Unfortunately, cost vs. sales projections have put the project on hold...being a one-year only part, the numbers aren't looking real good for cost recovery with a reasonable value-based selling price. I have already invested in 3-d scans, just not able to jump further off the edge and invest the tens of thousands needed to bring this part into production. I will continue to persue more options. Would love to make it happen.
Sorry to everyone who has been patiently waiting.
The NOS set I have we're used for the 3D scan. They will eventually be used as a reference to gauge quality for production pieces, if and when it happens... Nice used ones are hard to locate. Good luck with your search.
I have several sets I have pulled off cars over the years. very difficult to find a complete set not broken. it seems the drivers side is always broken and the passenger side is intact. I looked at reproducing them using 3d printing and the cost was very high per set. being a one year only part I seriously doubt they will ever be reproduced. I have been offered very good money for a set. problem is if I sell them I could not find anymore.
If someone could share the 3D scan, I could print out a few sets. The printed ones will I think be fragile, as thin as they are. I could add a bit of thickness to add strength, but it may be noticeable.
