Yup, I don't want to tread on anyone. Long story short, Mudder is allowing me to print his TLC's and keep owners trunk latches working, Dan bought one of those and was asking me about the spoiler blocks. I printed a set of those for him (as well as a few extra sets) since this thread had went dead.Hey guys,
toomanycamrys was my buddy, and he up and left to go back to his hometown. I have his excess stock of spoiler blocks if any of you are interested.
Dunno who Jesse is (just logged in quickly to post this), but Jesse, if you want to take over supplying these that works as well. Life's too short for us to have rattly spoilers .
Those of you who have been PM'ing toomanycamrys, if you're interested please PM me, and I'll keep my inbox trimmed so I don't miss anyone. Can fire up the printer and crank out more sets as well. Don't have OBDII C&C cases at this time, but will keep it updated. Cheers!
I tried to come up with a 3DP solution... but there just isn't much extra room in there to overcome the weaknesses of 3DP parts. One thought I had - but didn't try - was to design a 3DP sleeve that slid over both end of the rod, and was then glued in place... never got around to trying that out, as you can still buy replacement arms for around $12... I just bought half a dozen of each arm and called it a day. If the arms ever do go EOL (maybe they are now), I'm sure I can come up with a 3DP solution.
Probably have to print them in nylon or maybe a filament with carbon fiber in it. And it would still be questionable whether a 3d print would stay together.I designed a bushing essentially as shown above, but for the G1 insight... it didn't last more than a couple rainstorms. The stresses from the linkage to the 3DP insert are too great, causing them to shear.
Hey Jesse,I recently made a video showing the install of these blocks. I've been selling them in addition to the TLC parts for a year or so now.
