    So let me know what you guys think.

    Wow, the only thing that could make this better is if you had used the "V" logo as opposed to the cadillac logo

I believe they were somewhere on the order of $5 each, and the tooling and setup were somewhere a little bit north of $10k. We got a couple thousand of them. The setup costs would be much lower for this application, just two molds, front and back would have to be made. Which would be, I am guessing around $5k. But the minimum qty would be 5000 pcs of each, front and back. We would not have to worry about Delphi's permission, because we would be making a completely new mold. The only issue would be putting the Cadillac logos on for copyright infringement. That is why I was thinking adhesive emblems to be applied by the end user.

    It still is not going to happen, at least by me. I just don't have the capitol for it. And I AM NOT going to do prepayment. I do not believe in that.
    So are you saying it's $15K to make this happen?
    If so, would 30 investors at $500 each get the ball rolling?

    Yeah, but who is gonna pay $500 for two remotes. I am not looking to make a business out of this. I was hoping it was something that could be done on the cheap. I am still waiting to here from my China guy, but he is not optimistic, nor am I.

    $500 for 2 remotes?
    I thought $500 would get 100+ remotes which could then be sold, netting about a 3K profit.

    After all this hype, it seems a shame to let it die just because of some upfront costs that must have been known about in advance.
