New potential products for 510's and Datsun from Mattndew76

Postby Mattndew76 » 18 Mar 2014 16:14

Guaging product interest. I have two items I want to swing by the crowd to test the interest.

The picture is of a Subaru cusco third member oil cover. The other is for a battery tray. I would be making similar items with visable datsun or 510 monikers.

I may be interested in a battery tray if the price works.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

I would be in for one then. Just let me know when you have one designed that I can see and we will work it out.
thanks

I will post images of the solids once final designs are completed.

I would probably buy one of the diff covers.... it would be a little overkill for me.... but it looks killer.....

You know it's all about over the top functional bling.

"Over the top functional Bling" hehehehehe!!! That's classis Matt. My functional Bling is from Perrin that I got a great "Discount Sale" deal on. Is it functional? Oh ya, Bling? Oh Ya, But still unnerved on guys checking out my rear end.

I like how both the Cusco and Perin different covers increase the capacity, but the Perin cover takes better advantage of utilizing the surface area to assist in cooling making it a much better design in my eyes. Maybe something to consider Matt.

Would you be planning on making R180 covers?

I am going to be doing extra cap covers for R160 and R180. I want to utilize more cooling fins than the Cusco shown.

I may be in for a diff cover as well, R180 please. Are those extra fittings pictured for a pump/cooler? Hmmm, interesting.

On the Cusco image they have the extra bungs for a remote cooler. I will also keep that feature.

I'm guessing at this point but price should not accede the $300.00 level. If a Perin cast finned covers can be had for 295$ I don't see why I couldn't produce for comparable price or less. Once I have my solid model completed I can give a more defined price for you guys.

Can you design it with a bung or plug on the bottom so as to make it a easier fluid drain?

So drain plug access is best where? All opinions and reasoning welcome. So far I just planned on putting the drainage on the face at the lowest point possible, but underside sounds like you can't get much better ;)
