Thanks!

That must be a good idea because me and someone else on the board both had that idea independently. It would be interesting to make the 'blinds' adjustable to vary the amount of air it lets though. Feasible to do but makes for a much more complex design with moving parts. First things first at this point for me. An aluminum replica of the OEM grill. Then we'll see.

Feel free to steal my idea.

Make it a little bigger and buyers of your product could possibly buy one for a badge or you could through one in for customers that buy a certain amount of product.
I like it. I would consider one on the truck when I get the grill.
Or send me one in badge size and will put it on my truck..... for advertising in trade for.....one of your products.

I still can't pronounce it, despite reading the phonetic spelling on wikipedia. But I love your products!

Will do. You guys will be the first to know. I have set a target for October shipping but it all comes down to finding the right fit for vendor who will do mass production. Once I have a vendor lined up that I can trust to do a good job and have reasonable pricing then it should move relatively quickly from there.




Well...ready to buy 3 of the 4 items you sell, right now... Great work!

I'm sure in the current environment a lot of people would put them on their grills

Really nice products! Can you attach the Land Rover emblem to the grill? I think the grill would look good in black for most trucks.

Not sure. I haven't tested that yet. I'm not a big fan of Land Rover as of late.

I'll make sure the Tiktaalik emblem attaches thought!

The grill will come in any color you want so as long as it is black.

Do you have a pic of the Tiktaalik logo?

Hi Doug.

Some photos here and here.

If you subscribe to the Headlight Guard Design thread I will make sure to post better ones when I have the final product.

The app is buggy.

I noticed that the 'TM' key turns into a 'y' in the app. So for all of you viewing this through the app the business name is Tiktaalik not Tiktaaliky.

Carl, you're playing dangerously close to the line on copyright infringement. You need to consult with your lawyer and get ahead of this.

Ha!

Actually my TM application is in progress and it looks like its going to go through successfully. Now if I was making mints it may had been a different story.
