I reckon we wait for Pete first as he's put a lot of effort in to do these for us, if he falls through though I'll be in for a set.

Yes it's not the first time that's happened to me, but I'm finishing the second mould today and testing it tomorrow. After that, I'll make 10 sets at a time and keep them on the shelf. I'm not changing the price for members, nothing like $99.95, I'm keeping mine below $50

What I meant was that in the past I've set up and made castings and rubbers no longer available, next thing the Yanks suddenly are making them, it pays to keep your mouth shut lol

Roadster parts in particular, can get em all in the US now

Latest update; everything is fine now and all go with both moulds, made the first set and will continue making till all those who still want a set get them..only a couple of teething troubles which I'll sort out over the weekend, then in production...the first set look great, they're for my car at long last but they are even better than the first one I posted (photo) earlier in thread because the tin of liquid was old and I've been in touch with the sales Rep, I've known him for years and he's looking after me now, making sure I get the latest date supplies

Three main tips for fitting hinge boots; 1) round off the ends of the hinge pins so they don't cut the boot when fitting, they need to be forced a bit, even the originals were like that. 2) check square hole in body for sharp edges and anything that might interfere with fitment. 3) use some Permatex non hardening sealant around square hole in body or around corresponding part of boot (behind boot flange), alternatively you can stick the whole area of the flange to the body with some sort of glue or sealant that won't lift the paint when removing boot at a later stage

If you don't have the thin sheet metal backings anymore I'll make a dummy one and post a photo so you see how you can make them, it's a simple easy shape that will do the job well as a substitute for the originals...it's not the best of ideas to bolt the hinge directly against the rubber, the larger surface area metal backing will give the hinge a more solid surface to bolt to and the rubber won't "squeeze" out so much

Mate, your copies look soooo good. I am still keen for a set. I am finding I end up with water working its way through there into the boot. For that reason I think it would be quite important to get a good seal particularly along that bottom edge so the water can't drip into the cabin.

Hi Pete
Have been watching the thread and sounds like a great outcome and amazing efforts.
Can I list for a pair whenever you have production meeting demand?
Appreciate the efforts.
Cheers
Ian
