    Looking for the corner pieces for my brothers Cordoba, they all just turned to dust pretty much i guess from the sun. Anyone have any for sale or know where he can get some? Thanks in advance.

    Is it VFN.com? Its them 3 initials. They do (did) the fiberglass J body replacements. They do a lot of fiberglass body parts for drag strip bodies. They're the only place I know of. They'll need a little massaging and imagination. Theyre much better than nothing, but not oem.

    Three D printers , from what I have seen, make things out of flimsy plastic. Why do you think they would work?

    Speaking to my son, who knows about 3D printing, two questions have come up. first , he would need the actual part to scan. I don't want to remove mine, to experiment with. Second, he asks what temperatures, does a car get "baked", when being painted?

    Its not very high. 140-150F. A dark car in the southwest sun gets that hot I believe. Powder coat bakes around 400F.

    yellowdart with 3D printers you can make a part as thick and solid as you want. Because its tiny dots, thick and solid is very time consuming. Print a heavy pair to use as mold forms.

    The corners, I am told, could be printed out of ABS, Nylon, or poly carbonate, but at a cost of about $2000. each.
