I’d love a multi-colour kit; is that possible?

If you wanna order one of each kit, I think we can have red slings

Green with chin sling please.  i have a Fusion 9961 mask from Simmons.  Almost decade old foam, still using as my main lid.  See any issues with Maltese in that?

None at all sir!

Current list.  Cutoff date is tomorrow (8/13) by midnight Pacific Standard time.

  • A few of you seem to have more than one mask, so I'll throw this out there:
    • If anyone wants a second kit, you can add one now for another $5 off the promo price.
    • You can mix and match.  If you are grabbing a Green for $80, you can add the blue for $85 second kit price.
    • Good deal if you've got a buddy/backup near you that wants to split cost.

@mr_shifty1982, @bunnyman666 do you still want in?

Those below, if you are ready to commit, please Paypal me (in US funds, please) at:
ericc@maltesesports.com (note the two Cs) - but please read everything below first.

  • These are coming straight to me from our distribution center in New Jersey.
    • I would like to minimize shipping cost from there to me, and I would like to mitigate shipping cost. 
    • Please pay by 8/17.  If you have a special case please PM me.
    • @Snowman30I will ship these with your knee pads, so you are exempt from this if you need an extra week or so.
  • Paypal Gift is preferred, but if you don't feel comfortable doing that, regular Goods and Services payment method is fine.
  • Please add shipping cost for your country (see asterisk at bottom).
  • Please include your username on this forum in your payment notes, along with your address.

Placed the order for all the kits in the group buy.  I expect these to come in middle of next week.

@Snowman30, @#1BeerLeaguer still waiting on you to reach out and let me know if you need to make arrangements.

Since we hit 10 orders, I will be raffling off a pair of lace bite pads.  Stay tuned.

@Chenner29 what adhesive(s) does Maltese recommend using to permanently attach the padding? Phil's video on youtube is from 6 years ago and didn't know if recommendations may have changed.

The kits are self-adhesive for fitting purposes.  Once you get what you want, there's a superglue bottle included to permanently mount the padding.

I might be installing a kit for a local guy here, I'll take photos and share my process/progress

Do you have any thoughts /recommendations about using velcro?

Used Velcro with no problem.  It’s been 2 years and holds fine.  Easy to remove from mask to wash occasionally or when we had the mask painted.

You can, it will change the fit.  Probably adds anywhere from 1/8" to 1/4" based on the thickness of hook and loop used.

Back in the mid-00s, a version of the gel kit used hook and loop to attach the padding to the shell. 
My biggest recommendation if you plan to go this route is to make sure the inside of the shell is completely clean for best adhesion.

Are there any more of this to buy? I'm looking for the ocean blue with no chin sling. Can you do a 3/8ths?

The group discount has expired. However, (and I’ll have to check my notes), but I believe I’m still waiting for payment for one ocean blue kit with sling. 1/4” and 1/8” shim will get you to 3/8”.

Where are you located? You can PM me if you don’t want to post for everyone else to see.
