Cross post from my blog The Porsche 911 Sportomatic Brake Pad (Part#: 905-423-511-00) is a NLA item. Not even Pelican Parts can help me, and on forums second hand ones are selling for anywhere from US$90-175. That’s a lot of money for what should be a <$20 piece of rubber. So I had a try at 3D printing one myself in Form2 flexible resin: Side by side comparison of old, heavily worn pad and new printed pad. Note that this was my first go at the model and so I didn't bother rounding corners or printing at high resolution: Then finally the fitted product! Only needed minor trimming with a stanley knife: In total I calculate it cost around $12 of resin (~50mL). Not a bad alternative! Now I just need to see how it wears over time. Keen to try printing other NLA Porsche parts in the future. There are some on Thingiverse, but not as many as I would have expected. Keen to hear any feedback or thoughts!
