If you get that product rolling I would be interested in multiple complete cage orders.

Sort of. and not.
I broke my ankle in November. So this completely made hash of plans to do the B-Hoop mold this winter (hard to lay-up epoxy and fiberglass on crutches). I'm finally to the point where I can work on my feet again, so I can start making progress on the mold.

Just a thought on how to create an impressionable wrinkle finish for the molds. I learned this the other day with a failed spray paint effort. Water sprinkled on aerosol (rattle can) paint during the first couple minutes of drying creates a lifted wrinkle finish that is hard enough to create the concave wrinkle/texture in the rubber.

Perhaps there are many other ways. Just thought I'd throw this one out there if it hadn't been tried yet.

Another is to use underbody trunk spray and when it dries light sand the high points to blend, light respray if needed. Then spray it with some black trim paint 😀

Would that create the actually finish or the reverse of the finish for the molds?

I’m curious what progress has been made on this too. Seems like if enough people are interested then we could get a company willing to build them. I’m sure Safety Devices could supply the cage parts. Then for the molding perhaps a company that manufactures steering wheels? Seems like the steering wheel for these trucks is a similar material.
