Can someone with molding skills make custom Fiberglassed Door In

Can someone with molding skills make custom Fiberglassed Door Inserts? adamj5 was making them but he backed out because he presently doesnt have enough spare time to work on them. He even asked for anyone with fabrication skills to step up to the plate and take a swing at this. Has anyone taken his challenge? Ive seen some of you guys with molding skill make some AWESOME custom projects. So Im sure that this shouldnt be hard to make. A lot of people were interested in both NC and EverythingCelica. Check it out|

https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthrea...part=1&vc=1

Im more than sure that it will be no problem to make some profit from these. I really want these Fiberglass Door Panel Inserts because I messed up my leather inserts. cry Actually, I really need these because every time I look at door panel I feel like shooting myself for messing them up. angry Anyone that is planning to make these please let me know. thumbsup

You should start your own interest thread in the group buys forum and include the different prices for various interest, i.e. 1-5 people = $X, 6-10 people = $Y, and so on.

adamj5 gave us a $40 - $60 price range for unpainted Fiberglass ones without shipping but not sure how much it would cost for a painted ones or in that case Carbon Fiber ones. Not sure about anyone else but I would be willing to pay a little more if the quality is GOOD. Also, would you be painting them for us? However, let us know what your boss says because I really need this ASAP.

If they were carbon fiber, I'd pay $100 or less (shipped), for the pair.

ok I talked to my boss today and he said we can do it but we need at least 10 people willing to put down at least a $50.00 dollar deposit on a pair. He said that they would run 300.00 for unpainted Fiberglass and 500.00 for finished carbon fiber(those prices are for a set and most likely shipped). The price is so high right now because the cost of materials and man hours is going to be high and we have to make a profit.He said it will take about 2 weeks to get a really good mold that we can make final products from. But if we get a lot of people willing to buy the price may come down some. Email me if interested at daveg357@yahoo.com

He's right here... tell you what, i'll prototype a pair if i can get enough people to put deposits (like, $20 each) so that i can afford a pair from adamj5 to mold. I don't want to mold my doors, becuase i just got done dying them, and putting new inserts in them... and, i just don't want to redo all of that work (i hope you all understand). Let me know people!

Im down for the $20 deposit but I dont think that adamj5 made any others to sell. However, we could all put in money to buy used door panels from a junkyard or from ebay.com. I found this on ebay, I wonder if this guy still has the door panels.

There are 2 members from New Celica Brian00GTS & LilRocketSpyder that are completely parting with everything because their Celicas have been totaled. I asked them both about the door panels, still waiting for reply.

that's way too much i bet you could almost get them from toyota for that price! i hope that the other people get back to you soon.


i've worked things out, and here's what i'm thinking for a price...

for 10 people $125.00 shipped

for 20 people $110 shipped

those prices are for a set of two inserts, primed.

I will off them painted red or black (your preference) for an extra $20 per set.

Let me know if those prices sound reasonable to you.
