Hi

In the process of finalizing a gasket for the LVs rear boot handle and door handles.

We 3D scanned the actual Handle and the 4 outer door handles and have designed gaskets to replace the factory gaskets.

The final design will have the exact beveled look around the outside of the handle as the factory gasket.

After fitting the prints today minor adjustments are being made to make it as perfect as possible before we start producing them.

The idea will be the sell a set which will include the following :

3D printed Rear hatch handle gasket x1
3D printed outer door handles gasket x4
The outer doors handle gaskets are made up of two parts for each handle.

So in fact you will be receiving x9 gaskets in total.

Planning on doing runs of 20 sets at a time to bring the cost down.

Please have a look at the prototype which is white and will be in black when finished. I should have the final sample by Sunday next week which we will test fit and I will share pictures, material spec sheets and prices then.

I'm interested in one set. It will be interesting to know what material you find that is flexible with good UV stability properties. Good info for future 3D printing projects.

Ok so I got the refined files printed and am happy with the fit and finish.

Next step is to send the files out to a few companies to get material options with the spec sheets.

I have been told by the company who did the designs and test print that this material is the best for the application I have in mind. But for peace of mind I will explore some other options so that we get the most suitable finish. I doubt very much that people will like to dismantle handles after a few months to replace the gaskets.

Here are some pictures.
