In regards to the trim clip drawings in the library, shapeways.com is a custom 3D print to order house if anyone's interested in creating some.

--Paul, this looks like a good tip, but could you please clarify for me. When you say "trim clip drawings" in the library, what exactly are you referring to? A particular page or drawing would be helpful. Is that "trim clip" as in clips used to attach trim pieces? Sorry, but you lost me.

A fine gentleman who is redoing a AC Sport Coupe took an existing clip from his car, drew it up in CAD, exported a STL file to send to a printer and then had the part printed using a deposition printer.

He showed people and after being asked, he kindly offered his files to everyone for free. His name is Martin Hoegg and he posts over on the Facebook group Everything Fiat 124, his Coupe is going to be like new when he is done. You can thank him for offering the model for free, he provided images, a STP CAD file and the STL file to take directly to a printing service or print on your own machine.

The original parts are generally NLA and are old and brittle. It is a simple part that could be tooled fairly easily but has not been so someone taking a good existing part, replicating it and making it available to the community gratis is a wonderful thing

I have made similar parts files available on XWeb for insulation patterns and other parts in the past.

I sent the files to Brad yesterday evening and he is kindly hosting them for whoever needs them.

And a few appliances for day to day
