Alrighty, well there seems to be enough interest that'll we'll move beyond just the few small batches we've made for me to keep around and repair customer vehicles. It'll be a couple days while we clean up the design, add some lettering to the parts to identify where they go on the door pocket, and I'll put together a bit of a how-to and throw it up on my website/this forum for folks to follow. The inside of the pieces are left rough to maximize surface area of epoxy to the door pocket while squeezing out any excess to the rest of the pocket. It's a bit of an over engineered piece for what it does
I'll keep everyone up to date as far as what the costs involved are as it seems like we wouldn't waste our time getting a bunch of these made and just end up sitting on them forever.

We're sort of bottom barreling this project to help some folks out as it is, I'll have to confirm what pricing would be this Monday/Tuesday, but I don't believe it'll be too far off the $40 mark I'm aiming for.

Got pics? Are you talking about the door handle escutcheon that have a habit of popping out when the doors are closed too hard? I'm working on those right now.

I could use a set also.
These were done in ABS - the printing design is intended to spread the load to the rest of the door pocket when there's force applied. I have roughly 8 lbs sitting in the door pocket currently and I'm slamming the door to find a failure. At this rate, the pocket will break before these pieces will!
