Seeing as $425 from Poland was still too steep for most,
I've obtained quotes from local manufacturers for the skid plate/storage boxes.
See these threads for background:
It looks like for a minimum of 6 orders, I should be able to get them made for around $300USD plus shipping to you.
That is the lowest of the lowest prices I could find.
They will be 3/16 6061 for the base, and 1/8 5052 for the side boxes. I will also have an optional long front storage box on the front for a few extra bucks.
I will have them made waterproof as well.
I'm preparing detailed engineering drawings, and will obtain firm pricing in about a week (or maybe just a bit more)...Hopefully the price will come down a bit based on actual drawings, but there is also a chance it could go up a bit too.
Either ways, I doubt that we will ever get better pricing than that!
Please indicate your interest. Once I have firm pricing I will ask for a 50% deposit, and then I will place the order with the manufaturer.
So...can we put 6 orders together now???
Mccomstock, are you still wretchedly in?
