I'm picking up a project Lee02 and myself started a few months back . Carrying on the work Lee did for his Tuscan Convertible A post rubber moulding and hopefully extending the range to cover more models . The process is expensive and time consuming , because you just can't scan a part and print it (if only you could smile ) . Scanning produces a 3D bit map , but this has to be smoothed by applying 3D splined surfaces and made into a geometric mathematical model before printing. That's the expensive bit that cost lee £250 for his part. I've got Griff,Chim,Tuscan 2/Convertible ,Tam/Sag/T350 B post caps and Chim targa bar caps . I haven't any Tam A post samples and I don't know about Cerbera bits.
This the reverse engineered .stl file from Lee



And his 3D TPU printed part



I'll update this thread as to progress (it won't be quick) , but I would like to gauge the interest in purchase of these items for lets say £30 / pair ??? (off the top of my head figure)

I'm close to finishing a small supply for my customers of the Sagaris ones. They will retail at £80 a pair so I think if you can do at £30 that's a bargain and gets my support.

I'd certainly be up for a pair. For a T350.

Keith - Good job!

I know of one person with an '02 Mk.1 Tuscan that needs a set of the front glass mouldings....not sure if his rear items are required.
I'll direct him to this topic.

Maybe I didn't explain ... But I need samples to scan , I have some as stated above. But if anyone has "spare" or fallen off ones in good condition they can lend me so I can get them scanned it would be appreciated and required.

In order Chim Targa Bar, Tuscan 2/Convertible, Chim, Griff and the uni currently has a Sag one





I think Sag , Tamora and T350 share the same "B" frame part. (but I need to make sure .

The only "A" frame I have is the Tuscan Convertible and I guess the MK2 is the same

I don't know if the MK! is the same as a MK2 , but I guess not .. so yes I would need a sample. I hope using a mirror image would work between passenger and drivers side. I know TVR parts were moulded so theirs weren't the same , but all needed trimming to fit , because no two TVRs are the same smile .

These are the relevant items from my Tamora. Do they look like those on the T350/Sagaris?

The "B" frame one .. yes looks like a Sag but I've not got the "A" frame one , different that any other one I've seen ...I need One smile
I believe the technical terms for these items is "MUCKETS" but I'm not sure Heath Briggs at X-Works is taking the piss and having me on , or his spell checker is miss behaving smile

I would be also interested by a pair for a Chimaera, could we have more information about the prices (for the different model) and delays?
I will ask to other French owners, I know some who have also lost this small rubber item.
