Hey Guys I have contacted Lotex directly and spoke with their contact person there and they do still offer the grey (Graphite) to match our interiors. With that being said is anyone interested in starting a group purchase with their company to get us a better deal.

Use coupon code ISSCLUB15 in the redeem coupon box. It expires on Jan 21st, 2013. But try to get everyone to order in the next couple of days. We will then be able to order a press run later this week.

Best Regards,

Dennis

So here is who I currently have committed to going ahead with the GP:
1.) Chris96Coprice
2.) jking1118
3.) subssonicimpalass
4.) streetcar2try
5.) Narc 9c1
6.) Johner
7.)Bigdawg70
8.KOOPA
9.)The Lazy Destroyer
10.)DirtyHarry
11.)dustpanda
12.) waynes91
13.)flasheroo


Current Pricing
Impala SS | 3 pod/ 2" / full pillar | '94-'96 | Picture | $44.99
Color:Unpainted (Gloss Black)
Graphite (Add $7.99)


Here is the Email I received from Dennis today at Lotex
Chris:

For a group purchase we will have to do a press run of 20 units. We can do this if you can get a group of at least 10 together. Once you get the guys together we will issue a discount coupon code worth 15% off when you purchase at our web site. They can choose either the unpainted or painted when ordering. The code will be good for 7 days. At that point, when we get the 10 orders, we will schedule a production run. It will take approx 2 weeks until we can manufacture and ship them.

Let me know if you can make it work.
Best Regards,

Dennis

I would be in for a Black one if someone could get one going. All 3 are for 2" or 2-1/16" gages, right? Not two 2's and one 2-5/8".

I would be in for one in Gray pending final price. do you know if this is the type that replaces the entire stock A-Pillar and if it mounts as the stock pillar does?

I'm thinking of adding a tranny temp and vacuum gauge but not sure what 3rd gauge I would need. Do they also offer a 2 pod pillar? If you are not sure, I will follow up with them as things progress here, but may still get a 3 pod unit.

OK, so if my calculator is right, 44.95 + 7.99 for gray - 15% = 45.00 + shipping...??????????

Sound about right?


4DOORSS, according to their pic on their website, it is the whole pillar.

Will they let us mix and match the painted vs. non-painted for the 10, or do they all need to be one way or the other?

I am in, just prefer black, but if it has to be the grey, that will just be a little more black SEM. :)

They can be either black or grey.

I am concerned about the grey so I am going to get the unpainted black and SEM it anyways so it matches everything, because I also plan to grab a junk yard A pillar in any color and match it SEM medium Gray 15393.

So my theory is I have to paint the pillar SEM so I might as well save the $7.99 and put it toward the $13 dollar can of SEM that I need anyways do it all in one color and all in one shot!

I saw their picture on the website and it looks to be the full pillar, but you never know it may be listed incorrectly. In any case, I would still like to see how these mount. do they use the same style clips as factory or do they just tape or screw on? Not crazy about one that has to be taped on.

I'm still considering just putting 2 gauges on the dash bezel. I've seen some who have done that too and it looks pretty good. Still interested in this pillar and for $45, I'm not out that much and I would guess I could always sell it.

It is the whole pillar, and Normal Pricing for the Gray turns out to be 52.98 +10.05 shipping and is 63.03 total <<<<thats not minus the 15%


So it would be well worth it for both colors to be honest.........So far we have 5 committed it looks like...COMMON 5 more guys!!

Don't decuct any %'s from shipping.

According to your calcs, it's $45.03 with the discount + the shipping. So $55.08.

It would be $53.58 your way. and they probably won't do it that way. shipping is always a flat rate. It's how business works.

I want one so I can have my left & right widebands and another of whatever. My Tach, Oil press, Temp & N2O gauges are under the cowl induction in cups.

Chris, thanks for putting this together, but I'm going to pass. I contacted them to get a better idea of how these mount and won't work for what I have in mind.

He says this color is a match to stock, however I would just get the unpainted and just SEM it as I stated before
