This is great! Please sign me up on the list. Been looking for a while. There's a guy on Facebook that pops in every few months saying they'd like to 3D print parts, people say this is what they want and that's the end of it until he comes back a few months later starting the process again.

Glad someone is actually able to make a quality (not weak 3D printed stuff) that will hold up to the extreme heat in that location.

It's been a lot of work to get the drawings along with testing and development to get a good product to offer.

The bracket is compression molded, but the trim piece is a high density 3D print process using an expensive plastic, but think industrial printer, we aren't talking about the 3d printer found at a college or high school. The HD plastic trim pieces really turned out well and look very close to the OEM trim cover.

I'll add you to the list, did you need the bracket or trim piece?

The important part (bracket) is not 3D printed though. That's the part that is subjected to the most extreme conditions. I've not found one that isn't split in half and if it isn't, as soon as the screws are backed out it crumbles.

You can put me on the list for both.

Increased the initial order for the bracket piece and was able to get a better price per unit!

Will probably take a lifetime to sell the whole inventory, but the price discount was significant.

The bracket for the group buy will drop from $69.95 (10 person group buy) to $45.95

The group buy will officially close on 11/23/2016 so get on the list if you haven't already.

Got my bracket and cover today. They look fantastic and seem like they'll hold up for a good long time. Don't wait for my report on fitment however... I won't be able to get to my car until maybe late December, and if not them it will not be until next summer sometime.

Got mine today and the bracket was made nice and sturdy and the fitment and install went very well!! Fits perfectly like stock, but better than the original!!! Thanks again!!!
