Hi All,

Been a long time since ive posted anything, but regularly pop in so read the chat!

Ive had an idea for a little project thats been buzzing around my head for a while now. As far as i can tell (from internet searches, etc),no one is currently using/selling/manufacturing anything like this. (Sorry for being so vague!). Which surprises me as it seems like and obvious, "cheap" fix for and obvious problem!

Is there any way to find out if this product (in any way) currently exists before i waste any time on it?? haha.

If the product doesnt already exist, how would one patent the idea? From drawings? Prototype? etc.

The product is vehicle related, so i would be surprised if none of the car manufacturers dont already own a similar product/design.

Any help, info, etc greatly recieved!

Thanks in advance.
