Re: New keyless Entry remotes?
I'm with Mystical on that one- maybe 4 symmetrical square buttons that overlay the current circuit board locations?
As far as the Cadillac logo, while I'd prefer a V I think we'll have to settle for Cadillac. Why? The supplier will probably have a minimum amount that needs to be ordered, and I doubt Jimmy could sell that many to ONLY V owners. If it says "Cadillac", he can sell to every forum.
This is a great idea. I'd be in for 2 for sure!! Can't believe that GM didn't but in design effort into the original fobs. I'm driving a H3 while the dealer puts a new tranny in my V and it has the same kind of generic fob.
On the buttons; I was not planning on getting new buttons made; only the outer shell, you would reuse the board and the rubber button pad
On the logos: I would be planning on the Cadillac script and the logo crest being some kind of stickers, that the end user would apply himself. To avoid any hassles with GM, I would sell only the casing; a sticker sheet would be available at "no charge" at the request of the buyer. I was thinking Cadillac, Buick, Pontiac etc logos for the back, and the names for the front all on one sticker sheet (the V logo could be included also.) Dont worry, I would find a source for high quality stickers. Maybe Goth could do it? I will worry about that after I have the casing worked out.
This is not a sure thing yet anyway. I am waiting on my China supplier to see what pricing is going to look like. If tooling is too much, I wont have the finances to fund this.
It's more complicated than that. The tooling costs could be upward of $5000. Maybe more. I just have to find out. That is why I am trying to keep it as simple as possible.
And I am not comfortable taking money up front for something that may not happen. I have a paypal seller account, but to do anything here I would want be an authorized vendor first, and I don't want to spend money on anything until I have a sure thing. I am not much of a business man. I am just doing this because I have the skills, I have the sources, there seems to be interest, and I hate the gm fob too
