When will my wheels be ready? Can I pay in installments? $75 each dole day, I can swing a few more dollars from the baby bonus when Shazza knocks out another kid

Great idea but destined for failure.
E series owners are amoungst the tightest of all tight a***.
It will be like anything at all where money is required to be spent. You will get lots of I want I want I want until it is time for people to commit and pony up the cash.
Then their cousins uncles dogs next door neighbours bondage mistress will be able to get them cast cheaper and they will pull out.
The pitiful excuses for f**k you around will be heavily punctuated with lollollol or lols.

Is that before or after the carton of VB and spare pair of double pluggers?

A perfect example of this is the run around I got (and am still dealing with) on a $20 tyre placard..... I had 30 people keen (EB GT Placard) and have so far received the money for 13.....

I am the person who is looking at doing this but as i suspected everybody has an opinion and people want projects like this too get of the ground as long as they dont have to do anything or risk anything. I would not ask any money from anyone until i had a guarantee that i had the numbers to proceed. i myself would be outlaying $20 or $30,000 myself to get things rolling and need around $100,000. I you dont have anything valuable to add than why comment. Thought it might give us E series owners an option not to mention EB GT owners. I am looking for another partner to tip in $30,000 which i am talking to one now which only leave $40k in private sales. If it doesn't happen than so be it but at least i had a go and it can be done so it up to the public whether it happens or not. I hope this clears thing up.

I think if this can be cast in both pre and post AU offset you might get more interest, some later model owners would definitely be interested in a set of 19's.

Why the f**k would they be made in post-au offset?
There are half a million wheels available post-au!
These wheels came out on EB/EL, and they should be made for EB/EL only.
Whats the point in making a limited run of wheels if they are available for every falcon owner and his dog to run.
As long as they are kept to E-series offset and kept under the 2k mark i think there will be some commitments.
What you (OP) need to do is obtain a formal written quote from the chosen manufacturer and get everyone who is keen to essentially "buy in" to the opportunity.
Without people buying in to it, it will remain the pipe dream that it is...
