      ONLY ONE LEFT

      Get it while it lasts, first PM in get's it. If more PM's roll in I may discuss making a smaller run with the sheetmetal shop but the price will be a few bucks higher since the quanity would be lower (set-up time).

      Thanks to all whom have bought them, as of now you are one of the 21. IF people still want one please PM me, when I get enough together (minimum of 5 people) I'll have more made, I'll also have to get them priced. I know 2 guys (one thru PM and one who posted) that never followed up on getting one so they are a potential 2 of the 5 I'd like to have before I order.

      Once work slows down a bit I'll be looking into the sill plates and rear trim above the license plate.

      I evidently got the last Dead Pedal cover, and was pleasantly suprised at it's heft. I was somewhat reluctant to purchase it as I felt it would be light and flimsy, and it wouldn't work very well.

      But after opening the package, here was this rather heavy (for aluminum), well made cover. It installed in seconds and really stays in place and does the job.

      A great idea that was well executed. So if they are made again, I recommend it to all of you who are considering it. NICE job...Dan.

      What an oversight on Chrysler's/VW's part not to have a factory unit made for this location; and an aluminum set with pedal covers as well as the dead pedal cover should have been available through the accessories catalog.

      I'm glad you like it, I tend to go overboard when designing a part. It's actually Stainless Steel, I contemplated making them from aluminum, but didn't want to have to deal with plating the part to avoid corrosion from road salt in the winter. The stainless should not rust or corrode.

      Thanks for the feedback, good and bad is always welcome.

      Buy one - you will not be disappointed.

      Well made, fits well, and protects an area that would quickly get ugly and dirty.

      Buy one.

      Received mine today ... excellent product. If there's another production run, you don't want to miss out! Thanks again.

      First off, thanks to those whom have left the positive comments about the dead pedal quality, truly appereciated!!!!

      Secondly, I have had a few PM's requesting a dead pedals I believe I have about 3/4 spoken for. I'm only having 10 made so that leaves me with 6/7 left again. If you are intersted PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE PM me with the following info:

      FULL name
      FULL street address
      EMAIL address
      HOW YOU ARE PAYING either PAYPAL or Check/Moneyorder.

      I will send you an invoice thru paypal for the total with shipping. If your paying by Check or M/O I'll email you the total(NO RUBBER CHECKS, I get charged more for a rubber check than what I'm selling a dead pedal for!). I ship them priority mail, from east coast to west coast is just under 10 bucks. I haven't had one over $30. I don't jack the shipping, if some people have noticed I add delivery confirmation----at MY cost. At the end of the day this is a break even deal for me, I do it because I think that making something that no one else does is COOL.

      The dead pedal is $21.00 with velcro, I'm no longer offering them without it. Once I debur them I wrap and box them and put them on my shelf, I don't want to worry about which ones have it and which ones don't.

      Delivery to me is about 2 to 2-1/2 weeks, I should be able to ship in 3 weeks. I will not request money until I'm ready to ship. Typically I can ship the same day you pay me if it's not too late and I'm around (I travel for work).

      PLEASE FOLLOW the above guidelines, I'm trying to streamline the process and don't want to play PM tag for all the info.

      Thanks again to 58kafer ... nice craftsmanship, adds a bit of bling and its close to matching my '09's stainless steel trim, should work well keeping the carpet clean during the worst winter months. As there really isn't anything like this out there this was a welcome addition --- plus a really easy "install", just press into place.

      Finally got my 2011 Routan Highline last week. I'd like to have one of these. Would you consider selling and shipping to the Communist North (Canada) when you make your next batch?

      That's some good work right there.

      I have a R32, but same deal basically. Dirt always gets caked under mine.

      Just giving this a bump up, just shipped out two more today. I have three left before I'm out again, so if anyone's interested just send me the info I requested in the thread previously. If I need to make more I will.

      SOLD OUT AGAIN

      I'm all out of inventory. If anyone still wants one I'll make more, I should have an a new batch in roughly 1 to 2 weeks.

      33 Routans have them now! I never thought this many would go but I'm glad I'm able to help others out. I really appreciate the positive feedback I get from you guys whom have purchased them! Just want to give everyone a BIG THANKS!

      I have FINALLY received the first one for a test fit before the other 9 are bent(and test fitted, again). I should have the remaining 9 on Friday. If anyone is interested please follow the guide lines below while PM'ing me. I know that atleast 3 are already spoken for, so that leaves me with 7 left. They're still only $21 USD + postal shipping to your front door.

      I do apologize for the extended delay, the sheetmetal shop/waterjet have been extremely busy lately. Thanks again for your patients!

      PM me with the following info:

      FULL name
      FULL street address
      EMAIL address
      HOW YOU ARE PAYING either PAYPAL or Check/Moneyorder

      If paying with paypal, I'll send you an invoice when I am ready to ship that way everything stays kosher
