    EOI on 3D printed FTP and aux water pump covers

    Any interest in these? I had these modelled because I am missing FTP covers on my car, and the fitment is perfect.

    Price to be determined once I find a suitable supplier and material.

    Draft print here, using spare material. Final will be in black.

    There may be a market for 3D-printed A and C pillar covers that can be covered with upholstery fabric.

    I'm sure there'd be a market for it, but it would not be cheap! Not many places can print to that size. It'd have to be a commercial/industrial job.

    Why do all 3D printed parts have that texture. Is there a way to smooth that out? Just sand it I imagine?

    It's the printing process. Depending on the filament used, yes it's possible to smooth it out.

    Not at this stage. I'll be selling the covers and shipping worldwide.
