Trust me Rio...I'm working on it . All of the above mentioned bits should be (literally) ready in early/mid 2016, they are on the "to do" prototyping list as soon as some other items get wrapped up on this end. Exterior door handles, interior door latches, interior button sills/housing/escutcheons, window regulators, etc.

That said, thank you for posting the pics of the grille / wingtop vents / etc...they really look damn good on your rig!

Aluminium outer handles are available. They were featured in the latest 'Land Rover Owner International' magazine.

Lav - curiosity is killing the cat. Any updates?

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods after Jonas.

Sorry for the delay, been digging out/etc from the storm . But yes, everyone survived unscathed with the exception of some sledding bumps & bruises!

*Pretty much* everything is done except for few small bits & pieces, and once those are all wrapped up the entire batch (since I'm doing followup inventory run on just about every product in the lineup) will head to powdercoat. It is going to be a heck of a large batch of units for the powdercoat guys, so I expect that to probably be about 2-weeks for turnaround once everything is dropped for pc.

I'll keep everyone posted and report back once everything is officially in-hand and ready to go...

Affirmative....I've scrapped 3 designs already however, one of which was a 2-piece design that quite frankly "worked" ok but I just wasn't crazy about it. The *current* plan is to start with a much larger solid block (something like 1.5" thick most likely)....and mill it down to have the recessed headlight bucket/ring on the back.

I'm in-process on a production re-run of just about everything I currently carry (along with a few other new little bits). Once that is done and wrapped up later this month, I plan to turn back to the surrounds to get a working prototype that I'm comfortable with. So....it's still a little bit off, but next in the pipeline.

Yes, I referenced that in the "RRC speaker grill" thread recently....considering that route potentially for the Dash Grab Handle, and likewise the RRC speakers. Either way, if cast would still require some touch up milling - but from what I can see the cast is better route to go if there are lots of angles and/or funky details. I think because the surrounds are relatively flat I'd still rather go the CNC route.

Yes, as Pedro said...(though final product will be form-rolled to match the grille surround bend). Picking them up from powdercoat *hopefully* end of next week.
