Replacement early type Argosy front valances
Not wishing to detract from Brad's thread on his 20ft rebuild and the thread on his valance repairs, but this morning he dropped off his front valance at a fiberglass molding/fabrication company.
The company is going to take a reverse mold from his valance, which can then be used as a plug for replacement front valances for the early (round light, 1974-76) Argosy motorhomes (and we get the added bonus that Brad's valance is the unique 'with air scoop' design).
Assuming this goes OK, we are going to initially get a couple of new, fiberglass (rather than the original ABS), front valances made.
We will have the mold available, if others want to get a valance made in the future (and the company making the molds is happy to make future units), but I thought appropriate to reach out and see if anyone needs a valance now and wants to add to the initial order?
The initial cast is going to cost approx $1700, with each 'print' in the order of $700 (these prices could change although the company is stressing not hugely), obviously plus shipping. For those adding to the initial order, the cost would just be the cost of manufacture of their part (plus shipping) - I'm not looking to get the cost of the cast back at this point (maybe those 'using it' in future could make a contribution)
