    Guys/Gals, yes everyone is a potential victim. PM launches email which is easier to admin, and it lets other threads rise above the fold. Don't worry about getting onto a list at this moment, and if/when another build is needed, then we do another build.

    Another build is probably always needed, How much are they? I would buy the whole build if necessary, So when others need a set, There readily available. LMK!

    A4LD/3L Frankentranny has been banished from my laboratory and is now cowering outside under the Aerostar.




    Door handle pivots are now on deck. Go,go,go,go.

    Hyper, how do I get one of these? My driver side door handle gave up a few days ago and crawling through the passenger side is a pain.
    Thanks for the pics, Until I saw the latest posts, I thought I'd have to learn to weld

    Your very first post is...about a broken door handle?
    Just stay tuned to this thread. Production and testing happens before sales. Until then there is no list, no telephone number, no secretary to take your order.

    I'm fab'ing components but my argon bomb doesn't arrive until monday. Fedex will ship anything.

    You could hold the key to the left, windows open, and open the inside door handle.

    My handle broke too and somehow the safety wire I used to fix it is still holding that pot metal together. Unbelievable.

    Hyper,
    First post... Just glad I found this thread.

    San Diego,
    I agree, using the key to open windows works... I also found out that my sunroof works!!! it had not opened since I bought the car. I also found that it does not close as it should (maybe that is why the previous owner had disconnected the switch). Also, doing all that in the rain... well, you can imagine.

    Have you tried re-synching the sunroof?

    TxGR8White,
    Head liner was redone on car before I got the car and it seems that, as sunroof did not open, they were not able to do it right. When I tried to close, some headliner material and glue got in the way. For a while, the inner sunroof was askew. Finnaly got it lined up and closed. Never heard of re-synching. How is that done?

    Do you ever get up in the morning and say to yourself, I think I'll wear my Darth Vader helmet today?

    You're poised for a "sell-out" before the 1st release!

    Pivots are crawling off the production line, but I'm still having to test and rework, meaning the tooling still isn't dialed in sufficiently.


    The TIG.
    I've got reading glasses on under my auto-darkening helmet and, under foot-pedal control, I'm walking 10 to 25 amps of lightening around an area about one-third the size of a pencil eraser.
    Someday I'll figure out how to capture this on video.


    Next week you should get a step-by-step thread and a price. Don't make any assumptions about ship date.

    Several betas shipped yesterday and today. The recipients are encouraged to review quickly and post comments publicly.
    Tutorial happens by the end of the day.
    Price will not be posted publicly, instead we will be doing a two-step rfq then paypal.
    Admin is being getting set up, including paying off the local mafia.
    More raw material getting procured.
    Probably open for business next week.
