95 RRC Front speaker cover demand?

How many folks would be interested in a durable alternative to the shitty brittle front speaker covers for their 95 RRCs?.

Seems they are the first thing snapped up (except maybe seat ecu) when someone parts out a 95. Was asking Lav about maybe making some but thought it would help to gauge the interest level. What would you pay for a pair made out of something better?

Mine are both in perfect shape but that can always change. I'd be interested for back ups depending on cost.

thats because you are retired and wear flip flops everyday .. first time you go to get out of that thing with real shoes on you will need a new driver side panel.

Count me in! A CNC milled alum would be awesome! No fears of brittle plastic tabs...

Does anyone have some pictures they can post of the grills removed so you can see tabs/etc ? My old ones are buried somewhere.

95 RRC Front speaker cover demand?

I just bought a replacement, though it has many broken tabs. I have to plasti-weld some styrene to repair. I'll try to post a pic today.

I occasionally get requests at work, and I do know people that would like them.

Yeah I'd probably take a set. Mine are in alright shape, but a couple tabs are snapped off.

I'd be in. 3 sets.

I have 5/6 in perfect shape, but I'd prefer to keep them that way (in a drawer) and use something more durable.

I am interested. I would think some would pay more, but I would think if they were $50 - $75 each side, most people with a '95 would be interested.

I would buy. $200 for a matching pair seems like a reasonable amount. I was about to start trying to rebuild my existing ones, along with my seat bottom trim parts.
