available only to calaisturbo.com.au


is a new name from a familiar face, or should I say username ISL33P

Coming from the same single person who has been a contributor and sponsor of ct.com.au for close to a combined 10 years and priding myself on the two most important things being customer service and end quality of the finished product is establishing a new business to fabricate a massive range of straight bolt in or completely customised products to fit your car.

Combining some 7+ years of manifold fabrication and a growing demand from customers for other products made to the same high standards comes a massive range of direct replacement or completely customised parts.

Pricing is as follows:

Standard replacement parts

Fuse box cover - $140
Fuse box replacement catch can - $200 (all with original K&N air filter)
Power steering bottle $110 (length is optional at no extra charge)
Wiper bottle replacement $150 (uses standard wiper motor)
Overflow bottle replacement $160 (comes with fittings for factory hoses)
Under car surge tank - $300
Radiator cover - from $140. They can be made to go all the way over the fan shroud but that will be extra - pics of this coming shortly.
B&M shifter adaptor - $140 exchange (pics on page 4)


Surge tanks - all available with either push on or AN fittings sizes of your choice

1 litre single outlet - $120 (only available with single outlet)
2.5 litre single outlet - $130
2.5 litre twin outlet - $150
4.5 litre twin outlet - $200


Catch cans from $200 including original K&N air filter. Your imagination for its placement is the only limitation. Can be put, along the chassis rail, under the battery or standard airbox, down low behind the radiator, inner wheel arches....the list goes on. Can include baffles, oil drain/return

Airboxes from $300. Commonly mounted in the original position. They can be fitted with a bellmouth both prior to the turbo inlet pipe and also on the end of the intake pipe for the airbox which is feed from behind the bumper bar - have a look at the pic below for the one I done for a twin turbo R33 GTR

Fuel cell and tanks starting from $700 with all weld on fittings required and lid - can add custom made mounts and fuel level sender

Intercoolers with internal deflectors for more efficient use of the complete full core from $1000 - can modify existing intercooler from $350, yes even the chinese ones

Triple flow radiators from $900

Delivery is additional and times may vary - Polishing starts at $35 per unit

Any questions on products, pricing or specs, please pm me, I am more than happy to offer help or advise regarding any of these products.

Cheers,
Ariel

Finally got the first batch finished today.

It is pretty much a complete package for a single customer, combining direct replacement, being the fuse box cover (pic 1 left to right), wiper bottle (pic 2), power steering bottle (pic 3) and custom made parts coolant overflow (pic 4) and catch can (pic 5) which sit behind the headlights which also helps with the hiding of wiring.

As you can tell these are in a completely raw finish as they were welded. All of these are actually going off to the polisher on Monday so I will have pics of them polished hopefully by mid week, fingers crossed. I will also be making them available in a swirl or scotch brite finish aswell as the raw or polished finish.

For this same customer has also asked me to make a radiator cover and a scuttle panel cover....the last one being a bit of a mission but a very nice way of finishing off the engine bay.

Something which I have been asked a lot for is the fuse box replacement catch can (pic 6).

Anyway, enough of me typing, I will let the pictures do the talking. I am just trying to finalise the pricing on these items and when I have I will let you all know.

In the meantime, I am happy to take any questions on these or any other customer made products you may need.

Cheers,
Ariel

Good Stuff Ariel, you still making plenums? I will get one, one of these days haha

RedStarFab
16-07-11, 20:24
Thanks Brad, yeah the plenums will not be going away there is still plenty of demand for them. I am just now in a position to almost everything and anything from home after splurging on some more machinery.

Are you still doing the ca? Reason why I ask is because I am after a car to "sponsor" which will be smeared over the internet, magazines and events.

Also, here is a couple of pics of a surge tank I made recently. Looking at giving these away for FREE for anyone purchasing a package of parts similar to those pictured above. These will be available with either push on or AN thread fittings with single or twin pump outlets.

Ariel u will definatly be a busy man once word gets around. ur work is always A1 keep it up man

RedStarFab
21-07-11, 21:37
Thank you gents, let's just hope it all goes well.

I have worked my a55 to build a good, reputable brand with proven results and a quality end product and this is just an extension of that.

ADICTIV - yes it will be the full length. There will be plenty of pics when I finish the first one shortly.

