Not sure if there would be enough market for this with the tooling costs and all..

For example if using injection molding, cost of making a die would prob be around $6000 + wait 2-3 months for die to be developed. Then the manufacturer would have a piece price of maybe $2 per piece and require minimum order of at least 5000. Then, I don't know about the legality. Can you just take Ford's design and sell it? Probably not so you'd have to modify the design a little. But a lot of work involved and might be hard to get a manufacturer on board for such a small project.



Here's what I have so far based on the pics posted in this thread.
