that price is just very wrong...

I'm in the printing buisness and all that kind of stuff to make is worth all of max $10 dollars to make at least 15 of them.... And yes I know what you are going to say.... I am seriously thinking of doing it myself and for fellow ford modders for a F%#ck load less

If I do end up doing it which shouldnt be too much of a problem, I would obviously need the dials to do this... the only thing on whoever does this has up on me is the fact that he can do pictures on them which is one thing I wont be doing...I will just do the normal joe blow with the added extra of whatever colour the person wants... I wont take orders yet until I can get some photoshop stencils of ford basis clusters.... I have the nf series in my falcon gli so obviously I'm starting there.... As for price I dont know... But I tell you after I work out the proper sums... and If you are a fordmodder price will be a hell of alot less....
The guy who sells them isnt doing a proper job as what i can see... and hasnt got the 15 year knowledge that I do in the printing industry... It can be done better...
I mean look at this one...

I certanly wouldnt pay $70 for that... It's very poor in effort!!! :evil:

They would be done on a special flexable DuPont film jim3964 paper would bleed the ink too much and show light blotches.... I'm thinking of using different colour backing for the KM's like on the first ebay post as he has done to get rid of the need to go out and spend $$$$ on different colour globes... I'm thinking that is why he thinks that he will get that price for it :lol:

I know the emtech guy a little and have seen his dial products and purchased carbon stuff from him. They are very good and kill those $70 s**t ones that places like speed grahpics and cruzn central sell. The guy makes really good products the dials are very solid and build well. You would never have any problems with them.

$125 isnt too bad considering I seen ford up here selling his product yes emtech ones they purchased from him, ford want $220. This was in the main ford spare parts centre at Eagle Farm.

I do definatly agree his is a rip off though

I know what you mean blinkAU I wasnt talking about emtech as a poor product! the other mob is...
I just cannot understand the price emtech is asking for.. Like I said I'm a qualified printer and know what it would cost to make it just by looking at it!...
The thing is that to buy something like that at that price with the first ebay post i did... Its and outragous price for something simply made... There is at least 300+ mark up on something that some poor soul will buy who doesnt know better.
