I hope you're aware about welfare state vs socialism differences... It's not like if there are some good public services it must be a socialism lol

I contacted Jim almost as soon as the bankcruptcy was announced and asked if he were willing to license or sell his IP (blueprints/plans for all the cases) to me so I could continue the manufacturing here in Sweden. Apparently another company/person was interested in buying up CaseLabs if I recall correctly but if that fell through Jim would contact me. That's the last I've heard from him and I've tried to contact him on his CaseLabs e-mail in Nov/Dec and then in LinkedIn and Facebook (feeling like a stalker...) now in the end of Feb/beginning of March. It seems like none of his associates from CaseLabs know how to contact him too so I'm out of options now. As far as the bankruptcy goes nothing has been handed in to the USBC (or so I was told by the person at USBC, California district, that I contacted) and I can't see any case on PACER. On my end I have almost everything ready to go (suppliers, manufacturers, painters etc) and could be up and running pretty fast if I were to purchase/license the IP from Jim but right now all I can do is wait.

I hope something good will happen with the brand since the cases were in a league of their own and I wanted to continue that if Jim couldn't.
I like your idea and motivation. Hopefully someone from them will contact you soon. I am also based in Sweden. Let me know how this goes as I will gladly "help" to get this happening.
Like I wrote earlier. I tried to get my hands on some 140.4 radiator mounts without success so I decided to make a model and drawing based on an original radiator mount with some adjustments.

A small local workshop helped me out and made six! 140.4 radiator mounts. They are made by 2mm steel, therefore heavier than the original one.
No Alu available at the workshop at this time and this is for personal use and you can't see the mount anyway so it's okay for me. Original = most left in pic.

I am very impressed what they can do. Very good results.

I see you have cut-outs for the multi-port radiators. Nice

I have a pretty solid grasp of the difference between Socialism and welfare states. I should, having just retired from the US Army in 2013. Not counting my little break in service where I lived in California working for AT&T I served nearly 25 years. During my career I traveled & lived extensively outside of the US. Not turning this thread into a political spectacle because that's not what it's about. Plenty of sites out there for that.

Those look outstanding. OK. Now for the million dollar question? Any chance you can do that with flex bays like the ones for radiator mounts. Much more complicated process but mine looks a little rough and need to be replaced. Specifically a 3 bay like this one.

Shipping from Romania to Texas is no joke. For a 3 and 2 bay flex mount with shipping cost me $282 US. Now about those retention clips. They were out otherwise I would have tacked it onto my order. Anyone know who has any?

Perhaps they charge a standard rate of shipping to the US Because after I placed and confirmed the order with my bank I received the 1st email confirming my order then I received a second email telling me they would refund the extra amount paid for shipping.

Are these the clips you're looking for?

If so, it was @DiGiCiDAL who originally provided the link to them.

Never mind on those retention clips. Dazmode had 2 10 packs left and I just bought the last 2.
