Phase 1 Headlamp rim production


Hi all,

I have just about finished the design for the P1 headlamp rim production tooling.
Now before ordering material and starting to spend money on this I would like to know how many people are interested in a pair of rims.

The rims will be made of polished stainless steel to keep the cost down.

If made from brass, and then high quality chromed the price would go up by 80 pound a pair.
Brass is more expensive than SS, but chroming is really expensive.

Right now the price for a pair of SS rims would be around 200 Pound / 235 Euro / 305 Dollar to cover tooling and material cost and manufacturing time, assuming 10 pair of rims are going to be produced.

So please let me know if you want a pair of rims,

(I dont know if Nigel also has something cooking on this subject?
He has not yet responded to my mail and text message.)

The copy below came out in the currant TRaction (TR Magazine) last week (yea should have got it on here earlier!) so have a read and add your interest here for now so I can gauge interest/amounts etc†biggrin

The third bit of news I have for you this year is also good news (see, on balance it's going to be a good year).

Phase one headlamp rims are in the prototype stage and tooling is being assessed so we can obtain a fixed price. If you remember Alan House and I instigated the first ever batch of these way back in the early nineties with help from Peter Clayton who lent us his original pair of rims to copy. As far as we knew they were the only pair in existence at the time.

Early talks with the manufacture indicate that we can produce a batch of thirty pairs, chrome on brass, estimated at 1.2mm thick for around £150 a pair. this sounds a fair price as the first batch were (I think) £90 a pair 20 years ago!. †I did get back in touch with the previous manufactures of the first batch but their costs are extortionate. let me know your thoughts (keep it clean please).
