So probably best if I email the cad files to whoever wants them then you can get a quote in aluminium or stainless.
Would people want the 'wings' omitting for the Fox remote reservoirs?
Also the engine skid plate on mine is drawn to suit and extended engine bar because of the Subaru engine conversion.
Also are diesel and petrol engine bars different ?

You wont find anyone who will laser cut alloy plates because it re-fuses.
Get it water jet cut £££ or good old fashioned guillotine cut & punch press

I've had some pretty decent laser cutting of aluminium up to 5mm as long as there is not much detail involved.
But yes water jetting best.

Also I have CAD files for front disc dust shields for 300mm discs on a Syncro, rear brake disc dust shields to suit Epeytec adaptors, cv joint spacers, top wishbone eccentric washers, wheel spacers and spacers to space out the brake discs on a Syncro. And also my front receiver hitch shown on an alternative thread.
Best six months at Keighley Tec I spent doing that Autocad course.

Sounds like a very useful collection files you have built.
Not a great fan of stainless this and stainless that but a very good price comparable to what I've sold am original late VW set for.
