Vanagon – quick fix, arm rest bolt caps

Originals were a bit ratty, and a couple wouldn’t stay put. Made a set from black Delrin. You 3D printing folk have an advantage over us subtractive makers 🙂

Ok, bear with me, trying a link to the fusion 360 file, might take a few tries. Grrr, trying to insert model into a frame here, dint have the skill. This link though will take you to model and I think you can download.

Hold on, managed to have a zipped file of the fusion model, to download without going thru fusion’s meat grinder.

what a lot of palaver for such a inconsequential thing.

    Hi Sir,
    I need some of these finish end caps to fit up on my ’85 Vanagon.
    3X or 4X black ones would service my need nicely.

    What would they cost, please?

    Thank you.

      Hi Robert,

      I don’t know. I made them on the lathe , spur of the moment. What I will do is draw them up in fusion 360 and make the model available. Then you could use the model to have a 3D printing service make some. And I suppose I could look into how much I would charge to cnc mill some from Delrin. Gimme a few days ok?

    Does anyone know where I can fine Radiator Mounts for my 84 Vanagon? We dropped the radiator and fan/shroud. I can find a new radiator and shroud, fan is fine. But would love to replace the mounts. They are so corroded! I have searched on line to no avail. Maybe I am not calling them the right name… thanks.