I will hopefully have a radiator cover done and I have also been asked to replicate the factory fan shroud so they should work well together. This thread will be flooded with with pics so people can see the work and detail that goes into the work.

Cheers,
Ariel

Prices

RedStarFab
22-07-11, 19:42
MuFFiN - of course I have just started by adertising on this site only and the word will spread. Plenty of non-VL owners look at this site so hopefully it picks up from there.

bibbs - I am just finalising the pricing at the moment. I will update the first post once I have. It should be all done over the weekend.

Anyone can pm me for pricing if you are interested in anything in particular, I already have a couple of orders for custom made parts.

Cheers,
Ariel

do u make vl washer bottles ? how much if so

Nukz
26-07-11, 19:49
If the quality of this gear is like that of your plenums (which I'm certain it is), then these parts are second to none. Goodluck with the business venture mate

RedStarFab
26-07-11, 21:20
No worries at all Althoats :-) I will add it to the list for when the car is getting everything else done here......what's another thing to the ever growing list lol

Wiper (washer) bottle is $150 plus delivery

Thanks Nukz :-)

Hahaa thats not my car, thats joels! i have a silo that is copping a 26/30 but will be getting alot of your goodies aswell, but im very interested on a drop tank for my 31

RedStarFab
27-07-11, 13:04
How many 31's are there in wagga??? Had me confused. Yeah, that's definitely something I can do. Give me a call when you can, easier to talk about stuff like that instead of pm/sms's back and forth.

Yes, there a direct replacement

invlhvn
27-07-11, 14:27
is that the washer bottle thats in the second picture ? are their two sides of it that sit on each end of the strut tops ?

RedStarFab
27-07-11, 18:24
Yes it is. The factory one has only one mount on the strut tower and this is where you need to drill the hole, that is all that is required. It wasn't done in that photo, but there is no a hole in that one for the standard wiper motor to fit.

DeVL
08-08-11, 23:02
hey dude im after a alloly coolant bleed tank with a washer fluid tank built in with it and i want it pritty much the same design of the washer fluid part of a standard coolant/washer fluid tank on a vl turbo and if you can using braided lines and fittings get back to me with a price.


Cheers peter.

I will give you abuzz to talk about price just to make sure I understand exactly what you are after?

hey mate how much for the catch can

RedStarFab
14-08-11, 15:46
Do you mean the fuse box replacement one? They are $200 with K&N air filter + delivery

vllicious
14-08-11, 19:56
What size fuel cells are you doing? And prices for sizes. :)

RedStarFab
14-08-11, 20:26
Really any size you like. You can go for the basic style cell from about $550 or like one guy is doing, a complete replacement of the standard tank with internal baffles and surge tank. The beauty of it all is that I can make it to suit whatever you want, exactly the way you want and not like everyone else out there.

DeVL
15-08-11, 22:43
Hey Ari hows my stuff coming along?

they usually take a couple of weeks since everything is made to order, but lucky for you I was making another power steering canister, so I thought, what the hell, I 'll make another one. I might have the washer/coolant bottle done this weekend.

got pictures of the radiator covers mate?

RedStarFab
16-08-11, 10:29
I am getting one done at the moment, as soon as it is done I will put some pics up

DeVL
16-08-11, 21:06
Typo lol..... No worrys dude theres no rush. Hey i was thinking about it today where are you going to put the coolant lines? Im only asking because of the brake booster and what not its realy a tight area give us a ring or what ever my phones always on bro.

Also please use black and silver fittings on the power steering bottle and the coolant tank.

Thanks pete

RedStarFab
16-08-11, 21:18
haha it's all good

Yeah I was having a think of that on the weekend when I was checking out another VL. Just thinking about it now, I will most probably mount them on top with a couple of 90deg fittings.

DeVL
16-08-11, 21:28
no worries if you end up doing that just make sure that you stagger the fittings and use black and silver ones. Oh and just use a ilttle barb fitting for the wiper fluid part, ill mount the pump next to the wiper motor.

RedStarFab
16-08-11, 21:35
it's all under control. I will put some female weld on's and I will leave the fittings up to you

Im considering doing the basic style set up. Fuel cell and surge tank. 50L? Plus i dont want to cut a hole in the floor. Do you have any pictures of any set ups you have completed?

