Thanks for the link. I think the shipping is the same ($50) for 1-10 items. If so, a set of 6 would be $350.

It's not.

If you plug in the number of units (6) in the shipping section and click on "Get Rates", you will see the shipping price out at $300 fer 6 units.

Shipping of 6 pieces to us is 150$ that is with fast delivery. If you are not in a hurry even cheaper. That 50$ shipping is for europe between 1-10 pcs.

Part price you have to ask with private message if you are also interested, but that 50$ is ebay price...

I havent reneved that ebay ad because it was there for two months and I got only one deal. I you are interested go to Less drag = Less fuel | Aerodynamic add on parts | Tuneko Ltd and send some feedback through contact page or private message here at ecomodder.

Bamzippow read your private messages.

On ebay you have to give some price estimation (50$) for sending. I can calculate exact prices when I know how many capsels have to be send where and in what time... If you need them fast it will cost more. DHL fast is from finland to US 4 business days is what they promised me and that price should be that 150$ for 6.

How durable is the chrome looking one? Will the finish hold up over time?

Same fer the clear one...will cracks show up over time?

I think you have a good idea in yer product. Just not sure about the price point or durability of the product over time. If a trucker spends $300 on something...he's gonna want it to last a long time.

- Basic ABS version is designed to last over 5 years. This is also the cheapest version.

- From polukarbonate I dont have exact lifetime results yeat because it can start to crack like you said. There is little stress applied when FleXcaps are installed and there is also some chemicals involved when you clean yout truck. Both cause cracks in the long run. costs about 20$ more.

- Chrome finish version is manufactured so that chrome will last in place. But again real life test is ongoing. Costs about 20$ more.

What comes to savings. Truckers spend 1000$ on average to fuels per week this means FleXcaps will save their price in:

1000*0.01=10$ per week
6*50=300$
300$/10$=30 weeks= 7 and half month.

So at the price of 50$ us dollars and 1% fuel savings roi time for 6 capsels is under 8 months. If you dont believe that those will save even that much then make your own calculation. with 0.5% it 15 months.

I will start own thread to FleXcaps because this was for Zipties
