Sounds like Luis is going to start making the mats again in about a week. He’s posted the order numbers in the sequence they were ordered, so Juan can check against that to see how far out his are from getting made. Hopefully you’re just looking at a few weeks.Juan 59 DDWTParticipantSeptember 30, 2019 at 9:37 amPost count: 273

Not all of the chrome. Just the door handles came back.
I am having problems with the lock cylinder retaining screw. The chrome plating damaged the tiny 2.5mm threads. I ordered a special tap to clean them.
We also received the brass horn contact ring today.John JonesKeymasterOctober 7, 2019 at 9:56 amPost count: 5639
