Hi viz mast cap - £1.25 Boot lock Mod. - £2 Toolkit Cap - £2 Rear Wheel Brake Mod Bearing Bracket - £5 Cooling fan connector 120mm - £8 Cooling fan connector 90mm (Extra Long) - £8 Front Wheel Brake Mod - £7 Wing Mirror Brackets (Left & Right) - £10 1/10 Model C5 - £40 Battery Adapter (Plastic Only) - £4 Rear wheel centre caps (1 pair) - £8 If you would like any of the above then please send me a PM, saying what you want and I will send you a PayPal invoice. For smaller items the postage will be £1.25, larger items will be £4.50 (Royal Mail signed for), if its going to be more I will let you know how much. I've tried to keep the prices as low as possible and they reflect the amount of plastic needed to make each part and also the time needed/wear and tear on the printer. I will at some point make a proper Shop page on the website but for now I will leave it here in the forum

Hi Dan as you will see by the item I have sent to you to try and copy is made of rubber and the 3 plastic samples you have sent to me the best one I think would do is the middle one for the bottom and maybe the thicker one for the top ..But as you know best it's all trial and error ...If you do manage it I would like at least say 10 ... Regarding the prices and quality I think they are very good thanks Bye Chas

Is it the rubber things that sit between the chassis and white shell?  I'll have a go... man it would be bad for my back if riding on a C5 with hard plastic versions of these

Hi there Dan it's the large rubber gromit that goes on the body where the steering post and the cables go through it's round and about 60mm dia with 3 holes for the brake cables and the power wires ..not sure if it could be made in plastic as it needs to bend to put it in place .But once fitted it should be ok . you have not failed us yet ..

Hi Dave,

Sure, like this you mean:



But with the colours being Yellow cap + Black C5 letters? If so I'll get them printed out for you.  They'll be the same price as the normal caps £3.50 + £2 P&P, let me know if that's okay?

Hello all, I like to run my C5 on 24 volts and I think the first step is to improve the motor cooling with a 12 fan. So is it possible to have 120 mm fan holder shipped to the Holland. Black color is OK. Greets Jan Hein

SINCLAIR C5 CHAS posted:

Hi there regarding the cooling of the motor make sure you get a powerful fan as most fans are not good enough Bye Chas If you are looking for one I could look on eBay for. You bye

The adapter Arrived yesterday, and i can only say i looks perfect . Other good news is that the boss agreed with storing my C5 in our garden housen so i work on in during the winter. I will try to keep you all posted with some updates now and them. First I need to hunt for a proper fan and some bolds to mount it all.

Hi All,

Just to let you know we'll be taking a pause on the 3D printing front for now and will resume in the new year.  The main reason is its quite a time consuming task and have other things I need to get done by the end of December

It'll resume in January, feel free to keep emailing your requests and I'll deal with them in order in Jan.

Thanks!

Dan

Just to advise that I have increased the cost of the postage for larger items to £4.50 as I will send them Royal Mail signed for.  I've had to do this as some items have gone missing recently in the post I will of course combine postage on multiple items

I think it has genuinely gone missing Dave, but still I want to make sure with future stuff that it gets there

Just a quick one to let you know that all 3D printing has stopped for now.  I've got some spare items already made, but after they are gone I don't know if/when I'll make more items.

Thanks!

Just like to say on behalf of myself and I'm sure many others a huge thanks to you Dan, for all the great 3D printed stuff you've done, everything I have ordered has been of the best quality, and turned up really quick and well packed - I can only imagine how much time you have spent on the design and printing of these various parts, and just want to express my thanks whether or not you do anymore in the future or not. Take care and have a well earned rest!! kamztrad

Your best bet is to ask Chas. His mudflaps are virtually identical to the originals.  The mudflaps I've done are a different material altogether and are not as flexible.

Hi, Sorry yep when I've made some more of the boot locks I'll update this thread. As for the files, I've had a number of requests for these and at this moment in time, the files are not for general public distribution.
