Xtra cab Quarter Window Latch Repair

Get em here guys! http://www.ebay.com/itm/230783218338
If you dont use eBay:
http://dasherdeals.ecrater.com (Enter the code "tacopivot" during checkout for free shipping!!)

Hi guys,
New here. I'm here to gauge level of interest in replacement billet aluminum quarter window latch hinge pivots.

I've designed the part in CAD, and I have had a few prototypes laser cut. They work awesome!
I'm now working on getting them in bulk to sell. 200 units total, probably around a month. I'll be selling for around $10 a pair, or $6 each.

AFAIK (Please correct me if I am wrong here!) there was a guy making these for a while, but I hear he disappeared. I also heard his service wasn't so great, and that his part rattled. I have designed my part with a extra snug fit on the pins, so they shouldn't rattle.

I have a well established eBay Top Rated Power Seller account with 100% positive feedback, and can be trusted. (eBay ID DasherDeals)

Let me know if you're interested guys. I'll announce news as I get it!

Thanks,
JJ

I would have been interested...Just spent $60.00 at Toyota for the plastic latches. Depends on the price point. If you can sell these for $10.00 each I am sure there would be a lot of interest.

I'll be offering them @ approx $10 a pair as an introductory deal.

Update:
I called the machine shop today, as these have been running late. They had a delay getting the material in to cut them. They'll be done tomorrow, and sent to me via UPS 2nd day air. I will hopefully have the first batch of 200 units in early next week!

First orders should start showing up today. Let me know what you think, and how it fits! If the majority are good, I'll order the 2nd batch.

Thanks,
JJ

Well guys, I'm pretty much all sold out on the first batch! (200 of them) Feedback so far has been terrific!
I just ordered 800 more, and should have them in about 3-6 weeks.
I'll keep you all updated!

Thanks again,
JJ

Hey guys, I created a Ecrater site to purchase these. If you dont use eBay/PayPal then this is the best alternative.
