Well boys and girls. I’ve mailed Amy’s lighter off to her. In fact, what I’ve mailed her is the first reproduction from the mold. She was really diggin’ the clear look, so I buffed it up with some “exra-fine” steel wool and shipped it off with a few additional finishing touches. After talking it over with Amy, she’s planning on giving the clear one to Tod for his birthday next week (Aug 3rd). In the meantime, I will try to fix the original and paint it for them. Otherwise, I will paint and ship a second reproduction.
Amy, you have been wonderful throughout this whole process. Even though the mold making turned out to be quite the [highlight] sticky wicket [/highlight] , your spirits never waned.
If anyone else is interested in a reproduction of this lighter case, contact me. It is a limited edition piece, so it’s on a first come first serve basis. The pricing will be as follows:
- $30.00 plus shipping, for the raw (black or white) lighter case only. You can trick this baby out any way you like for yourself!
- $100 plus shipping for a unique finish of your choice. Authentic zippo brand lighter included.
