Here is a photo of the first metal prototypes. They are hard anodised in a bronze colour - which is not how the production one will be. However, I really like the way that the contrast with the etched logo makes the trident really pop. I'm now thinking that perhaps we should go black anodised? What do people think?

Two here please.
Never had one break before and I use the back seat most days, but now I've said that, ones bound too.

Would be good to see how it looks installed!

More prototypes... Unfortunately, whilst the 3-D printed prototype was a perfect fit, the CNC'd prototypes are too loose on the seat lever, so I'll need to modify the programme file and re-try the fit, which will mean a small, further delay.

The good news is that I have negotiated a mix of black anodised and silver aluminium at the same price, so everyone will be able to chose. The final black version will have the laser etching done after the anodising, so that the trident stands out.

That is a proper job - well done

Thank you Stindig looking good. Again thank you for all your efforts on our behalf. We who have struggled with these levers over time will be eternally grateful.
