We make the Brera/Spider rear sections in batches of 5 currently, but as we're so busy and they are so labour intensive there isn't going to be much saving to be had. Materials cost will only slightly reduce. There's maybe 10% to be had on a 10-pair batch but they'd all have to be done in one hit to achieve the labour saving (setting up the saw & swager once rather than twice for example). Making them all in one hit means finding somewhere in our schedule where we have a long enough slot of un-booked time to fit them in, and it also means the first person who orders or shows interest might end up waiting a long time until the final person orders and we then build them. I'd be happy to put a few pairs by for stock so say 7 pairs needed to make the batch at a discounted price.
But as it stands now, we have May & June completely booked up, we only really get the odd day here and there when non-Alfa jobs get cancelled or we finish stuff quicker than expected and those days are already filled making cat-back systems. July & August are both pretty much 50% booked up too. We're having a week off in August as well so we'd struggle to fit these in before the back end of summer. Its perhaps not worth the wait for the relatively small saving, but if there are enough people up for it then we'll be happy to do it.
