Jim, if you are reading this....I may be looking to do an internship at Bostig and have you Guys help me with the CAD, after hours of course Wink


I do CAD design for a living.
3D modeling all day long, including lots of surfacing of ergonomic shapes and the occasional mechanical prismatic shapes.
We also do tons of 3D printing/prototyping. We even make tools for molding and holding fixtures with 3D printing.
3 printers in house
I wish I could help you guys out, but management would probably not like it.
If I could afford the software, it would be a pleasure to design something that is related to the Vanagon.

Some additional questions. Do you have to remove the skid plate to drain the engine oil? Second, what do you think if I cut a curve out between the two holes in the cradle mount for trans drain access. Do you think that would hurt the integrity of the mount. It looks pretty strong to me.


I cut mine out using a ~2" hole saw -- that thing is BURLY, and i dont think its an issue. I talked to the bostig guys, and they didn't think it'd be a problem.
