Only the one which will take work to make it useable, I'm working on other sources and will do a run of 5 or so to start off with.

As for the buttons, I found some locally to make the prototypes. They're the pub version though and not the solder lug so I hope they're still useable. Will wait and see.

Final version I hope to anodise black so hopefully that will hide some of the bulky look.

Mudders, have you done your roadbook in rally navigator? Can you print to PDF? I think I have found an ipad mini solution to go paperless. Just waiting on a remote to show up and test... Would be keen to hit the trails at some point to try a few things out.

Interesting site Joe. Its not taking a direct import of my files and theyre too complicated for me to bother rebuilding in their software.

Have you priced parts from them before?

No
I thought it was a nice idea but after looking into it apparently there quality control can be a bit sketchy and lead times are all over the place.
Which lead me to believe they might outsource to china.

Prices are a bit up there a well.


Have you tried any local places?

A couple, prices were through the roof. Something I could get 3D printed at shapeways for $35US they wanted anywhere between $300-1000! Only cnc place that bothered to reply was Force Accessories but they were expensive for one offs as well. At least they were willing and replied. Customer service is severely lacking in Australia.

And they bitch about no work , some times doing a few jobs at cost can be very rewarding in the future especially with the closure of the Aussie automobile industries

Yeap very little foresight in many small businesses. Granted things shouldn't be done at a loss, but the lack of service here in Aust is a joke.
Retail is full of overpaid wankers. Their time is ending soon.
