Working on it.
Chris from SD and I spent a god part of the morning going over the final details, so it is moving forward, but no current ETA other than asap.
We are out of bumpers now as well, so we need them soon.

Prices can't be set until all the costs are in (meaning when production bumpers finally land at our loading dock).
We hope to keep prices in line with what they were from SG and not increase it. Hopefully.

I had ideas on blade bumpers and such as well, but after watching that SG style bade bumper sit unsold in the for sale section it makes me think these other types of bumpers would be a bad idea.

However, if you look at post #109 in this thread there is a guy who says he is going to make them. Give him a shout.

Thanks very much,

Costs can not be calculated until the first batch is done, landed, boxes are made, customs paid, powder coating done and hardware kits assembled. We will be setting the prices just as the first bumper are ready to ship, that will hopefully be towards the end of the summer.

Understandable. Would it be prudent to get in touch with Holly for a deposit?

Correct, there is no more Holly. Now we have a Kim.

We aren't ready to start taking names or deposits yet.
As soon as we are we will post it here first.

The first batch will be a large run, so there will be no issue filling orders.

Thanks

Sorry, didn't see that while skimming the 8 pages.

Bumpers look great though.

The center A bar section is vertical. The outside bars lean slightly forward. It doesn't really have any pre-runner rake to it.
You can see the bumper all over our site for a good look.

Mike,
will they fit NAS D110 with AC without any modifications???
I do not want to use the extension part from Rovers North/ARB or cut into the AC surround.
MY ARB with the extension sticks out too far!
