    Wiper tray

    These seem to break/crack all the time.
    Going to try and tool off of this and make a few carbon looking pieces.

    Could you make a cutout/opening for refilling the A/C? (On Rossion) you have remove or bend the side of the tray to gain the access the valve. Thanks

    And/or a simple fiberglass one?

    For this non-sexy piece, carbonfiber looks cool and is a nice option, but I would rather spend the extra $$$ on go fast/stop better stuff.

    Filip,

    the rossion is different than the Noble. I might have a Q1 tray that we can use as a donor. I know that there was one revision for the Q1 as the windshield wiper swing arm hit the underside of the tray. I'll look into it.

    We don't handle this part of the car very often. But the factory piece is super duper flimsy.

    I wish the market was large enough to support parts such as these, I'll probably make 5 pieces and call it a day. Most people will only replace this part as a unique aesthetic to highlight the front-end when the clam is open. Others will be for replacement, but I don't see a big market since I've never had an order for one.

    The early Rossions do have an issue. I've seen the underarm crack the tray and there was a revision.

    Is the part needed? Or is it, even in flimsy plastic, just to clean up the looks?

    it covers up all the mechanics of the windshield wiper and keeps water from pouring in.

    I think I'm going to pick a few parts and tool them:

    spliiter, factory diffuser, door handles and some interior pieces.
    this is all bling bling, but there's a small market for these items....

    Plan on another revision Hoover. The new cars being built are single wiper. If they ever actually build any.

    Is there anyone left at Rossion? I emailed with a simple parts request last week - no answer.

    If the price is reasonable, count me in for one for an M12.
