Space Shuttle Switch Guards
We asked NASA for their Rockwell-designed Space Shuttle titanium switch guards but they wanted $800 each (Your tax dollars at work!)…so we made our own hard-anodized aluminum masterpieces.
1.18" wide, 0.90" X 1.04.They fit the standard 12 mm or 15/32" bushing switches with a key slot.
We supply these Toggle Switch Guards to aerospace and military.
We supply these in a CNC version to NASA (Orion) and the military but no longer offer CNC Guards to the public because of cost. The ones we now sell are precision investment castings (The original Space Shuttle Guards were cast Titanium) from A356-T6 aluminum (same as car alloy wheels and engines). Very rugged and look identical to the originals except they’re aluminum, so they’re 60% lighter. They are finished with a hard anodized coating.
Investment cast hard anodized P/N PDM-005 Price: US$ 8.99 each

Subaru XV tease photo
We understand the tease, we really do. The ability for car makers to get reams of online coverage for every snippet of information they deign to impart ahead of a car launch is powerful. Which is why we have a photo tease for the Subaru XV Crossover ahead of Frankfurt.

The Ceed is the car that changed our perception of Kia, and three years after launch the first model the Korean company designed and built entirely in Europe has been given a mid-life facelift. The new looks are obvious, with revised headlights and a tweaked grille meant to give the Ceed the latest Korean family face seen on the Soul. There are also tweaked rear lights, while new front and rear bumpers make the Ceed 25mm longer than before.

Now admittedly, Chevrolet UK is not starting from a point of market dominance in the UK, but any manufacturer who has managed to increase sales in 2008 is obviously doing something right. Chevrolet UK has announced that in 2008 it managed to increase its market share in the UK by 12.5%, from 0.76% to 0.86%, with total sales for the year of 18,372 cars (which is only a smidge higher than 2007, but the lower total sales for the UK Car market in 2008 meant a significant increase in market share for Chevrolet). Chevrolet Cruze - Launches in the UK in 2009
These are not figures that are going to frighten the pants off Ford and Vauxhall, but they are an indication that a certain part of the car buying public in the UK are looking at price as a major factor, and are prepared to sacrifice a degree of driving joy to get in to a new car at a lower price.
