    Sounds great - I've got an unbuilt Sienna Kit that I intend to do as an original LP400 - currently collecting parts, so put me down for four!

    No, my vents came from Italy.

    I will happily, but I won't take any orders until I know we have a viable product. Just going through the design with my CAD expert guy (I know my limitations) and I'm trying to find the best way to make them. Couldn't have done this without help from the forum members....

    May be knocking on Pedro's door soon!

    Maybe, but not sure. I've submitted a file to www.emachineshop.com for quotes. The originals are black plastic lower half and 'vane' and chromed plastic upper half with the 'grip ring' We thought about milling the upper from aloooominum but I'm guided by my CAD guy, who is EPIC by the way....

    We're not necessarily looking to be able to mix and match parts, as they seem to vary anyways, but try and produce a viable alternative for people who want them.

    What do you think Pedro? 3D print or have one cut and mold from it? This is your field of expertise. I'm concerned about the finish of the 3D printed items...

    The molding process picks up every last detail on the parts, so essentially the better the finish on the original part the nicer the cast part comes out.
