NOTE: Glad you guys like rings. BTW, for some reason I received 3 orders from 3 different countries(non military). I refunded all of those, but unless you want one just for the sake of having one, these will all have the 740 specific to US market only.

All orders just shipped out via USPS today. Thanks guys!

Orders still trickling in. I have about 1/2 dozen 3 set(indented gloss, raised gloss and matte raised) still available. I will then order some more of the matte and glossy raised for those interested. Let me know....

All orders shipped out via USPS yesterday. Thanks guys!!

Glad everyone who has ordered/received the rings is happy with them. I think the orange ring looks like it belongs in the car so much that I can't imagine going back to the plain OEM silver one.

All orders have shipped, any orders that come in will ship out this Monday like usual. Thanks Again!

I have had mine sitting for almost a month. Still have not gotten around to installing it nor have I hardwired the V1 yet. I think it is because I dread having to do any work in the garage in the AZ 100+ degree heat...lol. I will be sure to follow the DIY hopefully sooner than later.

Thanks for the overwhelming support of this project! All orders will ship out on Monday!

ALSO:

Considering doing a very small run of the full text matte starter trim in YELLOW for Powerbeasts DY 1M. Let me know if anyone else is interested.

It might look good if you had this steering wheel in the car.....

hey Metak,
got around to doing the swap and it was a pretty easy DIY.
I went w the gloss raised version (originally thought I'd like the matte finish) but after mounting, the contrast between the interior (matte) and the gloss just gives it more emphasis... plus my car is BSM... always shiny, with 50% tinted glass, I can spot the ring from a considerable distance outside the car and the glossy finish helps this along.
thanks for your help!

Yeah only 15% of the total 1M's in the US have ordered the rings, however about 1/3 of the forum members got them in their cars.

So just use the novisad242@yahoo.com PayPal from the For Sale thread. Thanks!

Maybe I should have been more specific. 1/3 of the registered 1M forum members have purchased the orange ring.
