OH I'm not worried, just sux hearing everyone else getting theirs. I've shipped tons of stuff, I know some things get delayed. After two weeks, I will worry, now it's just annoying.

Got them, also found out why it took so long.




this was in another envelope, packaged by the post office, looks like one of their sorters caught it. The two numbered ones made it home, no sign of my blank one.

Glad it got to you. Another one must have got snagged like that as well, because the PO "repackaged" and mailed me the top left corner of an envelope. Basically just the return address piece. There was no part of the mailing address attached so I don't know whose it was. I'm hoping it still gets to them.

Empty envelope came in the mail today, corner was ripped, no key fobs. Pretty disappointed.

Is it just me or is the etching fadeing abnormally fast?

Mine is still OK and I have it on my keychain, but it does seem shallow now that you mention it. I feel like some of them were deeper, unless it was just my imagination. If the colors wears out from the etching you could probably rub pencil lead in there and it will show up again, I'd think? I know it worked with Curtis' "VR-4" engraved gauge panels.

I bought 2 and one of the fob's definitely are engraved more shallow than the other. No biggy to me, my buddy engrave's at a jeweler, so should be an easy fix for him. I love them still, but can definitely see it getting worse with wear.

Going forward these are going to be blanks-only. It is a huge hassle for me to sort out the right # fobs to the right person, and then have this concern about the depth of the engraving. This is not to dismiss anyone's concerns about the engraving, I'm not really sure what to say about that. Just going to make things easier for myself.

Mine showed up yesterday, I thought for sure it was lost in the mail after 2 weeks. So don't give up hope quite yet.

Polish just got his yesterday, so it may still arrive. If not I will replace them for you. Unfortunately they will be blank '92s but there was no extra charge for engraving so it will have to suffice, if it comes to that. Sorry.

Steve, not a big deal to me. I've still got faith that they will show up. Just got the mail and no FOB, but I've still got a few days before I'll really start to worry about it. If they don't come, blank fobs would be more than acceptable to me, I know a few engravers that could do it for me. I'll keep you updated.

I wasn't meaning to nit pick, I've just had it in my pocket since the day I got it and it seemed that hre numbers were fadeing. I can just run a crayon or pencil over it, as mentioned. I was just curious if it was just me is all.

I forgot to keep up on this project, got caught up with a handful of other things here as of late.

I'm glad to see that Medalcraft came through for you Steve, glad they could get them made up.

Sorry to hear that the engraving wasn't quite exact, I'm pretty sure we used a Triple Line Roman on the dash plaques & Double Line on the fobs.

I'm happy that I was able to provide some key info for this project.
