    I had the same thought.

    Earlier this year I took a pair of '70 windshield pieces to get estimates for 3D scanning & printing thinking I'd add them to the Lab-14 parts I currently make. The pair were sent out to the scanner who quoted $2,000.00 to scan and provide the info the printer needs, and the printer quoted $150.00 per piece to make them. So I didn't get them made. Will watch for results of your attempt.

    Unfortunately the vendor has to postpone tomorrows session. Going to reschedule but the time is indefinite.

    I would be interested in buying a set of windshield eyebrows if someone made them. My originals have broken corners but it's all I have.

    Here's the 71-74 seat track cover. One part number for both LH and RH. Haven't seen these repopped.
    Here's the 71-81 seat hinge covers, LH and RH. They repop these, so probably not worth your time. All parts have the grain texture.

    How about the face plates for 1973 Deluxe seat belts? The one that break easily.

    ^ The exploding 73 seat belts. That's a good one to make.

    Just a thought here. Why not buy mold release agent, then cover the pieces with fiberglass. When dry, pry off your new part from the original. Or make your mold from one made from cardboard.
