    Hi, Ive been trying to hunt down a specific bit of kit for the outside of my car for a good year now, and for how often I see them I absolutely cannot find them. Im probably using the wrong terms, but some people have a bezel that goes around the nose holes of their grill? I described it with a video you can find here: 2021 03 08 22 45 06 - YouTube

    Seriously, Ive been looking for AGES, and I dont want to go through 3d scanning my car just to 3d print some small accessories for the grill. I would rather buy them.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Those are called GPOs. They are pretty rare these days. I dont off hand know of anyone that makes them anymore.

    You wouldn't have to 3d scan your whole car, just pull the grille and surrounding parts off and scan.

    I suppose I have to replace my bumper skin anyways, I didnt think of taking it off. Ill just scan the new one.

    If I started printing GPO's would people be interested in buying them? I could sell them for pennies.

    Those are the GPO grilles. They were a limited run and there were only a handful of batches made...some better quality than others. I was lucky enough to get one of the original runs from a group buy on the old clubgp. Last I saw them they were being sold on the old wbodystore site which is no-longer
