are now on the home-stretch! Once we get the numbers, these are ready to be made!!!

So there we are, what next;
- The first, prototype mold will be made - this will go through several iterations until the final design is reached
- This final design will be sent to me to evaluate
- Once I'm happy, the final mold will be made, and the full run of covers will be made!

The only details in limbo really is delivery - as I said, it'll be FAR FAR cheaper for me to post all American covers to one address (I got a rough quote of $160 for 20 covers, so that's just $8 per cover), and have those distributed from there. Other than that, that's the update! So please, lets make this happen!!

NOTE: Unfortunately we got confirmation that the lower covers probably won't happen...apparently due to the shape and the nature of the lower cover being proximity of the crankshaft pulley and whatnot, it'd need to be injection molded...and...well...the price was pretty "wild" for that tooling!!! So, what I'll do, is get the lower ones back...and ask another company about them and see if those can be vacuum formed in any way! Again, if anyone wants to volunteer to post these covers within America please contact me as it'll be MUCH cheaper in the end (I got a rough quote of $160 for 20 covers, so that's just $8 per cover).



- Payment Details -

With our current run, the deposit price will now be of: £18.50/$29.50 – this amount, once collected from everyone will pay for the tooling, after which the prototypes will be made. I want to set a deadline of End of February for the collection of these deposits; once they are collected, and the prototype has been signed off, I will then require the remaining amount within two weeks – a firm date will be established once we are closer to having the full amount of deposits.

Payment is to be made to the following Paypal address: cynos.riko7@googlemail.com. I will also accept cheques, cashier’s cheques and Bankers Drafts. When making payment PLEASE follow the following format:

Subject line of Payment: Payment for Cambelt Cover G/B
In the main body of text:
- Full Name
- Forum username
- Colour required; with code
- Full address (or just make sure it’s included in the Paypal payment form)

If you wish to make the full payment, or a greater payment than the deposit amount, then feel free and it will be deduced from the total. Please make sure that you are going to be committed to the Groupbuy, whilst I can issue refunds, I am hoping I won’t have to for any dropouts as it’ll affect the final price and be a hassle for everyone. As it stands now, exclusive of postage and packing, these cambelt covers will cost £50.93/$81.15 (inc. Paypal fee).
[color="#8B0000"]
Note: The less popular colours may have to be exempt and choose from one of the more popular colours as they will need to be ordered in.[/color]