RedStarFab
19-08-11, 20:10
Sorry no pics......there isnt much to look at of a photo of a cell....all the good stuff is on the inside

hows the scuttle panel cover coming along? Still very interested

RedStarFab
21-08-11, 06:22
slowly......unfortunately. I will see how things go over the next few weekends. It's one of those jobs that aren't urgent (read FREE) that I have to get around to.

wpn_vl
21-08-11, 13:08
so will your plenums have redstar on them from now on instead of cpc?

RedStarFab
21-08-11, 19:42
not at this stage....the CPC name has been around for a while and is what I have built everything on....maybe later on down the track, I havent really thought about it to be honest

Finally got the first batch finished today.

It is pretty much a complete package for a single customer, combining direct replacement, being the fuse box cover (pic 1 left to right), wiper bottle (pic 2), power steering bottle (pic 3) and custom made parts coolant overflow (pic 4) and catch can (pic 5) which sit behind the headlights which also helps with the hiding of wiring.

As you can tell these are in a completely raw finish as they were welded. All of these are actually going off to the polisher on Monday so I will have pics of them polished hopefully by mid week, fingers crossed. I will also be making them available in a swirl or scotch brite finish aswell as the raw or polished finish.

For this same customer has also asked me to make a radiator cover and a scuttle panel cover....the last one being a bit of a mission but a very nice way of finishing off the engine bay.

Something which I have been asked a lot for is the fuse box replacement catch can (pic 6).

Anyway, enough of me typing, I will let the pictures do the talking. I am just trying to finalise the pricing on these items and when I have I will let you all know.

In the meantime, I am happy to take any questions on these or any other customer made products you may need.

Cheers,
Ariel

Just a bit confused what pics 4 and 5 are and where they go? Is there an overflow container that fits in the factory place?

RedStarFab
28-08-11, 20:41
No 4 is a catch can that sits behind the headlight. Something different I suppose that a customer requested to help hide all the wiring in there. No 5 is a catch can also which replaces the fuse rail when they are usually placed in the glovebox.

Hope that helps

You just sticking with Vl bits and pieces for now?

RedStarFab
05-09-11, 19:02
No worries Peter, just let me know what you are sfter and i will hopefully be able to help you out.

Unfortunately I haven't got around to the scuttle panel yet, but don't worry, as soon as I do, I will let everyone know.

For the direct replacement stuff, yes only VL's at the moment but more are coming like Evo, Skylines, XR6's etc etc. What do you have in mind? There is no real limits to what can be made and for what car.

Ariel

DeVL
05-09-11, 19:32
did you get the chance to take some photos of the tanks

InsaneVL
05-09-11, 19:52
+1 for undercar surge tank.
also might be interested in a custom p/s res & coolant overflow. Will PM you after powercruise when I got some more $ to spend on the car...
Might also get a rad support/rad cover - but might end up being too big to post and need very specific measurements for what I want, so might have to go local for it.

RedStarFab
05-09-11, 21:12
InsaneVL - undercar surge tank might - if I'm lucky - be knocked up on the weekend. All good with the p/s res and coolant overflow. As for the rad support, post is not a problem at all. Being "specific", does that mean you have a aftermket radiator or something like that?

Here you go Peter.......excuse the finger marks, dam they sh1t me

InsaneVL - undercard surge tank might - if I'm lucky knocked up on the weekend. All good with te p/s res and coolant overflow. As for the rad support, post is not a problem at all. Being being specific, does that mean you have a aftermket radiator or something like that?




Pic of the engine bay... Nizpro style cooler means Radiator is set back a bit.

http://i509.photobucket.com/albums/s340/js57ss/DSC00346.jpg

Was thinking of putting the Rad overflow in a better container between rad and rad support panel (on top of intercooler), along with a p/s res there - and then have a cover that covers from the front of engine bay to the back of the radiator, and from either side of the engine bay (in a sort of upside down T shape)... basically covering the black eyelid part + sweeping back to cover radiator... might have to mspaint it to show you what i'm talking about.. lol...

RedStarFab
05-09-11, 21:34
haha yeah I get ya...go mspaint lol. As long as you give me the measurements spot on, I will make it to exactly those.

DeVL
05-09-11, 21:35
radiator support cover and a cover for all my electrical componants that im hiding in the chassi rails but ill have to mount and get back to you on that one.

