This was my first attempt at created a fun, car antenea spinner using the color sandstone material,

I was VERY pleased with the look, feel and durability of the material. I was also very happy with the quality of the color printing.

I did find that the coloring faded pretty fast in sunlight. I sprayed the part with some clearcoat which helped keep the fading to a minimum.

When I tested the product it took until I reached 40 MPH for the snitch to start spinning.

I need to add more angle to the "wings" so that it will spin more consistently and at lower speeds.

If I can eliminate the fading and get the wings to react better I will be happy with this product.

Very cool!

For the spin at whatever speed, a cup or trough shape would work (similar to an anemometer or Vertical Axis Wind Turbine).

Thanks and thank you for the advice. I've never heard of an anemometer so I cant wait to check it out. The vertical axis is the tricky part to this design. Thanks again.

Hey carine,
It is not for sale yet because I need to make a couple of adjustments. Hopefully I will have something ready within a month.

Glad you like the design.
