I have a little more to do on the mold and should be able to start some parts production this weekend. I can release the products at a reduced cost and let the consumer install the product and drill air holes as needed. I will be willing to paint the product according to the paint code on your car for an extra fee.
Thanks Franklin

The price will be determined by what the consumer wants basically.

(1)I can release the product in a -basic form with no paint or holes drilled and no plugs for the holes and the consumer will have to attach it themselves.$95.00

(2)The -finished product with holes drilled. rubber or plastic plugs for the holes (that is when I find a source for them) and with some form of attachment $129.00 (this will probably be the retail price for finished product).

(3)Painting ADD for option (1) or (2) Use the paint code from your car or any color. $40.00

(4) Carbon Fiber -basic $129.00

(5) Carbon Fiber -finished (with holes, plugs, and some form of attachment).$159.00

Any Input?

I am hopping to have the basic model up for sale next week.

Thanks Franklin

Sounds like your progressing rather well! I don't think anyone much will care about CF, but they might like it with bling value...Still I'd concentrate on keeping cost down and making the install easy.

Looks good. Can't to see it on the car. Would be cool to see the benefits of the AeroPan.

I do believe I decided on a name and have some what commited to it.
The reason I chose this name is because it is not related to any other products or company's and it has a good keyword value.

Hybrid Grille Block

HGB by Hybrid Effects

I am polishing the mold now and I think I found a source for some plugs.
I am still researching a way to attach the HGB properly.

Like I have said before I will release some products in unfinished form to lower cost but I will also have a complete version done very soon I hope.

Thanks all Franklin
