I have finally received the news that I have been waiting for. Our tooling partner tested the mold successfully. This is what they told me: "the tool is running well and is filling the part easily".
I added this image to show you how I really feel about this tooling news flash.
They are going to add some more ribbing and we still have to complete the tools for the caps/plugs to conceal the screw heads and to make the little face-plates. We are getting really close to production.
Here are some images of the test shots. No color added. (without ribbing)
thank you all for the support,