RedStarFab
05-09-11, 21:39
No worries at all. Standard replacement radiator cover will be coming soon, I am just waiting on my sheetmetal folder to turn up to get them done.

InsaneVL
05-09-11, 21:50
MSPaint attached.

I suspect the hard part will be the curves (particularly the front, and round the cooler piping) without having the actual car...

RedStarFab
05-09-11, 21:56
your right aye.....I am just trying to source a complete VL front cut to do this kind of stuff. I do have access to a couple of VL's locally that I could measure up to do it, its up to you

InsaneVL
05-09-11, 22:01
i'll let you know when i'm ready to get it done.. PM me a rough price on what that might cost so I can budget in ball park area..

Hi Everyone,

I know its been a while. I sold my welder, bought another one which was a bucket of sh1t and then bought another one which I ordered some new controls for and they ended up going to Mexico....anyway they are in Australia and I am expecting them here any day.

I have managed to knock up a couple of things just to keep the enquiries happy. So here goes:

Pics 1 - a teaser pic of my twin pump undercar surge tank. This design has been tested on a circuit VL for fitment and also performance with the extra volume compared to the initial version performing a lot better. Clearance and fitment are not a problem. As an option they can be ordered with fuel pumps and the bracket. Price will be $300 + delivery without pumps or bracket.

Pics 2 & 3 - B&M shifter adaptor - these will be priced at $140 + delivery. They are completely tig welded, prepped and painted. This one, the custyomer has asked for the front to be completely left out but if you would like it filled in, please just specify it and I can make it.

Over the next couple of weeks there will be come new design catch cans as well as a water bleeder tank and intank dual pump surge tank.

First post pricing updated

Cheers,
Ariel

Finally a bit of an update....have been flat out getting back on track after the purchase of a new welder and some unexpected disappointments and delays of another welder and parts....but anyway

I thought I should post up some pics of the kind of work there seems to be a bit of a demand for.

Very happy with Ariel's work, definately one of the best people i have delt with in the car scene. big thumbs up!

You wouldn't happen to know if the sedan surge tanks are the same as wagon?

RedStarFab
18-11-11, 18:41
No sorry, no sumps at the moment.

Ryan - send me a pic of the underside if the car in front of the diff and I will let you know. I think they will since I think they are the same from the wheel tubs forward.

Cheers,

InsaneVL
23-11-11, 18:16
Ariel - interested in the Surge Tank, but have a question about where it mounts.

I am presuming it mounts at the front of the diff hump and the pump is under the floor pan part (essentially under the back seat)... If the car bottoms out (say because of steep curb) in front of the rear wheels - will the ground impact the pump at all?

Ie, if viewing the car on a side profile - does the pump hang lower than the chassis at all?

In all my awesome mspaint skillz i have attached diagram to show what I mean:

RedStarFab

PSI-ETA - I can have one ready to go in a day or 2. If that's good with you, pm me and by the time payment is in the account it will be done.

George - yeah it still exists, it's been around for too long to just let it go. There are some major new products coming out shortly on the CPC side of things to really get people thinking. So yes, the plenums are still going quite well. PM me if you need any info on them.

Here's some more detailed pics of those goodies:

I have been a busy little elf, filling in my week off with a little bit of work, tying up some loose ends really. All pics are taken, straight after it has been welded, no cleaning at all

Custom Fuel Cell - with internal pumps on custom mounts, completely baffled, rear extension acting as internal surge tank/extra baffling, removable lid for access to pumps, fuel level sender and filler lid along with return and one way valve to be fitted. It holds some 63'ish litres. Will be coming back with the car for custom made mounts, not your average square tube.....just the norm is not good enough for this kind of work and ignore the Nissan bolts, they are being replaced with Stainless steel, button head screws....in my opinion, it's the little touches that make all the difference

Catch can to sit on chassis rail in engine bay - internally baffled

http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg201/ISL33P/image001-1.jpg

Aain, not your average mounting bracket. Admittedly, nothing special, but not just some sheetmetal with a 90deg bend in it.


Undercar surge tank - complete with twin fuel pump bracket....ooops, I'll have pics tomorrow, didn't realise I didn't take any of it today.

Happy welding,
Ariel

That fuel cell looks great, what are the prices of those again? around the 700 mark from memory?

