I was able to test the second protype tonight and the fit was great, so I will now start shopping for options to produce them for others as the printing cost me $200 each. I was shocked when he told me that, but wanted to get this thing going ASAP. I already have a quote from one place that I will call tomorrow and sort out the details, but if I understand it right then that option will be $110 a cap. That option would need to have 10 people at a time to do orders and I'm sure different options will require different numbers needed to do a complete order. So, for that reason if you are interested in getting a set PM me and I can work on getting a count to know what options are viable. Details. I made the sides thicker .100 when the factory are .070". The top is .125". The cap is .750" deeper than stock, so more than enough room to clear fxr projectors and maybe something else crazy someone might try. The width of the tower was widened .125" in the middle and .250" on the ends. This was limited by the core support of the truck, so I pushed as far as I thought could be done and work with variables between trucks. On the first one I noticed the little flares could clear all the way out, but I didn't want to do it at first because I thought it would make it so we had to remove the headlight to get the cap off. So, I tested removing the stock cap on the truck with the HID light power corded connected and you can't get it off anyways. I don't know, but maybe this will help some people doing LED bulbs with the large cooling fins on the back. Pictures at the bottom. Buying options so far, I will post others as I lock down the details for them. 1.) If for some reason someone can't wait or just doesn't care to wait and is okay with the printing price, I can get those done quick and I'll add $10 to each one to cover gas plus time. The guy is a good ways from me, so it will just have to be $420 a set, plus shipping. 2.) First quote was confusing and I did read it wrong, but it's still a good bit cheaper. This is a short run injection molding place and they would work out to be $130 a cap, so $260 a set plus shipping. This one would need 10 buyers at a time. 3.) Got another quote back and I see no way it can happen since the initial molding is $15,000 and then each cap is $10 after that, so about 95 sets to get $200 and 250 sets to get $100 a set. This also doesn't include any shipping and I know don't know what a huge order like that would cost to ship. 4.) I have another quote into another place suggested by a friend, but it's printing and the prototypes were way to expensive. I'll update with other options as I get them. Here are a few pictures of the first prototype: Here are some pictures of the first and second together: More details of the final design: Testing the fit: The install of it on my driver side headlight, so I have one finally sealed up: Reserved
