Summary

This is based on the work of chuck : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11954
I remove some useless material to make is lighter, and mirrored it to have the driver's side. I made two versions, see below why.
Perfectly fits my Volkswagen POLO 6N1 1996
The freecad files are included, so feel free to improve it !

Please print it with the highest filling setting if possible (use files named XXX_Improved.stl or freecad project improved_model2).
If you cannot (or do not want to) print the part full you may prefer the reinforced parts with name ending with "holes". When printing in "medium" filling setting, this will create reinforcement points where the part needs it (else, it will break ...).

Instructions

The original stl from chuck was imported in FreeCad (Linux), and reworked. Then I printed it using PLA on my M3D printer (it tooks 4 hours).

Mine lasted 2 weeks before I replaced them with chinese copies (that took two weeks to come to france ...).
When I remove them, they were a little bit damaged / bent, so I don't think they would have last more time.
I printed them using PLA but I would have better use ABS to print them, because here (in south of France), PLA pieces can bent due to the summer heat (can be 40°C).

Does it hold up to daily usage?
