A-Frame close outs

Anyone have a good pair of these? I guess they are NLA. They look like a good candidate for 3D printing.

The airstream place in Salt Lake City sells them. Wait never mind, just looked, NLA. I bought 2 from them, they were trimmed wrong so didn't fit well. Made replacements out of sheet metal. The ones I made don't project forward but made a nice seal anyway. I used the old ones and cardboard to make a template of the section that hous back against the skin and sealed the edges with caulk.

3D printing would be awesome. The back part that goes against the skin needs to be wider. My originals were much wider than the replacements I got. Either of you capable of doing that 3D stuff?
I can probably dig up the ones I didn't use but it'll be a couple weeks before I have a chance to look.

If you don't have your own 3D printer go to your local High School Career Tech. That is what I did to get some latches printed for a Caravel.
They did a great job and the class wanted to be paid in donuts. A sweet deal all the way around.

I don't think finding a place to do the 3D printing will be tough. The hardest part is finding a set of good originals.

I bought a set on eBay. When they arrive I'll get a price to have them 3D printed and post back here or direct message anyone who is interested in a set.

Anyone know what years they fit?
