I don't think I ever found them, but I believe there were some cad files for the little fittings used inside the mirror housings to hold the mirror glass backing. I know the parts were at one point available via ShapeWays or somewhere similar, but I don't think I ever found them.

I'm sure somebody has the STL files somewhere. While my CAD isn't up to the quality of the original parts, I could probably draw the bits I need to an acceptable standard. They would be missing some of the details but are hidden from view anyway.

What sorts of machines do you have access to? Any additive manufacture in stainless steel?

I hope that one day I get to meet you John - thanks for these, I will show them to a contact and see if he can do anything with them. :-)

Cheers!