RedStarFab
31-12-11, 05:03
Haha x2++ I spent around 4 days making this tank. Around 6-8 hours of welding and the rest was the design and fabrication. Internally, these are more detailed then any manifold you'll see. Considering there is no need for a surge tank and all the lines and fittings that go with it, its really not that bad.

RedStarFab

RedStarFab
01-01-12, 17:43
They are mounted with bolts through the floor and screw into those two M8 threaded bungs on the top of the surge tank. They sit in the high part of the boot floor in a sedan.....not sure about a wagon but if that part of the floorpan is the same, I would have to say yes.

Hey mate how do i purchase one of those fuse box replacement catch cans for a vl commodore?

http://i249
.photobucket.com/albums/gg201/ISL33P/medium14998001.jpg


available only to calaisturbo.com.au


is a new name from a familiar face, or should I say username ISL33P

Coming from the same single person who has been a contributor and sponsor of ct.com.au for close to a combined 10 years and priding myself on the two most important things being customer service and end quality of the finished product is establishing a new business to fabricate a massive range of straight bolt in or completely customised products to fit your car.

Combining some 7+ years of manifold fabrication and a growing demand from customers for other products made to the same high standards comes a massive range of direct replacement or completely customised parts.

Pricing is as follows:

Standard replacement parts

Fuse box cover - $140
Fuse box replacement catch can - $200 (all with original K&N air filter)
Power steering bottle $110 (length is optional at no extra charge)
Wiper bottle replacement $150 (uses standard wiper motor)
Overflow bottle replacement $160 (comes with fittings for factory hoses)
Under car surge tank - $300
Radiator cover - from $140. They can be made to go all the way over the fan shroud but that will be extra - pics of this coming shortly.
B&M shifter adaptor - $140 exchange (pics on page 4)


Surge tanks - all available with either push on or AN fittings sizes of your choice

1 litre single outlet - $120 (only available with single outlet)
2.5 litre single outlet - $130
2.5 litre twin outlet - $150
4.5 litre twin outlet - $200


Catch cans from $200 including original K&N air filter. Your imagination for its placement is the only limitation. Can be put, along the chassis rail, under the battery or standard airbox, down low behind the radiator, inner wheel arches....the list goes on. Can include baffles, oil drain/return

Airboxes from $300. Commonly mounted in the original position. They can be fitted with a bellmouth both prior to the turbo inlet pipe and also on the end of the intake pipe for the airbox which is feed from behind the bumper bar - have a look at the pic below for the one I done for a twin turbo R33 GTR

Fuel cell and tanks starting from $700 with all weld on fittings required and lid - can add custom made mounts and fuel level sender

Intercoolers with internal deflectors for more efficient use of the complete full core from $1000 - can modify existing intercooler from $350, yes even the chinese ones

Triple flow radiators from $900

Delivery is additional and times may vary - Polishing starts at $35 per unit

Any questions on products, pricing or specs, please pm me, I am more than happy to offer help or advise regarding any of these products.

Cheers,
Ariel

The welds are unreal on the tanks man pitty there being polished off muhahaha

Do you also make the strut covers n polished nuts?
Ive seen them on ebay from time to time but not in the list on first page, would rather group buy bits from you.
I'm guessing the tank in top left corner is coolant and washer combined into one unit behind strut tower?
Final silly question are the catch can that replace fuse box held in by factory bracket and bolt from bottom?

RedStarFab
05-04-12, 06:44
Apologies vlturbom8, I must have missed your post for some reason - no scuttle panel at the moment. Pictures of the catch cans, check out top of page 4. That one sits on top of the guard but all I would do is put the mounts on top instead of the bottom.

Apologies also to Tonny's - they are $200 + delivery

Ant Man - sorry not strut top covers. Yes you are right about the coolant and washer bottle combined. The fuse box catch can is bolted by the bolt closest to the guard only....it doesnt need anymore than that as it it supported by the bracket underneath as well

Here is some more of my latest work

Machine and replace the top of a strut cover - machined the top off, not touching the baffles and replaced it with some new sheet

Should be able to post up photos of the new fuel system for the Datsun ute if I finish it this weekend. Stainless steel lines from front to back as well as mounting a modified r31 fuel tank under the rear of the tray and surge tank in the front of the tray. The surge tank was going to be mounted underneath, but that will get in the way of the new suspension being installed.

Happy welding,

Never knew you done port work. Looking good man.

