Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    For future batches you might want to consider not making these out of PLA. PLA is hygroscopic and becomes brittle over time, its particularly susceptible to breaking when under load for an extended period of time.

    You'll notice if you load a PLA spool and leave it for a year or so, it just starts breaking apart between the spool roll and the extruder.

    Use PETG instead, it'll print as easily as PLA (slightly hotter extruder and heated bed if available), but the end result will be be a part that should last a very very long time.

    Consider PLA is used for biodegradable cups (bad relationship with moisture), and PETG is used for bottling for softdrinks (good relationship with moisture).
    Thanks for the insight!

    I ordered a roll of PETG, hopefully I can get it to print well.

    Circumstantially, I've had pla parts on the exterior of my car, out in the elements, that have been fine for over a year. I'm always up for trying something that will result in better quality though!

      Great attitude!

      You shouldn't have a problem with PETG, it prints as easily as PLA. Most brands (esun, overtrue, hatchbox) all generally print well at 230c with a 80c bed, open air, with no cooling fan, all other settings you can generally leave the same as PLA. Use a bit of extra strong hair spray to keep the first layer from curling up and you should get phenomenal quality prints.

        I've decided I want to give these a try, the metal is good but I would prefer a more factory looking bracket. Should I just PayPal you?

                        Got your payment and I'm ready to pack them up!
                        White or black brackets?

                        I will be out of town for the next 12 days and I will ship out future orders when I return.

                                These are still available? I just bought an IS cowcatcher valance and it came with nothing. Is this what I neeed?

                              Mastrcruse, yes these are still available.
                              Congrats on the new valence, in addition to these brackets there is a thin metal band that attaches to the valence which you will need to track down:
