        Visit the website, more pictures. gimpsunlimited.com

        There is a bit more to it than just STL files: having a printer with a large enough bed, orientation of the print for strength and finish, optimizing the specific printer settings for ABS, finding appropriate LEDs and how many, where to locate them, wiring them, etc, then getting lucite bar fabricated, lucite “bolts”, bullet ends and assembly and test. If your car had one but doesn’t now due to the ravages of time, these are a form fit function replacement but are not identical (see website). Plastic mold injected parts are awesome, especially if you have $$$$$$ to spend having molds made. There has to be a huge market to make that viable.

            Thanks. Apologies for the stl request, I wasnt aware it was a full business venture. Good work.

              Can I suggest that you put on the website what forms of payment you accept...... especially PayPal. Drives me nuts to have to go all the way to "checkout" to discover they don't take AMEX or Personal Checks or PayPal.... I'm interested in two of your products.

                Bob, thank you! Hadn’t thought of that. Will take care of it this weekend. Sorry for the confusion. Email us at gimpsunlimited@gmail.com what you want, we will send you the cost with shipping. Then we can send you a PayPal invoice or you send us a check, either way. We had the PayPal buttons working earlier but I need to figure out shipping costs for the new items. I had shipping dialed in for the caps (which all got bought up in one fell swoop), but not for the plinth or third brake light. PayPal is our choice! Again, thanks for letting us know, our apologies.

                  How about making up the seat belt holders that are located down by the door sill? You could also probably improve on the visor holders.

                    ed_h made some....

                    I have the .stl for those. Need to mod/model them for the tabs of my aftermarket replacement seatbelts...

                      Ed graciously provided the STL file but, you need the inner nylon “spring” and the OEM belt tabs to fit. If you have those, go to 3D Hub and have them print you a set, I recommend ABS. As TR6harris has noted, if you don’t have the OEM tabs, they need a bit of redesign. I recommend using Fusion360 for the CAD. However, printed ABS does not “spring” that well, and I believe over the long term will fail. A friction fit like my caps would work, but you will need several iterations on the same printer to get the fit just right. The ABS shrinks while you print and the amount is dependent on the printer, filament, orientation of the print, and the environmental factors. As for the sun visor clips, I thought somebody had done it already? Yes? I would presume Ed but maybe someone else. Again, the springyness and friction fit may take a couple iterations. Also, printed parts, especially ABS, are pretty strong except between the layers. You will need to keep that in mind when you CAD a part, as the stresses may lead to inter layer failure. Mold injected plastic parts are awesome and we take them for granted, strong, relatively long lasting, nice finish, etc etc. Too bad you need to drop $$$$, like tens of thousands for a complex part, for the molds. Then pay for a run of 1000 or so.

                          I just received the switch plinth that I ordered and it looks better in person than it does in pictures. I haven't installed it yet but, "knowing" Craig's work, I'm sure the fit will be perfect.
