    Lots baby!
    I am judging interest for a custom aluminum hold down for 1st Gens.

    I currently have a few variations for 2nd & 3rd Gens.

    If there is enough interest, I will start with some drawings to show you what the battery hold down would look like. After I have shown you a drawing, I will start a list for people that actually want to part with a little cash to own one.

    I am ready for deposits. Over the weekend, I will send everyone a PM requesting a deposit of $30. This is to be paid via paypal. If you are someone that needs to send me a check or a kidney, PM me and we will work something out. When I get ready to ship, I will send you a PM for the balance.

    When you send your paypal payments, do me a favor and put your screen name on paypal in the notes section.

    As a reminder, these are the prices:

    To make a unit with all of the hardware and domestic shipping (lower 48 states) in raw aluminum - no coatings, figure $75

    To make a unit with all of the hardware and domestic shipping (lower 48 states) in powdercoat with a contrasting TRD letters figure $95

    If we can get at least ten (10) people that want to play, I will do $65 for the raw aluminum and $85 for the powdercoat. These prices will only be good for the initial group buy. After the initial group buy the $75/$95 prices will apply.

    It will take about 5~6 weeks from the end of the collection of money, to the ship date.

    For powdercoated finshes, this is what I have used in the past:

    1. Textured black (matches TRD blower)
    2. Gloss white
    3. Gloss red
    4. Gloss black
    5. Textured red

    I have also made the aluminum in a satin/brushed finish and painted the TRD red or black and then clear coated. This is the same price as powdercoated.

    If you prefer one without the TRD engraved on the top, I can accommodate that request, but I am not doing any custom engraving.

    This is the list I have today 08/18/17. You have to 9/4/17 to pay me your deposit of $30. On 9/5/17, if I have ten (10) deposits I will start ordering materials. If I do not get my ten (10) deposits by 9/4/17, I will refund everyone's money. As you send me your deposit, I will marked it as received on the list.

    1. SwapYota - textured black with red TRD Paid in Full
    2. Kigmob - textured black with red TRD Paid in Full
    3. Beez - raw aluminum w/ TRD Paid in Full

    if they hold aftermarket batteries and are reasonably priced, i'd probably buy two.

    Lots baby!
    Price will be dependent on how many features that we need or want.

    To start off this is going to be larger than the unit that I make for the 2nd & 3rd Gen. So the material cost will be higher.

    I can see the need to make it adjustable to fit a range of batteries.

    and finally it needs to look slicker than the stock hold down.

    Am I missing any features?

    Interested. I already have a custom mount though... some all thread and a couple of blocks of wood :D
    I'm using an Optima battery atm so some adjustment ability to hold that would be required for me.
    And price, any ideas on price yet?

    Can you make one to fit an Odyssey battery? If so, I'm interested in black w/ Lunar Mist painted TRD letters.
