Fender covers - Any interest?

Hello folks!

As some of you might remember, we had a discussion at one point, about getting m-shop fender covers.
I may have a line on some, and the price should be very "right".

Biggest question is: What do we want on them?

1.) "mercedesshop.com" at the middle or bottom of the cover

2.)The standard wrench logo at the top of the page?

3.)The "compressed" logo, as found on those cool grill badges?

I would have to get written permission from m-shop to use the logo - but for now, I am just trying to get an idea as to what people are looking for, and then I can get a better idea on pricing - which I know will influence some people's purchase decision.

I'm interested in Option #2* and would want to have one for each fender.




*Although I'll end up being in on whatever works out.

Protecting my wagon's fenders with covers that proudly display where I learn how to fix it is inspiring on multiple levels.

Keeping the logo as it appears on the forum will appeal to my artistic integrity (or forum loyalty).

Well...the wrench is at the top of this page (next to the tabs)

The grill badge thread, with pic of badge proof is here:Mercedesshop Grill badges now avaliable!

The script would most likely be in italics. mercedesshop.com Something like that, anyway.



For now, I would like to get an idea as to how many need to be made - then I will most likely increase that amount, pass on the info, and get a price.

I bailed on it since all of the suppliers I contacted wanted a minimum of 1k sets


I was going to say get some off griots and get them embroidered


Bill gave me permission to use the logo so I would contact him again if you want to head this.

I was going to say whats the price? We can probably get them from Griots, might even cut us a bit of a break if we order a bunch of them at the same time.

Don't forget to leave a bit in their for your time.

I'd like to know the price, too. And I agree with Hattie - leave yourself a bit for your trouble and time.

Anyway.... I looked at the covers on Griot's, and I am thinking that what I can get is similar to the custom cover (the kind you can customize with print), that is made out of some kind of foam rubber - at least it looks that way. However, I am hoping that the price would be way less - I still have yet to hear about pricing -so don't make any bets just yet.

No MB logo but awesome day in and day out performance: Model RLB-H. Removeable launderable liner. They never fall off. Steel or aluminum fenders. Double protection over the fender crown. Comfortable. Full engine bay access. Fold up for easy storage.
