Injection Molded Center Console Tray WITH Change Holder Thread (MK3 Focus)

**FINAL UPDATE**
If you are reading this, sadly the project did not reach its funding goal and there is no way to get this manufactured. If you like the idea of a center console tray (and you have 2012 model Focus), I recommend buying the OEM part. I was a good learning experience for me and something I'll definitely carry with me.


**UPDATE MAR 8, 2013**
Project is Now LIVE until MAR 31, 2013, please see below on how to back this project for as low as $20 (black tray shipped to you).



This project is running from March 3-31, 2013. If after March 31, 2013 the project has not reached its goal ($22,000 raised), the project is cancelled and we will not have another chance at an alternative console tray.

On Indiegogo, you back the project securely using Paypal (you don't need to make an Indiegogo account). You can also not use paypal and pay by credit card. You will be charged immediately when you back the project but then if the project does not reach its goal, you will receive a FULL REFUND. Also when you back a project, you can choose to be anonymous on the project page.

It is better to back the project sooner because these projects will get featured on the main page if they are getting a lot of backers, thus leading to more chances of further funding. Also, it can gain the attention of local newspapers who may run the story and thus we get more exposure. They ran a story for this other Indiegogo project when it reach $6000 in funding.

How To Back Project
Step 1: Click this link http://igg.me/at/TRES/x/2498758
Step 2: You should now be on the project page. Scroll down and click the correct perk on the right. You should click "Early Bird Special" where you will be mailed 1 black tray for $20 (US and Canada) or $25 (International, any country other than US and Canada).


Step 3: Enter Your email Address and click Continue
Step 4: Fill Out Your Shipping Information and then Click Paypal button
Step 5: You'll be redirected to Paypal. Either sign in with your Paypal account or enter your credit card info and press continue
Step 6: You will be charged immediately, and on the next page, you can choose whether to be anonymous or display your name and contribution on the project page.
Step 7: Spread the word.
Step 8: March 31: 11:59PM. If Project reaches $22,000 in funding or more, money will transfer to me and I'll pay supplier who will immediately begin making the mould. If Project does not reach $22,000, receive a FULL refund in 3-5 days (in original payment method).

**UPDATE: MAR 04, 2013**

PROJECT IS NOW LIVE! GOGOGO! via INDIEGOGO

**UPDATE: MAR 03, 2013**

FAQ (Feel free to send me more questions)

Q: What color will the tray be?
A: The tray will be black. Supplier has the capabilities for more colors, for example to match with your Car's exterior color, but expect a premium if this option is even do-able (will need a certain order quantity).

Q: How long will this project take?
A: If everything goes according to plan, I should be able to mail you the part approx. 3 months after receiving the required capital in order to start the project. Expect the product to ship in July 2013.

Q: How can I help to "support" this project?
A: Your help will be critical to this initiative's success. Try to spread the word so that more people know about this. Remember, we need to have at least 1000 people interested in order to have a chance at catching the supplier's interest.

Q: Are the models you posted the "final design"?
A: No, everything is still a work in progress. I can already tell you some parts will be changed to make it injection "moldable". But the functionality will remain very comparable.

Q: I want a "textured" tray surface just like the OEM, can you make it happen?
A: Yes, I want the final design to have a "textured" surface finish. This will make the products you put in the tray more slip-resistant and also dampen noise.

Q: I own a business and would be interested in buying in bulk.
A: Please PM me.

Q: What exactly is enough interest to make this project a go?
A: Obviously not every Focus owner browses these forums. If we get 100+ positive votes, I think that'll be enough to at least start the kickstarter/indiegogo project.

Q: Will you be using Kickstarter or Indiegogo?
A: Kickstarter requires the person starting a project to be American or at least have an American friend so they can use the Amazon Payments system. Since I am Canadian, my only option right now is to go with a site that supports Canadian project starters, such as Indiegogo.
