LM Corvair 16gb Memory Sticks

Unread post by SteveH » Wed Dec 21, 2016 5:18 pm

Hey folks,

I just finished a project at work where we used a vendor to mold custom shaped USB memory sticks as promotional items.

Got me thinking.. (dangerous, I know)

So two days ago I sent them a bunch of pictures of my 1965 "Field Find" Corsa to use as a model. The attached image was their first pass.

Clearly, the nose is WAY wrong and the tail is too narrow. I think the front-to-back and side-to-side proportions are off as well.

They are taking a 2nd pass now. I should have updates by Friday.

at 16gb each a run of 100 will cost me about $1200 ($12/each) including the mold setup cost (IN AS MANY DIFFERENT COLORS AS I WANT!!!!) so to be reasonable I was thinking at a selling point of $15 + Shipping....

Thoughts? (I will be posting this to FB and CC as well btw)

I need one in "Regal Red" (rgb:219, 44, 77).

Since I have a Turbo Corsa, can I get USB 3.0 support ?? :rolling:

it was also suggested on FB that we have the split at the base of the rear window to honor the rear engine.... I like it and asked that tonight

Maybe just sell it with a paint kit. I feel like the most popular color would be "rust."

UPDATE from the Vendor:
"We are about a day behind in communication with our graphic artist, so please allow some time for revisions. The request for the USB split in another location may not reach him in time for the next rendition.

Once we have finalized the rendering, we can then choose the colors you wish. We use PMS colors for these shapes, so we can get as close as possible to the color chart you provided. "

WOO HOO!!

UPDATE:
This is the first pass after they scanned a physical model! (thank you HANK!)
We have a few tweaks to make but we should have a finalized design by the end of the week.
SO Close....

THE FINAL VERSION!!!!!!!!!

They fixed the roof meeting the decklid issue AND resolved the flat nose.

We are working on the various color renderings and finishing the programming of the website to collect orders.

REMINDER: The plan is for the website to collect orders and SHOW a running total until it hits 100. Then the site will consolidate the orders into a single order which will get placed. 3-4 weeks later I will receive the 100+ unit shipment and then break it down to individual orders and ship.
