Now this is something that would be worth making sure the club knows where it ends up (the mould for the windscreens that is):

How this hasn't surfaced in my regular scan of eBay who knows.

We should try and make sure the club gets a hold of the windscreen mould.

DataFarmer:
I saw this as wel and I'm watching it at the moment. Are you located closer to Brisbane than I am in Melbourne?
I really only wanted the Windscreen and Mould (Windscreen for a spare for me, and Mould for Club).

Perhaps we could come to an arrangement rather than bidding against each other Smiley

Can I just add that a Sports screen can be had for $284 (and that's landed in SA) by the currnet supplier.
Worth keeping in mind.
I was watching this too, but will refrain from bidding. Don't want or see the need for a bidding war between ourselves with the same end in mind.
I have a screen on order at the moment.
There is some history on these.

Thanks Phil for that info re cost of these screens at todays cost.

With that in mind as has been stated we dont want a bidding war between members  laugh ( except at Bathurst in the auctions ) Grin

Allan only produced approx 60 SPORTS so the screens are not that much of demand.
Orginally this mould was made to produce screens for a member to sell screens to other who had SPORTS,
he needed 10 orders before the windscreen manufacturer would begin to make them so even from the start it was going to be an expensive way off doing it.

So even with the mould today I would guess that the manufacturer would require approx the same numbers of windscreens ordered before they would make them again.
With that in thought they would cost to make $$$ anyones guess until we had the numbers to order
but from memory when this was first done they were more than twice the price of what Phil has put up on the website today.

So please consider that before thinking this is the best option as the club cannot make just one screen at a time for you and we would not make up 10 screens just to have them lying around when they can be purchased for less than $300 today from a windscreen manufacturer.

That being said goodluck to who ever gets them and yes we would love to get the mould from the purchaser if possible for the future use of the members if possible.

Regards

Hello Everyone:
I was the winning bidder for these items and Bruce Key has kindly collected them for me to Bring  to Bathurst
Unfortunately due to our House Builder (Post Black Saturday Bushfires) going into Administration/Liquidation today, I'm not going to be able to attend the National Meet.

Personally I wanted a Single Screen, and the Mould just for "safe keeping" for the benefit of everyone in the club in case stock/supply at Moran Glass in Sydney dried up.
I'm happy to "donate" the mould to the club if someone wants to take that item.

If someone from Victoria was heading up and had room for another Windscreen, I'd be greatly appreciated to collect down the track.

Regards
Heath
