This current gig will be complete soon enough and I'm trying to organize things so that full-time IICE focus can happen. Maybe we can talk about it sometime.

So can we start ordering IICE products now????

That's pretty good…

The first response in under 10 minutes and of course it's one of the Texas contingent who jumps in with both feet…

I think it's a new record…

I have 15K miles on the original product. If your claims for the next are half as good I will be a happy camper. I know of several other buddies that will be in shortly asking for one also. Me thinks that the first batch should be a couple of hundred of them.

Back to riding! PS, 600 miles of twisties around the redwoods, I love it. It seemed that I would go a couple of hundred feet, roll off the gas, corner then back on the gas. Nice and smooth. Yup I am a happy camper!

I ordered another 1.4L of resin and curing agent and it will be here Friday or Monday. Also I just got off the phone with the chemical engineer that formulates their products. He says it's a typical issue that happens if the resin isn't properly stirred before mixing with the curing agent. Ahh... yea... that would be me. He went on to say that the over-concentration of solids could be filtered out, restoring the product to normal.

So I set up a coffee filter, and the resin seems to be slowly drip-dripping through there. I'll be back around dinnertime and we'll see how it went.

After filtering out the solids from the resin, there was enough resin to do 24 of the 30 pieces. They are curing now, and will go out tomorrow. An order of 1.4L of resin and curing agent will be here Monday and assembly can continue.

Question

Sorry if it sounds like I'm being a pain poolside, but... I don't see my initials on the list C.B., CT and I ordered a month ago (6/13). Did I not make the cut for this batch? I could swear that I remember seeing a few open spots before I ordered. I could provide a PayPal transaction ID number if necessary for clarification. Thanks in advance!

I understand C.B., the order list is up to date. I don't update the list very often, probably not as often as people would like. There are usually 30 pieces to a batch, and on the list the batches are separated with dotted lines.

How/why did I get bumped to the next batch? Now, I'm #1 on the batch that has not even started the build process... WTF...?

Didn't you just order yours in late May? I'm the last one in the prior batch and ordered back in January. So, you do have to wait a little. Some of the orders (international) are multiple ones so they don't correspond one for one. Have patience grasshopper.

No one was bumped, Mac. It's close to what kimokk said. I just hadn't placed the dotted line between the 30 piece batches.
