FAQ
Q: Why is it important for us to sell the fiber glass grilles?
A: We have already made some of the fiber glass grilles because there were many people interested at the beginning, they are currently in stock at our warehouse, we want to sell more of them at least to cover our production costs, moreover we can invest the money from the sales to put into the further production of the carbon fiber grilles as well.

Q: Why buy the fiber glass grille?
A: The fiber glass grille is indeed a very nice product when it is professionally painted and installed, besides it is cheaper, we have also offered a range of very reasonable prices for the group buy. For those who don't want to wait for the carbon fiber grilles, the is a very good deal.

Q: How is the quality of the carbon fiber grille?
A: Our carbon fiber grille is made of high quality grade A real carbon fiber materials, not fake printed pattern, very strong and lightweight, smooth finishing with shiny surface, it is cleared coated with UV protection to prevent color fading, painting is not required. It is combined of 2 layers, the carbon fiber layer on the front and the fiber glass layer on the back to make it a very solid and strong piece, it is exactly like how a carbon fiber hood is constructed.

Q: When will the carbon fiber grilles be ready?
A: It will depend on how serious you guys are interested to order them, it also depends on how good the sales with the fiber glass grilles, if the sales of the fiber glass grilles is good, more likely we will place a special order to custom make more carbon fiber grilles quickly. However the production may take up to 2-3 months, we will do our best to have the products ready, but we do not have a set delivery time until later.

Q: What about there are no serious interests in the group buy?
A: Business is business, in worst case, if there are no serious interests in the group buy, when the offer is expired, the plan will be cancelled, any deposits will be refunded, but transaction fees may apply. You can still contact us later to order the grille at regular price if we do have it in stock, but there will be no more special order.

Q: What about if you are not a member here?
A: We only offer the group buy to the site members only, you can simply sign up as a new member, it take less than 5 mins. We are sharing the community and we appreciate the supports of the members here, in return it is fair if we can bring more new members to this site as well.

Q: How to send the non-refundable deposit or the full payment?
A: To send us the full payment of the Fiber Glass Grille or the non-refundable deposit of the Carbon Fiber Grille, you can use one of the following payment methods:

To send it on the internet:
PayPal (send payment to: cmod05@yahoo.ca).

To send it in the mail:
Further payment instructions and mailing address will be given later.

You must add this information in the payment:

Hi Matrix Owners,

Good news! We finally have the group buy ready, this is a special offer exclusively to the members on this site only!

For those who does not know about the story, say we were contacted by some of the members here and we had been told that many of you were interested in a nice aftermarket grille for your Matrix, as there are not many other options in the market unless the expensive TRD grille, so we said we would make it. It has been a fun project and we have been working hard to make this grille possible with some helps of a few great members here during the production, we don't have to tell you who, LOL! It takes us a while to finish the product because we want to make a good product, and it is ready for sales.

As you can see, this is a group buy, the final price of each grille will be based on how many people are interested to order, very simple, if there are more people buying the grilles, the price will go lower.

Furthermore, we are glad that many people seem to like our carbon fiber grille a lot, however as we mentioned before, we have only custom made a few of them for the members who have been helping us during the production, those are only limited edition grilles and we were not planing to make more to release to the public market, because we still have many of the fiber glass grilles in stock, however due to the demands, we would make an exception and we would consider making more carbon fiber grilles exclusively to the members on this site, please note that the offer will be expired in 30 days, so take this chance of you want a nice grille for your Matrix.

Go and sign up the group buy list, please show us some supports!

Thanks!

C-mod
