    Headlamp covers

    I spent a bit of time creating an .eps file of the headlamp covers. An .eps file is a CAD format that can be used to cut the shape out at actual size either by using a cnc machine or a vinyl cutter. To ensure I had the shape correct (this took a few tries and minor alterations) I first cut the shape in vinyl and applied it to a 3mm soft plastic board which I was then able to trim to size to test fit. Satisfied that I now have a good fit I will be emailing the file to a specialist CNC company to cut the panels out of clear cast acrylic. However, If anyone wants a copy of the .eps file to make their own covers PM me and I can email you a copy for your own use

    Nice idea Phil.

    Actually I think we ought to start to build up a library of downloads on the site for various CAD file bits and pieces as people start to create them. Think we would already have the following based on past posts :

    1) Headlamp Covers

    2) Side Sill Kick Plates

    3) Nova Logos

    4) Side Windows.... ?

    I may have a new version of a Nova Side Sill kick plate myself to offer soon. I wanted something longer than the previous group buy to protect a bit further up the sill against jean studs etc.. scratching the paint as people get in. I don't know if its going to work well yet but should know for sure in a couple of weeks.

    Just wondering if you'd had a chance to upload these yet Dan?

    Just uploaded them Phill, I also took the opportunity to upload a bunch of other things in the relevant categories!

    Take a look and see what you think.

    If anyone else has anything that should be added to the downloads section please feel free to contact me and I will add it.
