Some kind of carpenter you are !  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Just kidding my friend. The mistake lies in this:

" = inch
' = feet

So you meant 20' instead of 20" Cheesy

and

1 foot = 12 inch.

Stupid imperial system.       Grin Wink  Only 1 country in the world still use it....

I just checked the width of the T-molding on my Japanese built cab and it's exactly 15 mm. so that's fine.

The order is final at 120 feet.

Not bad at all after a slow start. Gonna be a pretty hefty package though Wink

I'll let you guys know the definite price as soon as I get it from Bill. He will have to look into the shipping price and manufacturers final price.

Nice one for my XP laptop though ! Cheesy

Well luckily the structure of the Nintendo T-molding is so that it is very little mass compared to the regular stuff.

Incidentally I noticed yesterday that my (bootleg) Puckman has a similar flat structure T-molding, but then in black. Bet I'm not going to find that stuff though....Hope a US sized T-molding will fit....

Bill just e-mailed me with an update and some extra info:

Took some more photos of the sample material and updated the pre-order
page. Some decent photos. Now, I saw your thread at your dragon lair
forum and this is not as shinny as the original (more satin). Just
wanted to make sure you guys know this before we ship this overseas.

20' = less than 1lb... So, 5-6 lbs... So, 120 feet isn't that heavy.


So, do not expect the "shine" to be a 100% match. As Bill writes on his site:
4) Satin finish (not semi-gloss because they cannot do semi-gloss in flexible PVC)

Anyway, I'm sure it will still look 10 times better than the "bulby" alternative.

Bill also made some more pics:






Look at Bill's page for some good tips on installation !!!!!!

I strongly recommend not installing the super flat more flexible T-molding with that!!! haa haa. Won't dent. But you might find it following a profile you would find undesirable.

haa haa.
