This is a good time to take a look at the spreadsheet and make sure there are no discrepancies! Please take a look! I'm waiting to hear from them so I can place the final order.

There is an easy way to tell the original from the replica. The original has a crappy bent piece of metal excuse for a clip that holds the badge to the main ring. Looks like the replica has a proper ring so it won't fall off like the original. Almost lost my original a few times because of it.

Looks like the main difference between them as far as appearance goes is the old one has been beating around in a pocket full of change for 18 years and the Replicas are off the shelf new. Let's revisit this thread in 15 years and put an old and new side by side and see what we got. Of course that means someone needs to take an original beat up fob and keep it in 18 year old beat up pristine condition until that time comes so probably not gonna happen.

I am big into recycling though and if your not into sacrifice or burnt offerings, you may want to stick with 93 octane.

Can't wait to see the engraving font. I hope it's more like original than the VR-4 font.
Either way, it'll be cool to have an original appearing flob.

You can never have too much power or go too fast,just to much throttle at the wrong time.

You guys can really just post up if I've got something wrong. I'm not making a checklist of everyone who confirmed things were correct.

If you've paid for blanks up front, you are guaranteed to get them. I also ordered a bunch of extra blanks in '91 and '92 styles, so I will hopefully have enough to meet the "oh shit" orders afterwards. But, again, if you paid up front and requested blanks, your order will be filled for sure.

I just sent in the order. I asked for an idea on the timeframe, and also will be making payment as soon as they call me about it.

I wish they had copied the "VR4" portion more exactly, as it is the same as the badges on the 1991s.

Still, they look good.

I actually prefer them slightly different than the original. In the future we can differentiate between genuine and replica fobs. Last thing we want is people flooding the market with FOBs they claim to be the real thing.

I emailed them about the small issues that some are concerned with. I don't know if these things can be addressed, but I feel obligated to ask on you guys' behalf. I would definitely not refer to anyone involved as "beggars" especially those who helped get this rolling.

I can still add to the order if anyone is interested.

Thanks.

As I mentioned in my post about the differences, I think it's good that these have some differences, as the originals will still be able to be identified. There is nothing "unappealing" about the differences in my opinion - they are just minor differences.

I say keep the ball rolling.

Yep, they just wrote back and since a die was created already, I would have to have another die created from scratch to incorporate any changes. I appreciate everyone's input, and I resisted my initial feeling which was "too bad, its good enough for me" because that really isn't fair. But since any changes will require starting over, I'm going to proceed with the design as-is.

I did email them because the hole punched in the sample fob was a bit off-center, and that has been addressed. I have also received a picture of the font they plan on using, and I have expressed a concern that it seems to be more of a 'solid' font whereas the originals have a double line look. I will update with their response to that inquiry.

At the end of it all, you cant satisfy everyone, you and a handful of others did get the ball rolling but some need to understand that if they dont like it, then dont buy it, im not trying to be an asshole but i am being real.
