Updated the product pics to reflect the latest design. We also changed a few parameters to help keep the surfaces smoother after treatment.



Current lead time is 2 weeks. We are still a little backed up after the hurricane recovery.

Best,
D

Unrelated to the fins (which look great btw). Do you guys have any other projects coming down the pipe for our platform? I feel like you guys could really nail a wing extension sort of like the mountune or maxton design parts. Also, I'd love to see somebody build something useful into that little hole in front of the shifter. There's also a huge selection of areas inside the car that could maybe benefit from some 3d printed bling. I recently saw somebody suggest a 3d printed foglight housing that was a direct replacement for the oem foglight housing, but had a second opening for a brake cooling duct or lower air intake hose from the mountune / ST200 airbox. Just a few ideas to consider if you're looking to add to the FiST lineup.

I have some plans for some switches and a home brew ethanol content gauge to go there and a contour matching blanking plate would be super helpful in getting that done.

REally like the news ones. Adding them on the list for the spring refresher. But imagine if they had the ST logo embossed in them. [thumb]

OK, LOL (I expected some responses like this one, or worse. [grinking] )

But, seriously, DO you have the capability to print wing edges/spoilers, and front splitters/ [dunno]
Unfortunately we can't make parts that big, well we could but they would be multi part assemblies and that is a huge headache when it comes to aerodynamics (no seams, no gaps, alignment etc...). I doubt we will pursue aero wings and splitters, that isn't our low hanging fruit. Might want to hit up guys like Velox (Verus?), they are pros at that.

best,

D

Yes, there is also Power Stream Industries, but they are 3x the price of anything else on the market currently for our cars, even though NOT being made of carbon fiber/kevlar material (but they ARE FULLY functional, not just 'bling'). [:(]

Dan,
As you know I have been interested in these from the start.
I stopped working on my car because of back issues.
I am now on a fixed income and that is totally broken.

I am now starting to work on the car again, adding things that have been setting for the past year and I would like to add a set of these fins.

Please let me know, if and when you may have your next sale.
I also qualify for "Old Guy" or "Veteran" discounts. :)


Dave
