Coat hangers

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!

I'd also be interested. Have considered a big bit of heat shrink but never actually done anything about it.

I looked at making repro’s but it’s the material that’s the problem. It’s a soft rubber.
I’ve some links for someone who did a variety of it, rather than a reproduction. Can dig them out if you want?

Edit: link as promised

PM replied. Thanks a lot Marek!

Should be reproduced though. I have no experience with molding and silicone and stuff, but would take 2 sets just to send it out to someone with reproduction skills

As Jeff linked to the hard plastic part is a doddle to print in 3D but the 'soft part' is a bummer as the lip will cause issues?

maybe an alternative is to print a modified hard part to take a screw with a cover as used for DIY like these?

https://www.screwfix.com/c/screws-nails ... /cat840002 (other suppliers are possible)

if the rigid part is printed in matching black, job done, or make a 3D plastic cap in grey? but only uses a tiny bit of filament to make a cap! :shock:
