Stil not had chance to print a lid yet but I'll keep the project updated when I get around to it.

 

On another note the small batch of test springs arrived and they fit perfectly.

So If anyone is wanting one let me know. Forum members the price is £30 Delivered (Uk Postage).

First test print of the lid in PLA.

Looks good but still needs a little work. 

Fitment is very tight as the PLA doesn't flex that much but I'm hoping PETG will be better.

The complete tray isn't quite ready yet.  (Give me a few days).  But as the lid takes almost as long as the base to print (10 hours) it's a two day job per complete tray, so it will be a little bit dearer than the base alone.

With the hottest day we had for some time I thought I'd do some product testing to see if PLA prints would survive in the car on hot days. I placed the PLA printed lid in the missus car in the sun on the dash for 2 hours, see photo.....

So It's a No then lol.

 

A new roll of PETG arrived this morning (what I printed the bases out of). From what I've read online it should withstand hot days in the car.

Down side is the finish isn't quite as good as PLA also takes much longer to print.

I'll post up the results soon.

So While waiting for the roll of black PETG to arrive I printed a grey PETG one. I had no idea what shade of grey I would get but it is a bit lighter than the pase 1.5 grey shown in the photos.

I did the inside anthracite flock and Ill try it in my phase 1.5 grey dash tomorrow and post up a pic installed.

Still no complete black cointrays yet, but wont be long now.

For anyone wanting one, complete trays (base & lid assembled, flocked with new clicker and spring) will be £45 posted for forum members.

Or if you want a matching little triangle that sits above the cointray aswel it will be £50 posted.

Please send me a PM if your interested.

So the Grey is too light to match the phase 1.5 grey..  obviously.  But what are your thoughts?20200809_122417.thumb.jpg.a7c1d1bf70d1c14ef2d91864c99ce11a.jpg

Noticed a few problems with the complete tray assembly so still a little way to go.

Got the small triangle printed in good quality PETG tho. Looks good and fits perfectly.
