How about heat/cold cycles? How does it hold up when things get hot/cold?

Tough not to be skeptical, but, I'll giv'em the benefit of the doubt. 

I think "prototype" was used to describe the existing piece to be used for the mold/process.  (It was translation thing)

There is no prototype, see below.  He was in the process of repairing an orig. grille, to use as his "model", to make the mold from.

So what was this?

Sounds like more than a repaired grille was made to me. You can fix an old one all you want and not get that kind of flex out of it.

 shruggy Yeah, you got me on that?  bobfist would have to answer.  I thought it was more in regards to the lost in translation.

On another note, I too will hold all judgement until the final product is revealed.  But, wouldn't it be wise to use a NOS or perfect (non-repaired) piece to start the process off with, considering the cost to make this happen?  If that is indeed how it is made.  Not trying to shed any negativity on this, I don't need this part.  I hope he is successful in producing a top-notch part for anyone who does.

Is this still slated for Monday, May 2nd?  That is right around the corner...next working day in fact.  Definitely keep us updated  2thumbs

If this lines up I could potentially replace the grille as I finally tackle the front valance etc.
