Re: [DML] New dash/binnacle and other parts update



YEA 
Please put me out of the dash and binnacle refurbishing business.
 
They are a pain to recover and we do this only because No one else is recovering them and it took a special fixture to punch the holes back in to match the original speaker cut out.
 
We have done about 20 in the last year and a half. With the number rising.
 
I'll take two when you are ready and will retire my recovering fixtures on the mantle above the fireplace.
 
The demand for recovered dashes has really increased and if anyone has any cores they are not going to use we can use a few to bridge over until DMCH is up and running 
 
UPS likes to break them in two.  We lost 2 so far but insurance does not get us functional cores.

Fourth set of samples for the dash in due in next week. The last sets
of dashes/binnacles had problems where they were not interchangeable
NEW to OEM - for example, an original dash and a new binnacle did not
fit well together and vice versa. This fourth set of samples should
have that corrected.

The vinyl material covering the binnacle has proven very difficult to
match, though we have recently located a supplier who can make it for
us - the problem is the minimum quantity for this special
material/color is 4500 linear meters, at $5 per meter, also about
3500-4000 meters more than we need for binnacles. We're negotiating
now to see what we can get them down to on the quantity.

LH Escutcheons and console covers are approved for production, just
waiting on these last two pieces to be approved so they can all be
molded at the same time.
