Ive already stated that I'd make additional grills - they will be offered in the same fashion.
The problem with going the eBay route for the additional grills is there is no way the customer can effectively plan his build since there are so few of them to get purchased. So I as a buyer trying do my build with all the mods have to try and do so with alternate ideas in mind. Now, I can get in a bidding war with someone if we both want it and your profit margin goes up exponentially depending on how high we go. The only way to price it to sell for your price price is to sell it as just buy it now.
I have sold a few things on eBay and the costs are small if you are going to do a lower number of sells. Depending on how "fancy" your add is, the more it costs. Since you know you have a dedicated market, I would go minimalistic on the site and it should only cost you less than 10.00 to place the add. It will be billed to you monthly.
No way to keep that from happening unless it is buy it now only then what's the point of spending money on the eBay add unless you want to do it that way, as first come first serve versus taking orders. For the quality of your work and time you put into it,I think you should get paid. Put it up for auction and let's see how high it goes.
Get paid brother, your quality, time and passion deserve it. Just my thoughts.
