False alarm, I re-uploaded it and somehow it came through better?

This is how it was, I looked at pricing and it seemed odd.

I can print it out of Nylon which is semi flexible for ~$35 shipped for a set.

Thank Cali Wagon dude.
Maybe a fresh post regarding availability in the wagon subforum would get more attention than being buried in a couple long threads?.....

Those look pretty good.
I had a friend of my son try his hand at it. I gave him a sample and the wing to proto type with and came back with these. Not the style i was hoping for and the retainer stem is not the right size. I haven't gotten back him for correction.

I was just thinking about this, body trim molding clips cause we know 90% are hard to find.

Yeah, I mean start making a list, right here if needed. Let try and keep it realistic, small parts that just aren't made or found any more. If you can get it anywhere, its probably simpler to just do that. No promises but maybe eventually we/I might figure it out.

Looks like I'll have to dig out some clips after the holidays.

Ask what filament was used when he printed. Probably PLA. I've heard that if you print with ABS plastic that you can take the completed part, put it in a container with a cap full of acetone and it will smooth out all the groves.

I cannot confirm this but will be trying it when I get some ABS filament.

Would you buy one? :LOL: Just dicking around in Fusion360, came up with this. I think I need to find "other logos" (cough plz look the other way GM kthx) and get to work... This is about 100x15x3.5mm in size in the slicer. As designed was like 17cm which is pretty big for a keychain lol. Got a long print running but I'll test run one next. Only mono-colors (I have silver white black and a rosewood atm. and clear but why... gotta test the dk blue TPU on it for fun I guess)
