A bit off-topic here I know, but provided "the price is right" I wouldn't worry at all about the surface finish of the 3D-printed foglight grilles.

After all, they are hardly visible being very low down, black, often dirty, and I'm sure most buyers would be happy to give the visible surface a rub down to remove obvious imperfections.

Back on the Brake Master Cylinder Block/Support, what sort of price are we looking at? Both my S8s suffered from what I felt were softish pedals when braking hard so I'm definitely interested.

I do plan to print foglight grilles at some point yes. That's quite a big project though. We need to scan them in first, and I haven't made a scanner yet, then figure out what to print them from. The biggest challenge is how to get an acceptable surface finish on them. Straight off the printer is fine for stuff like this master cylinder brace, but not for cosmetic items. If we have to spend hours hand-finishing them then its cheaper to have them moulded, or just buy new ones.
re fog light grills ; I have the 2 piece type [ early FL ? ] with both actual grill pieces missing
can these be replaced by single piece type ; or are the grill pieces obtainable somewhere somewhere?

Given the choice between a ruddy great hole (and ruinously high cost of replacement) or a 3D-printed grille with a rough ‘n’ ready finish, I’ll take the printed grille every time! Besides, to cut labour costs, I’m sure most owners on here that ordered one would be more than willing to do their own cosmetic/polishing work themselves, to save money.

May even be worth doing some kind of swap scheme so that people would at least have matching grilles (either both printed or both genuine) if you get my meaning. Or the punter sends you their single remaining genuine grille and you supply 2 printed grilles at a reduced rate. Of course if someone orders a certain side grille and you happen to have genuine, then could offer to sell that one to them. Something along those lines..
