Who would be interested in USDM 08-09 rear bumper vents?
Does anyone know a cheaper way to produce about 100 of these? Your own company. A friend?
I have been quoted $12,000 to get a mold made and then material costs to have it done.
I will look into vacuum forming but to keep initial costs at a minimum (i dont have the funds to fund a mold) I think I may just sell prototypes off my 3D printer when I am done completing the CADD

Thanks for staying up to date with this
I do not have the means to fund the project right now, to pay for everything initially and then hope to break even months down the line. I dont think anyone would put deposits down to help me pay for the material and mold to get done. And I honestly wouldnt want something to happen and then I owe everyone money. So, I am not going to ask that.
At this point, I may make them off my 3D abs plastic printer. It would cost at least $100 in time and materials to make so if people are that interested, I may make a small batch. It takes about a day to print a set. so, it would be a one off type of thing for now since I can not afford the molding process. So, I dont know if people are willing to pay that much but I am going to go ahead and work on the prototype and if people are interested, I will sell them something that matches my prototype. I will try to have pictures and a prototype done in the next few weeks
I am talking with a company who i gave a jdm rear vent set to and i was interested in asking them to model a set that will fit our usdm rear bumper.
Just seeing how much interest there would be on the boards to make sure i dont lose any money by going through with asking them to make them.
They are not sure on price because they havent started yet. But if these were to fit well, how much would people be willing to pay? They said about $45+ for a set if i can get 10 sets ordered. But again, they threw an estimate.
Just wondering if people thought that would be too high to pay and i can discuss it with them more. Thanks
P.s. hopefully im not breaking any rules since im not a vendor, etc. I was just seeing if there were interest so i can try and offer something to you guys
**See Post 72 for more JDM vent pictures to hold everyone's interest =)*
**See post 34 for my answers and post 36 for a pic of the jdm vent being held up to the usdm bumper**
**See Post 94-107 for progress and hold up and possible different route of producing these
**Also, this will probably come in white. Could easily be painted flat black to look like the JDM ones but who would be interested in me dropping a few sets at the body shop to get them color matched? Of course, i would charge what the shop charges me but itll probably be cheaper for me to get a few sets painted at one time. As opposed to you guys going to a shop and just getting one set painted**

you might want to include pics of the usdm vs jdm.
i might be interested for $45. i wanted to get a jdm set a while ago until i learned that they won't fit our bumpers.
Wow...I thought you had abandoned this project.
Interested if its around 45 bucks.
would need to see some pics but I might also be game
Im totally in!
If i get more inquirys, ill sell em for a little more so i can recoupe some money to at least get my set for free. if i sell 9 sets at 50, ill get my set for free....
I would totally be in on this if you can get them produced that cheaply and they look like the JDM versions!!!
anyway i could make it fit an 05 lgt? if so im in...
Rapture, this is just a guess but I am thinking that these would take the place of the rear bumper reflectors on the 08-09.
I'm in if the price is right!
hah thats what i get for scanning...... im retarded ...
i was thinkin man how the hell are they getting these for soo cheap.disregard my interest.whoops.:!
Including Opie, there are 8 of us so far, well for the price of 45
For $50 I'm in