RedStarFab
05-04-12, 16:54
Yeah I do. Thing is you can't go overboard especially for street cars, they don't need much.

There isn't much porting in this apart from the merging of the 2 ports since the Oz delivered ca's run 8 individual ports. Apart from that it was a good clean up to get rid of all the factory casting marks and matching the exhaust ports to the new flange.

If you hadn't spent all that money on nipple clamps you'd have one by now. Let me know when you've got it and ill get you to spin one up for me...

Do you think you could make up some polished stainless steel heat shielding inserts for the bonnet between the bracing to stop the paint from bubbling on top because of the turbo.

Thanks sunshine

I'll get a price on the billet and let you know. Do you want it machined from a solid billet piece ($$$$$$$) or do you want me to make one from some round tube a sh1tload cheaper but will have welds instead of being one piece like a billet one

Behind the headlight is the most popular and really cleans up the bay

If you hadn't spent all that money on nipple clamps you'd have one by now. Let me know when you've got it and ill get you to spin one up for me...

Do you think you could make up some polished stainless steel heat shielding inserts for the bonnet between the bracing to stop the paint from bubbling on top because of the turbo.

Thanks sunshine

also keen on the bonnet plates if u could put up a preview pic?

RedStarFab
11-11-12, 03:52
Unfortunately I don't have any pics because no-one has ordered a set. It will basically be a flat sheet of stainless or aluminium, depending on what you prefer to the shape.

SteveVL - sounds like I need you to come past for a measure up ;)

Yeah was looking at getting the spacer added on, and possibly see if a external gate would fit off the housing (GT35) in low mount position?

I'd prefer there be no wastegate sticking up through the heatshield for stealth purposes

So in my case do you think you could make a drop box to suit my vk shifter surround in my vc:

To fit a b&m pro ratchet fit like this?

PM replied.

Over the Xmas break, I got stuck into teaching myself how to so some 3D drawing and here is what I come up with.

1 - Custom engine mounts to suit a CA18 in a 1200 ute
2 - RB25/26 exhaust manifold flange with transistion from port shape to ID of steam pipe bends

There is plenty more to come.....one of them is aluminium RB30 sumps and other is power steering pump relocation bracket. Just waiting to get a spare block and the drawings will begin ;)

Keep posted,
Ariel

16-01-13, 05:50
What price will you do the rb25 exhaust flanges for, also very interested about the alloy rb30 sump about time some one started making them. Will they be larger capacity cast alloy? Would also be nice if they had a bung location with enough meat at the front for the rb25/30 oil return instead of having to tee back into the Turbo oil drain.

RedStarFab
16-01-13, 06:06
I am actually just waiting on a price at the moment. Would you like the one with the transistion or without ie keeping the port shape on both faces?

The sump will be a sheetmetal one, since I will be making them on a one by one basis at the start. The things I am going to include so far are:
- larger capacity
- gated and baffled
- oil return on drivers side (one from rear of head for 26 twin cams) which can be used for catch can overflow. Having it located on the drivers side stops the reversion of the gases due to the crank rotation
- and a meaty bung for the drain ;)

Ariel

vh sle rb
16-01-13, 15:25
Yeah it would just be for the rb25 flange.

RedStarFab
16-01-13, 17:47
Ok, just one more question, do you want it to suit both 25 and 26 in case you upgrade heads....also makes it easier to sell. no difference in price.

They are getting cut tomorrow.

They are getting cut tomorrow.don't bother me if it suits both mate, its a r33 head so has the larger ports very similar to 26 any ways. Pm me a price

RedStarFab
16-01-13, 17:54
no worries. I will have some prices tomorrow morning. I will get some cut regardless, because I have a few manifolds to make

RedStarFab
16-01-13, 18:03
I only have lengths of 12 and a small bit of 16. I would have to buy a length of 14mm, $100

vh sle rb
16-01-13, 18:10
16mm is still good, I just want enough meat left in the flange after welding an machining thats all

RedStarFab
16-01-13, 18:12
should only need a light skim if you have it clamped properly and with some preload, thats why i use 12mm. 16mm is not a problem if thats what you prefer?

vh sle rb
16-01-13, 18:16
OK cheers for the advice, pm me when its good to go I'll take your word for it if you say the 12mm is the go.

They come to $100 each, my cost price.
