Reqd. Door closer catches (4)
Bonnet catch (1)
Or......if you see one at a wrecker then how about grab the parts, add a margin (for your trouble) and call me.

I am also looking for parts for my 300CD. Like the OP, I need the door catches.
I am happy to pay a reasonable price plus freight for them.
"What is a reasonable price"?
My guess is $20. Anyone care to enlighten me?

With the door catches, i just 3d print some little inserts that seem to work well replacing the rubber bits that break off or get worn down.

Sure, i'm still experimenting with the material shape and type. Not quite ready to bring to market so to speak but happy to share :)

I can make most of the small plastic things that get brittle and break away.

Next thing for me is the small oval shaped screw covers for the panels in front of your knees inside the car :) Everyone loses those haha.

the screw covers would be good . You could always send me copies of the stl files as I could print them myself. :notworthy: I have 3 printers but can't get my head around the 3D drawing program so d/l all my stuff :Doh: There are a few bits on thingiverse I have looked at but they are the wrong models. I only print for myself though would be happy to help our members if I can. Most of the material I use is ABS as it matches the car parts mostly though I have been looking to try nylon later. :occasion5:

when i finish the vacuum system i'll get to printing these.

I have these colour options in PLA
White
Vibrant red
Blue
Green
translucent blue
Translucent Orange
Black
Purple

I have some Natural colour Nylon, but still working the kinks out there

I also have some TPA, a rubbery plastic which has been interesting, works like a high density rubber :) ( black)

happy to share the STL's when done and Tony, you've been such a help, you can have a set for free :) ( just pay for postage please :) )

Thank you. I am happy to pay postage. I just wish you were closer so I could bring over some liquid refreshments to share with you.
Will the material accept paint? Any issue with spray can paint?

most PLA and ABS takes paint easy but not sure on the other types. I have seen some World Of Warcraft figures painted with Humbrol model paints and they looked very good.I have painted a couple items with black spray can paint with good results.

Mmmm very interesting. I have read the preceding exchanges and am reminded of a cartoon of a man talking to a dog. While the dog was listening intently all he could make out was blahblahblahblahblahblahblahblahsit. Are you talking about making the plastic inserts for the striker fittings or are you selling some from a parts car or are you doing both? The question arises then of whether the original (worn) ones will outlast the printed alternatives. I do know that back door ones are best because they are less worn but...........Arhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
I'm just re-reading the 4 part trilogy of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and feel that I have somehow been taken up into a passing space ship and travelled either back in time, forward in time or perhaps remained stationary while time has swirled about me.
So............please tell me what I need and what is a fair price and I will take your advice and I will with great appreciation send you the $.
Don't forget to add postage.
p.s. I think that I am still on that planet which you ape-like people call Earth.
