plastic clips/connectors for speedo cable

Unread postby wasbrian » Mon May 19, 2014 3:03 pm

Hi Scott and other interested parties,
I have been investigating replacement clips for the speedo and gearbox end of speedo cables on the assumption that it should be easy to 3D scan and print from an original part.Unfortunately that has not been the case,most scanners are only able to produce a "solid" object for example a bolt but a nut for that bolt is another story (the inside of the object).
Almost all replies I have received are negative and or expensive,two are positive.
I asked if a 3D copy could be made of and a 3D print of the clip based on photos I sent with my mails to variuos firms.
A specialist firm here in holland is able to manufacture the speedo cable and even a new impulse generator for your cruise control but cannot give me an accurate price until I can give them an original.
Another firm can produce the clips under certain provisos
Here a copy of their mail to me:-


Hello Brian,

Looking at the photos, I imagine them to cost approx

Brian,

Well done finding these guys, they are just up the road from me and I have a spare speedo cable.

I can give them a call tomorrow.

James

Interesting find, and very creative!

That would be a good part to put on the net as well, as I'm sure there are regular Trafic owners that would like something like this as well as us LeSharo people.

Cheers, Scott
