Hello I am interested in a pair of A - B - C caps for my Tamora
I've responded to your PM....can only do "B" post currently .... But I've re-engineered the "mucket seal" to be thicker and the TPE material stronger than silicon and adheres better , so less likely to drop off or perish smile

PS When RACETECH are selling them at £47 ( plus VAT) each , I can understand why mine at £40 a pair are selling so well smile

PPS Anyone wanting Ford Capri "mucket seals" are now on offer @ £20 a pair smile

Apologies GW. Unfortunately, my diary has become completely full with projects and tasks.

I need to get back into the car (Tamora for those that have asked for cappings) in the next couple of weeks and will get you shots of the A and C caps plus the plasticine temp item C pillar that I did. I think the C pillar could benefit from being taller.

I'll look at removing them and getting them up to you.

Stewart , no worries.... This morning I've got hold of examples of both the Tamora "A" & "C" post mucket seals... So I'll try scanning them and hopefully have them available quite soon.

Hi Ross,

I've got one pair from a Tamora "A" posts (which I am pretty sure are the same as a Sag). I am charging £100/pair (+£7 P&P) , because they take 12 hours and 30 metres of filament to make each one.and when something goes wrong i have to start the whole process again. As with the TVR originals they may need a bit of fettling for a perfect fit...I find using my dremel with a small paper sanding cylinder works quite well. PM me your address and I will give you my details if you are still interested.
I did not think there was a problem with my sag when you bought it ...i did replace a "B" post mucket... Are you sure you want the "A" post ones and not the "B" post ?...
The "B" posts are very popular and I have 5 pairs in stock.
Nice to hear from you smile

PS Today I got up at 3:30 AM to start an "A" post mucket for a Tuscan, it will finish at 8pm after 16hours 30 mins and 40 metres of filament.... just half an hour to go smile

Tamora/T350/Sagaris "A" & "B" Post muckets



The insides aren't so pretty, because you can't 3D print in mid air, they require removable support structures which leave the rough surface. But since i try to keep the support structures on hidden areas, i regard it doesn't matter.

Hello and good evening.
I need a pair of the rear rubber end caps for the doors of my Tamora.
I could pay by PayPal or bank transfer.
How much are those caps including posting to Germany.

Kind regards
Manfred

I've improved the appearance of the insides of the "A" post ones

Just a quick note of thanks to Glow Worm for his outstanding work on producing these.

As with all things tvr the ones for my Sag are slightly different to the ones he had produced already. I could have made them fit but after a quick email to Keith a new modified set arrived in the post today.

Would highly recommend Keith, absolute pleasure to deal with and goes above and beyond for us TVR owners.

Yes , but I need to make some more.... I assume yours are like the ones at the start of the thread ..which I ask £100 / pair
However , very very early MK1s didn't have seals, the GRP door had them moulded in. Then early Tuscan MK1 had a silicon mucket which is a different.... then TVR seem to have standardise on the same MK1 , MK2s and Convertibles. If you have a phot it would make sure.

Send me a PM if interested

PS "A" frame muckets do seem to require a lot of fettling for a good fit , so you'll need to Dremel or similar to grind the inner surface.

I'm beginning to think TVR have used two different sorts on MK1 , the same as happened on Tamoras, or maybe some Tamoras got fitted with early Tuscan ones smile , can't be sure.

The ones on the top (A and B post), I suspect are from early MK1s . The ones at the bottom (A and B) are later MK1s , MK2s and Convertibles . The very first Tuscans didn't have A post muckets , only B post ones.




I've been busy trying to meet demand since I started. I'm trying to have a bit of break and do some testing to see if I can speed up the process and improve the quality . 30hours to make one A post one is a bit of a pain especially when it cocks up after 25 hours smile .

Most of demand has been for the Sagaris,T350, Tamora ones , which I'm happy with the quality.
