I have the same hula girl. My girl gets down without your fancy 3d part.

I think a killer idea for a 3d printed part would be a custom soap/hand sanitizer dispenser for the spice rack - over the sink. However there are two different spice racks.

How about the front sliding door latch cover on a Westy, like Winston's, for instance, cracked on the top part. Is there a replacement available, or could we print one? Ecce:

I finally took a good picture of it with this thread in mind. I finally took apart Winston's sliding door hatch cover to be certain whether he needed that printed bumper or not. New style sliding latch cover! Old style latch. No bumper needed. Winston was assembled late in 1984.

Shocked

Best!

I would love a cell phone holder that fits in the ashtray, so that I can use it for music/gps while driving and it doesn’t slide all over the place. Maybe even somehow wire a USB port in it to plug and tuck a charging cable.

I went with this for $10…seems to be OK. It puts the phone close to you so you can toggle your GoPro on and off or whatever it is you need to be doing. The ashtray is a long reach for me…

I have a magnet thing for my commuter car that attached to a vent blade, but seems like a 3-d printed thing that can fit in the ash tray would be perfect.

That plastic curtain rail cover for the rear window on the passenger side (early Westy).

I'm interested. Order for the safety catch cover and two pop-top bumpers pending from unibagel and Uniwerkes.

Best!
