1/4 glass seals #2, New thread

G'day all. I thought I would start a new thread on this topic so I can stay on top of replies. I have received an email from the suppliers basic saying that they are at least 6-8 weeks away, which I know is a huge pain in the arse for most of us considering how long we have waited. I wish I could post the email up for you all to read as it explains why the delay. Regardless they have said that our order WILL be getting done but cannot give me dates at this stage.
 
if anyone does know ho to put up an email let me know, I do all my posts on iPhone so am a bit limited.
 
thanks for your patience.
Richard.
Can I jump on board please? How much?
Good to hear they still want to do them.
 
are u able to screenshot the email and put it on here as a picture? 
 
If not do you use your emails on your iphone? Should just be able to copy and paste straight from emails whether on the browser or on the app and get it straight on here?
 
we'll get there!
Hi all, I hope this gives you all some answers, it's from Spectrum rubber. Thanks for the tip Matthew, I'm a bit old for all this technology...haha.
 
 
Hi Richard,
 
I apologise for the extensive delays we have had in filling your order, however circumstances beyond my control have prevented us from getting the necessary materials to make these.
 
Our 30 years+ suppliers of the radius bends which are crucial to making this product did, without notice, stop making these and refused to help us in any way with a last order to keep us in stock whilst we made alternative arrangements.
 
I have finally managed to get our dies and our frames back and we have now located another manufacturer who is prepared to try and make the product for us. At this stage we are at least a month away from having the radius bends abut as soon as we have received acceptable off tool samples I will run a production batch and get back in touch with you.
 
These quarter vents are an essential part of our range and we will definitely make them again as soon as we are able to get the radius bends on line.
 
Regards,
 
Christopher C. Redwood 
Chief Executive Officer
 

 
Anything?
Yeah, I'm giving up! Spectrum have gone out of business and the new mob who have taken over are just as shit with communication. Refunds all round so keep your eyes open for msg from me guys. 
 
Sorry that they didn't work out but I guess that's why they're out of business!
you put a lot of effort into this mate I was livin g in hope it may have also lead to kb10 quarters as well at some time but hey thanks for all you hard work
I have been a long time member of the 1200 club but found this site. As I have a coupe this is where I should be.
bugger. should we all call them asking if they make them, so they think they are popular and start pulling their finger out?
Bummer thanks for trying anyway we all really appreciate it!
 
i'll definately give em a call i dont think thats a bad idea Bob.
Calling wouldn't be bad. Best to google spectrum as they have the details of the new company there, although that's what I did and the lazy so and so can't call back either! For me it was like deja vu, new company but no call backs!
If available in Okinawa I can get original rubbers as they have a storerage area somewhere
but I need part numbers and dont know when I will be going next but with the part no I have
a chance as they no longer keep the micro fiches or books.
 
Also any weird things like heater knobs or other perishables pls include numbers when you
can as I can do it all at once.

How deflating.
 
I could have told you that Spectrum and Rarespares are both of the same calibre. Their profiles are shit with most of their rubber either being a poor fit or being completely incorrect in profile and shape............... you may have actually dodged a bullet on this one.
 
I have had better results from Thailand seals than any of the Spectrum/Rarespares variants.
Good effort dix1000. It is a difficult thing to arrange these small quantity, small value orders.
I have a brand new set of 720 quarter window rubbers. They do not fit KB10. Does any body want to come and have a look at them to see if they will fit sedan/ute/wagon?
 
In Sydney.
Chris deflating is the perfect way to sum it up! One way or another we will get something somewhere. Hi Tom, I'm pretty sure the 720 doesn't fit either, the 1000 ones are using an Austin part no for the corner radius which is about right considering they copied a lot of bits!
Darn anyone got codes for the quarter glass seals for Dave?
 
can't find any codes anywhere.
 
Dave the links you sent me for the vb tail lights, would the codes for them be the same as originals or are they remakes? I cant read Japanese and havent worked out the translate thing... Haha Ta.

Hi all. It's got to the point where I'm over it. Refunds will be given to those who have paid. I will pm all ASAP and get it all sorted in the next week. Thanks for all your patience considering how long ago you all paid! Hopefully the mob who took over from spectrum might still try and get some made!
