    Window scraper - Remanufacture

    Hi All,

    I've started making enquiries about getting a production run of window scrapers done, in particular the left side as it is NLA.

    Does anyone have a new one (or very good one) tucked away they are will to lend me to have the tooling produced? - or just sell to me.

    Would there be much interest in this?

    Until they have seen the part, they cannot be sure it is possible (without a prohibitive cost) or indeed give me a price.

    I'd have to stump up the costs for tooling and order enough units to make their minimums. I've no interest in profiting from this, but I also don't want to be stuck with a load of them!

    Cheers

    Did you check with Heritage and VW Classic Parts first? They recently remade the roof gutter trims and this was happening while someone else had made some reproductions, with both being ready about the same time. It's just worth checking to save on expenses and duplicate effort.

    I can imagine there being massive interest tbh! I for one would definitely want one.

    I have a good ish 2nd hand one, only problem is I intend to use it as the car is due for paint within 3 weeks.

    Just for the benefit of myself and perhaps others.. are you referring to the left hand side as if your standing in front of the engine bay ? in which case the drivers side UK spec is "off side", Or are you sitting in the drivers seat ? then we are talking of the passenger side "near side" on a UK spec car.
    If its the drivers "off side" UK spec window scraper then I would be up for one.

    The right one or the correct one???

    I would certainly be interested in a new one, made do with one from a door I bought on eBay when I couldn’t get one to finish the car after paint. I do however struggle to see why the RHS has been available for so long but not the LHS, as mentioned above, you’ll likely go through a world of pain getting a good replica just for Classic Parts to wade in with genuine ones!

    Surely it can't be that difficult to make a 3D scan of a RHS one, and then just flip it?
