Okay, lets have "another head count" on these phase 1 headlamp rims.

Last time I got a price on manufacture of these I really needed 10 pairs (that's 20 rims) to start the ball rolling. I can get 66no blanks cut from brass. These I have to pay up front in one go.

Then from this "stock" I can get batches spun, worked on a tool, polished, plated,polished, chromed.

I'm sure I had someone come up to me and ask for a pair but I'm buggered if I can remember who, please email me AND add your name here.

This also raises the question of fixing holes. I have two fixing points on my rims and they are still on the car after 20 years road use. Standard they had one ( as far as I can tell) and most of them didn't make it out of Slough (like a lot of people too!)

Basing the figures on people here and on these threads:

http://peerless-gt.activeboard.com/t61023613/headlamp-rims-phase-1/

Names so far:

1 set. Eric B

2 sets. Dan W

1 set. Kieth W

1 set. Marcus/Steve

1 set. David E

1 set. Hanspeter K

1 set. for me!

So that's 16 rims by my reckoning, PLEASE jump in and lets get this moving, again.

are the following still interested?

Greg T, Steve J and Mike RF

These are metal rims with chrome? Not plastic resin as some are doing??

Depending on cost, I would be good with two (2) sets in lieu of the one (1) set you have me down for right now.

Hi Nigel,

What would be the price for a set if you have enough demand?

Might be tempted to buy a spare set.

Thanks,

Erik

1 set. Eric B

OK kids, looking at the quantities we have and talking to all concerned we're looking at a finished cost of £160 per pair. I think that is a very reasonable price for solid brass and chrome.

If you were to see a pair of them hanging up at Beaulieu auto jumble would you expect them to be less??

How many takers do I have now?
