3d printed spare and repair parts

Everything that doesn't belong in the previous categories probably belongs here. Interiour (how are the seats mounted? how to remove the CEM?) and exteriour (how to replace the popup-lights shock absorbers or a door) are discussed here!

Greetings Everybody,
bit lost about who's doing what with 3D printed items.
I could use the following 3D printed items:
2x repair kit for window operating mechanisms,
1x L/H & 1x R/H DRL lens covers - I like the look of the ones Ortovox77 is developing.
6x door trim clips (the round ones).
Can anyone supply and how do I pay?
Just a thought - would it be feasible for somebody set up a supply point in the UK?
Thanks.
Hi Yorkievolvo,
Sorry for late response.
I currently have little time over to make and sell the parts I create and since I live in Sweden shipping probably would be more expensive that using the printing services referred to in the thread.
https://www.shapeways.com/create
https://www.3dhubs.com/
My goal is primarily to share what I do and hope it can help other 480 owners, so as soon as I'm satisfied with something new I have created I will put it up on my account here https://www.thingiverse.com/Ortovox/designs it is free to download and can be used on the service above.

About the DRLs I have not had time to finish them and not sure if the result will be good enough in the end.

Regards Jonas

Greetings Jonas,
I understand that your time is rationed and you've got other things to do.
I was just wondering if somebody could take up (had taken up) the baton and could help.
Thanks for the work you've already done and, if you do manage to get the DRL lens covers developed, you can be assured a pair will be installed on my car very shortly thereafter.
Best Regards,
Mike H

I have actually re-done the knob recently so that it is closer to the original with the correct hole size for the led that is smaller than my original model.
I think it look little better overall.

I also created this project board that is open for anyone to add suggestions of what to make for the Volvo 480 and to see progress.
