Yes! I'd be very interested as well. My scuff plates, like most need re-chroming. Which isn't cheap.
Would repro scuffs work out to be cheaper though?

Firstly the Monaro scuff plates were tooled up by an independent parts supplier who eventually sold the tooling to Rare Spares. They are expensive to produce and sell in limited volume.
Secondly the sales of HKTG would be checked against the HQ ones to give some indication of potential sales. Then they would have a set sent to the factory for tooling and production costs. This would be calculated out to determine a final selling price and if it would be viable to proceed.
Thirdly it requires the tooling cost to be paid up front first before the factory would proceed and not see any return on the money for at least 18 months. This also depends on sample approval which doesn't always happen first time they are tested.
Finally there may be other projects underway that may have higher importance or are tying up available funds. It is not an endless bucket with so many items under consideration. Often there may be over 100 at any one time.

That is not to say each item is not important to those seeking it but a matter of priority, help with getting good samples and finding the right supplier who has availability in their production schedules. However all requests are considered and looked at, especially ones through Fastlane.
At present there is no listing of future projects, in most cases, until off tool samples have been approved and the production and delivery process is underway.
