Restomod Day 3 - Building


The print that I did today focused on getting the sizing right for the opening that the part needed to fit. I had measured with calipers ahead of time, but I wanted to be sure that the part would fit as printed.

Checking for size

Also, for a little bit of an Easter egg, I've been experimenting with how to indicate the date and track versions of each printed part. In this version, I printed the date and the revision number. I also added dots indicating the month and day of the month, although they don't stand out in this picture.

Checking for size with bumper and caliper for scale

At this point, I feel pretty confident that I got the fit right for the mounting points, so I'm going to move onto getting the styling and the fit with the rest of the body dialed in.
