Re: Wagon Guys: Under lid insulation, what was OG?

It has been a long time coming but I got a 3D printer and tried my hand at making the buttons that hold up the insulation.

I have a set on my wagon that are made of PLA plastic. I do not think they are going to hold up to the heat in the engine bay so I have ordered some white ABS to try next. If that does not work I will send the design out to have them made of another material?? I feel like I am going to need to wait for the full heat of summer here in NC to know for sure that they are not going to turn back into goo.

I would love to be able to share the design or sell them if the wagon owners were interested, let me know.

I want to share what I did with this wagon! I first put spray foam in the grooves then used a hot knife to level the 'playing field'. I then cut stainless strips to make a frame which will hold down the Restomod membrane. I had the stainless polished and ceramic coated clear. Then laid membrane and riveted the frame on.

Lost some build pics to show but here it is nearly finished. I also put gas shocks and a latch in.
