    Thanks for that info Gaisa. I did some measuring of 'stuff' and here's what I found, for what it's worth.

    What I'm referring to is everything from this point to the body. But perhaps I'm overthinking it. How hot/warm do the heater boxes get? Hot enough to melt ABS?

    Twice now, I've purchased these, and they're too small for the heater box openings. So either I have aftermarket heater boxes or I don't get how these are supposed to be used.

    Great Job, Brent. Very clever use of the laser level. I don't recall how I did mine, but I think I made a S.W.A.G (Scientific Wild Ass Guess) and managed to get it right.

    To be honest, I can't recall, but I know the pins do need to be locked into place so I believe I accounted for them.

    If printed in ABS with full to 20% infill, 3-5 top and bottom layers and the same outer layers, it should hold up quite nice. Just not PLA, you don't want it to disintegrate on you.

    Depending on what you consider "small" check out older Miata side lights, or older VW Jetta. That's US based.

    That's a great idea, Brett. As long as the micro balloons don't clog up the nozzle, it should spray just fine and provide great protection for the raw fiberglass. I wonder what the ratio of bed liner...

    I like the modern diffused look, too. Although I've never done much research as to how it's done. Do you know? Can you see from the tail light you have there?

    Same way I did mine. Works great. If you create the hole in the bracket in the correct location, you can lock the body of the cable "holder" against the hand brake and it makes adjusting easier.
