    This is the upper windshield side of the latch. Got Ron's replacement parts and as soon as I connected them - - bam. Broken pot metal.

    Ricambi had made new replacements but doesn't have any, and it looks like all the parts sites I can find are out of stock.

    Anyone know a good source or a breaker I can contact?

    Thanks!

    Are you talking about this part? The part that is pictured three times in the photo below. If yes, they are the next week link in the latch system. I call them the sliders and I also make them.

    Trust me, once you get the latches sorted, and you learn how to properly latch your roof closed, you will never have a problem again. The roof mechanism is a weak link but the solutions are available.

    I made a bunch of those about ten years ago. I’ll check my stash when I get home and if I don’t have any I’ll make some more. I machined them from high strength aluminum and black anodized them. They were super strong.

    Usually the Eurospares folks put low prices on things they don't have in stock :)

    Albert,
    I am making one for you out of high strength stainless. It won’t break!

    AWESOME Ron thanks so much!

    Confirmed with Eurospares it's only available with the whole latch as well - so this is perfect timing. Maybe one day I can close this top!

    I’m only making one right now. Using a new process and proving put the database. If this works out well, I will send the file out for quotes and make more if the cost is reasonable. This is not a simple part to machine.

    Is this done on a CNC mill ? It would be real fun to do on my manual mill.

    I’m having it printed using a Markforge RP Machine.
    Really cool process.

    That is some technology, i know they were doing it in plastic but i did not realise it had advanced to metals. I take it the stainless is printed in a liquid or paste form, how does it become a hard stainless.

    Yes, it’s amazing what they have been able to do in the RP World.
    Lots of advancements in my life time. I was employed (prior to being laid off) by Bose Corporation for 34 years. I built the
    Machining Group, Model Making Group and finally the Rapid Prototyping Group. RP has been the most fun. Bose was one of the first sites on the east coast to purchase an SLA Machine and they remained on the cutting edge till the day I was cast off.

    I should add that the Markforge process is especially amazing.

    Here is another picture of the part, post sintering. Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I’ll be making more as soon as Albert verifies geometry.
    They will be machined from high strength aluminum and place passivated.
