First off, I'd like to apologize for falling of off the face of the earth and missing both thread updates and even some Private Messages. I tried to respond to all but may have missed some. My excuse is that my day job (software engineer) has had me very busy of the last year with long days and weekends.
Things are still busy, but I think I can shoehorn in another run of these tailgates.
Since I have very little room in my garage I'd like to pre-sell these with a small $20 deposit. This just ensures that they don't sit in my garage for months.
The total cost will be $150 plus shipping. How much is shipping? This depends on the location. With the last run the largest shipping charge within the 48 contiguous states was $50. Most of the time it was between $30 and $40. If this is a concern for you please send me your address and I can give you an estimate. Or, if the cost of shipping is above $50 when it comes time for the final buy and this changes your mind, I will completely refund your deposit.
I need to pre-sell at least 10 of these tailgates to meet the minimum requirements for the shop to cut and bend. More than 10? Great! Less than 10 by the cutoff date, I will completely refund everyone's deposit.
The cutoff date I'm kicking this off with is Friday, February 28. I've never done this before so I have no idea if this is too soon or too late, but we will find out.
If you're looking for more information on these, please check out the following threads. I'd also like to thank everyone that added useful information to these threads.
So there you have it! For any questions, you can post in this thread, or email me: email@example.com. I do respond to PMs, too, but email is one less step.
If you want in on this, please PayPal $20 to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your Name/Handle so I can add you to the list.
BTW, yes, I still have my 2007 Tacoma and the tailgate still looks like it did in the first thread above.
