Billet Aluminum First Gen Taco rear window latch pivots!

Hi guys,
New here. I've recently been posting in other Taco forums about a product I just introduced, and somebody suggested I post here also.

I've designed the part in CAD, and I have had a few prototypes laser cut. They worked awesome!
Just got my first batch run yesterday, and they are ready to sell!

They are available on eBay item 330695187582

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)

Mods: Feel free to move this thread if I'm out of bounds.

Thanks guys!

-JJ

This week they are $5 each, introductory price. Next week they'll go up to $10 each, which I feel is still very reasonable considering its $50 a pair from toyota for hinges.

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

THIS AUCTION IS FOR ONE PIVOT!! If you need a pair, order 2, and it will combine shipping costs automatically!

Re: Billet Aluminum First Gen Taco rear window latch pivots!

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
