I wanted to provide some information regarding the manufacturing process and the next set of units. I spoke with the manufacturer yesterday and was informed that 1900 units are currently being plated with an estimated ship date of 3/15/14. We have another 1800 units that are currently being polished with an estimated ship date of 3/25/14. Here are a couple pictures from the shop demonstrating the polishing process:
The black coated units are also progressing on schedule. The manufacturer straightened out the coating issues and is getting better results now. I hope to have the units in hand and ready to ship out to the backers by the end of March as stated in the previous update.
