I put my 3D printing file for a spark plug wire loom here:

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2755492

You can print your own piece with the .stl file either with your 3D printer or an outside print service.

The design is for 7mm wires and it should be made from a higher temperature printing material than the usual PLA plastic.

This piece was my first print try after designing it, I'm very surprised it came out good the first time!

Happy printing.

Alan

I'm pretty sure anyone selling something like this would need to have a license for the trademark/copyright logo.
My file on Thingiverse is listed as use for non-commercial only. One cannot use it for selling.

Printing one yourself, or using an outside printing service, is the safer way.

Google 3d printing services and you will find various places with price quotes that range from $12 to $25.

For example:
makexyz.com quoted around $12 and Staples quoted around $25. They use different printing methods therefore the price difference.

I've never used an outside service so I can't vouch for the quality or customer service.

Just a thought.. If you wanted to try and sell them and are worried about the copy right, maybe just make them with the octagon empty and the purchaser could find a decal for it. Or horn button or ??

Yes, we are thinking alike. I started researching that method yesterday.
Thanks for suggesting it.
