will the reflector bases be molded from the part you have made up? Will they be smoother than the 3D printed one? I need the reflector as well, but I figured if I could not find one I would just delete the reflectors.

The reflector gaskets are the ones pictured, just like you see on my vehicle. I only had one original and it was disintegrating. The reflectors you can find any 41mm and make it work. Just have to find a way to extend it. See some of that discussion earlier in the thread. The visible parts are smoother than the parts hidden behind the gasket and by the reflector itself.

to be clear I’m making $0 on this just doing it for those that needed them like I did. selling them for what I had to pay for them. I’ll put any spares up on eBay in a month or so once I’ve taken care of any mudders that wanted some.

Well I appreciate your efforts. Our vehicles are so rare and nearly 100% unobtainium so anytime someone goes to the effort to reproduce a part I am in. Let me know how and where to pay. Thx Mark

This is what’s great about 3D printing, 10 years ago we couldn't have made a small batch like this without a lot of up front costs. They're not as perfect as injection molded ones would be but for something like this I am happy with how they came out. These were the first parts I've had 3D printed before, now I keep finding more and more applications for them :)

Please put me down for a pair. I also need one Kito or whatever the name is reflector or two new ones that will work.
Those you’ll just need to find whatever 41mm reflector you can. I’m not supplying those. I doubt you’ll ever find the koito ones, but any 41mm will look fine.

I’m going to start shipping these out on Wednesday. I’ve gotten a couple of payments. Anybody else that wants one PM me with a) what you’d like (reflector gaskets and/or gas plug and quantity) and b) your address and I’ll reply with your total and where to send PayPal. Any spares I’ll put up on eBay this weekend, but they’ll cost more to cover eBay fees etc.
