So spoke with PG&E(our power company) And they need to send an engineer down to see what it will take.

The guy on the phone said it could cost upwards of ten grand for a pole,transformer and new drop plus the new panels on my end.

Then enters the county permit department. OMG!
Talking to an old timer electrician he has said I could use two lines I already have plus a generator through a 3 phase converter to run everything. I'm looking into that also.

I know this was suggested before, but the diesel generator is probably the CHEAPEST way to go..

I worked for many years in the wireless world, and we had dozens of 25kw diesels that ran native 3-phase.. Find yourself a friend that's still in wireless and borrow a genny, or just rent one for a weekend or so..

The rental companies sell 'em off after so many hours, and although they're used, for the volume you'd be using them, it might be cheaper to buy a surplus one.

Look into the payment plan before you consider the installation of 3phase? They make you pay even if you don't use the power. Something about "standby" power if I remember correctly?

btw, go with the generator. You'll probably be doing runs of 50-100 so you can just rent or borrow a generator for a weekend a few times a year.

Hey Pokey, remember me?

You felt it was fine to threaten me - but that's OK, I'm right here at home and I'd love for you to come visit me. Bring it on and find out how far that'll take you. Really; I'm waiting.

So what has become of this new vendor that was supposed to be taking over the process? What did you end up doing with the vacuum machine you purchased?

I don't understand how you can put so much money into the R&D and fixed expensive up-front costs and then say the production costs are prohibitive. The per unit production cost (variable cost) is likely $10-20 a window. Since you already paid the thousands of dollars for the molds and production equipment I don't understand why you wouldn't make a run of 100 or so.

If you have no plans to go forward, why not offer the molds for sale? The alternative is to just use them as paperweights.

BUMP!

Just a CRAZY thought that maybe, just maybe, something new could be up in the never-ending 'Exact replacement GT Windows' saga.

I don't think Pokey has posted since the beginning of the year, anybody knows if everything is OK with him?

I would not expect to see any exact replacement sail panels anytime soon. Several people have tried and failed but one guy Chris Cook makes a very good replacement and is stil making them 15 years later. Except for the contour that is a little different than on the OEM windows, Chris windows are top notch.

Wow. I have not been here in awhile.

I still have the equipment.
I may trade it to a company in the area in exchange for a few hundred pulls. Depends on other things.
I also have a half built shop(25'x50') I wanted to set it up in at my home. I have other projectsa in mind i'd like to do and that would be great. I could judt use a large surplus generator.

The vendor has not done much with them. There has been a little progress but still less than I had already done. I believe they may have tested a couple of panels. Not sure.
I do know that the printing has not been worked out. I had it done before but that equipment is not around now.
So actually we have gone from ready to turn them out to testing stage again.

The costs of pulling panels is not' likely 20 bucks'.You have no idea what you're talking about. Sorry.
Doing a hundred sets is very expensive compared to doing 1000. Even 5000 isn't optimal and that is about the minimum done without short run charges.

I may very well offer them for sale. I almost did a few months back but after discussion decided to wait a couple weeks . It's been a minute since then. So I might.

Biggest problem is money is harder to make these days. So in other words I work harder and longer to make money.
Just my efforts in real estate in the last year has gained 300 G in equity on two properties plus relative positive monthly income and now working on third.
What that does is make my time more valuable.
I could fund the project but it just doesn't make sense for me.

So when I say prohibitive it isn't just about how much I can make on the sail panel project. It is also about how much more I make elsewhere by not doing it.
That renders the R and D costs irrelevant and wholly insignificant.

Still I have been thinking about doing something with it just not sure what.

Hey Max!

Yeah I would say they are about ten grand paperweights.

I have no idea what a bmwguru saga is but there is no strife involved if that's what that means.

He is referring to this.....

It all worked out in the end and WCF lost me as a customer because I will never deal with them again because of their complete lack of professionalism.

Nothing good,

I have talked to them several times with similar responses. It really isn't a priority for them and it isn't like they are going to make anyone any money.

I have had it on my mind to drive down there and get them but it is a 12 hour round trip that doesn't excite me.

The whole purpose in sending there was his buddy would do small runs for a good price but favors are like old soup cans. They sit on the back shelf forever.

This project started with three main guys.
The printer,evil genius Fabrication guy and me.
I'm the only one alive and that could have gone either way several times in the last few years.

I guess I shouldn't have taken them down there.

Maybe I can find someone coming up this way that could transport them.

I just scheduled a courier to pick them up tomorrow so I should recieve them on Sat.

I will get the ball rolling slowly here as I have time.
I will either sell them as is or get it set up for production again and turn it over to someone that is interested in the hassles of it.

I'm not going to be the third guy to die doing this project, that is for damn sure.

I am happy to see that you still have ownership of the dye's/molds. You spent a lot of time on this project, and should get to see it pay off. As you said, they will not make anyone rich, but you will sell them as fast as you make them, and having a cash cow, even a small one, can be really nice. There is such a need for good quarter windows, and I can only hope that you or someone else can bring them the rest of the way to market.

I just scheduled a courier to pick them up tomorrow so I should recieve them on Sat.

I will get the ball rolling slowly here as I have time.
I will either sell them as is or get it set up for production again and turn it over to someone that is interested in the hassles of it.

I'm not going to be the third guy to die doing this project, that is for damn sure.


Do you have them back in your possession now? I have tried the other "after market" window options, with bad results I, and just about every other Fastback Fiero Owner are wanting a good option for our quarter windows.

That's a big Fat no.

I called ahead and spoke with a fellow. He had said he knew what I was talking about and we even discussed if he could help wrap them in something protective.

But.... Apparently he did not really know what was up because the molds were not even in the shop. They are in the thermal molders shop somewhere in LA.

I could not have my Courrier running around LA pilling a trailer for them so that was that.

I pick up equipment and such from Fontana and Barstow often so next time I'll try and have my ducks lined up better.
I should have made arrangements earlier it would have worked out better but I only called literally the day before my fault.
