Tools and fixtures are what allow us to make repeatable, reliable, and affordable parts and assemblies.  As parts evolve through the design cycle, we have been engaging with our existing suppliers as well as identifying new (and also backup) suppliers.  To date, we have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into tooling and fixtures. Additionally, we have just approved our production frame.  Soon, we will kick off tooling for our bodywork, which is the longest lead-time due to the size and complexity of the parts.  With tooling in motion, we are able to turn our attention to the smaller/simpler parts.
