    Looks like were starting to get some traction, thanks to all who have responded with interest. Maybe we can get others to chime in and
    Opelspenner to begin production. It appears he doesn't get on this forum very often, so I'm hopeful when he does, he will see there is
    enough interest to go forward.

    From what I have read, it appears everyone that purchased earlier versions of the transmission pans have thoroughly enjoyed them.
    Those of us that don't have one, would greatly benefit by getting one. So lets keep the interest going.

    Not getting on here much is an understatement! I’m going to do another run for sure, will try to get the ball rolling in the next few weeks! As I was under the car again I still don’t see the benefit to “front jacking” vs rear jacking when lifting it to get under the trans to drain the fluid... so I’m still on the fence as to if/where to move the drain plug. Ballpark price should be about the same but material cost can certainly vary from run to run

    Awesome, glad to hear that. I like the looks of the last one you produced. Whether you leave the plug or move it to the corner, I'm good either way.

    Some changes for this revision I'm considering:
    1. Moving Drain plug - I'm back and forth on this one. Wouldn't it make sense to place is far FORWARD? This way to drain you could easily just jack up the rear of the car via under the diff and with jack stands putting tipping the overall pitch of the car towards the front. Unless you have a lift or a pit I don't know an easier way to get under there
    2. Creating an enclosed pocket for the detent spring/cap
    3. Different color? will probably add some branding too, maybe a nice opel logo (they won't sue me for that will they?)
    4. I could massage the inner floor to pitch it towards the drain plug but i'm worried this would add considerable machining time and therefor $$$

    I'll probably do a batch of 10 again for Gen3, and I do still have one Gen2 (what everyone on here got) left that I kept for posterity

    I'm not officially taking orders yet, just gaging feedback from those who have one already. I'll probably end up selling them on eBay too
    Count me in for one. Will send $ and address upon confirmation of the run. Thanks! Marc
