Quoted from Mneubey:
Please add me to the list as well.

got you on the list will have some mold updates tomorrow.
Ok I now have updates. The mold is being "baked" and will be ready this week. Pricing based on the number of people interested (low) it will work out to 170 shipped to lower 48. Currently there is about 16 including myself committed. Minimum was 21. so there will be a couple of extras. I have been told two to three weeks for final product, trimmed, painted and with silver mylar exactly like the original. Ill need to find a proper size box and packaging and then get them packed. That time is included in the time frame. Price is without the screw holes, but that should not be too hard for people to do. If the concensus is everyone wants holes let me know and Ill get a price.
Ok so the mold is at the plastics manufacturer! Whoo Hoo! There were a few change based on their feedback and here we are a week + more later. They indicated they will be starting the work early newxt week. So hopefully I will have them in my hands late next week. I have a few days to change my order quantity. So if anyone is in our out from the original requests please let me know.
The manufacturer told me today they were using .080" PETG which is thicker than the stock 1/16" (.062") material. This is good. They will also be ready to install with mounting holes and properly trimmed including the backbox key relief.
Here are some pictures;
This is the template for the mounting holes and will become the base for the mold.
Here is a picture of the pcompleted mold including the trim template
Thanks ! I cant wait for the final result myself so I can empathize with you! I have a machine been missing a topper for over a year! As soon as I get them from the manufacturer i'll update you with pics!
