Greetings Club Members,

Pettit Racing's RX-8 Rotor Shaped Radio **** GROUP BUY Authorized & Approved by Omicron.

***********************************
The Offering:
Minimum of 25 units must be ordered.
1 **** purchase - (Group Buy Price: $25 USD shipped/done) / (Retail: $29.99 + $4.50 shipping)
Canadian orders will be honored at this price. Other countries please PM for confirmation.

The Method:
Once the member pays, I will fulfill the order and ship 1st Class / Delivery Confirmation (2/3 Days Delivery - so says USPS).

The Product:
The Radio **** is a direct snap-on replacement. It requires no tools and takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish. The back-light holes shown in the night images are being light from the radio units lighting and therefore; NO WIREING is required.

Special Thanks to glassetcher for these images.
Please Note: The ***** now ship with the new CF-like sticker as seen in the **** Only image. The images of the **** on the radio are the old CF-like sticker insert.

Yup, there is, and I'm sure if there were other RX-8 sites you'd probably find it there too. The smart vendors diversify and try to catch every potential buyer, and considering we're 23,000 members to their 2,200 is makes sense you'd see it here too, doesn't it?

Vice Grip...so no one is confused, only the first picture is correct

the following pictures are with the older sticker logo, they do not produce this version anymore

the newer 'sticker' has a raised finish (first picture)

Also I recommend posting pics of of the ****'s non-rotary section painted in black (DIY job)...it looks stellar that way...I'll try to post a pic for you (it highlights the rotor symbol while the the rest of the **** blends into the HU facia much better).

I can delete this post if you want once these things are addressed

Looks great what is the installation like, is it a cover or a shaft type piece similar to the AC controls?

Fair enough!
Correctly yes... The 1st image is the new stick on decal. The following 3 images are the old decal. There were posted to show how the **** looks mounted in place on the radio.
I will photochop those images to have the correct look.

Painting the non Rotor edges does look good too. If you did that to yours... why don't you go ahead and post the materials you used to complete the Job or a link to the DIY?
I have no objections and see no reason for you to delete your post.

To answer RL8's Question:
The **** has Mylar/Epoxy filled holes and the illumination is the back light from the radio lighting so there is NO WIREING required. The whole install takes less than 5 minutes!

Thanks,
Dan

Pull OEM Stock **** off.
Rotor **** comes with its own "D" ring supplied in bag.
Position Decal on ****.
Place "D" ring in **** shaft recess.
Push new **** on radio pin shaft.
Use steering wheel controls so you don't have to twist the rotor upside down!

The only reason I mentioned the other site is because there are almost 25 purchases over there and I am ready to get my **** so I hoped some people would go there to sign up so the first delivery would ship. I didn't mean to offend anyone.

Out of fairness to everyone, and if Omicron will Authorize, I will combine the total count for required hits to make the GB go forward. If we do this please do not double post. One post in one or the other.

We will keep the GB's separate for respects sake, but we will manage the numbers internally.
