Interest in Part to Repair Rear Window Regulators?

Checking to see if there is any interest in getting the part necessary to repair many failed sedan/wagon rear window regulators. In my experience, the primary failure is the plastic cable guide at the top of the regulator assembly; it may still function, but the window won't close all the way at the top. I myself have at least 3 regulators on which this part is broken - I just put the two good LR ones I had in cars in the last week.

I've contacted a few reverse engineering firms locally about getting this piece remade.

How many others need this?

Not that I'm currently driving a sedan or wagon. I have replaced this part due to the same failure about 4 times on other CB7's I've owned. It's also currently broken on my sedan that a buddy is borrowing. It would be great to fix this without having to replace the entire regulator.

Can it be 3D-printed? Of course it would have to be made into a digital file first, but given the economy scale of something like this, maybe that's a more feasible option.

I have a coupe, so this particular project isn't applicable to me.

All the places I took it to would end up using a cat scan to ultimately create a file for 3D printing. Two of them would just do the scanning, the third would also be able to print it. Got one "discounted" quote for $850 just for the scan; a second quote for $480 plus $90/hour for any adjustment of the file to make the part more robust. Waiting for third.

Anyone got a clue what the material is (specific plastic)?

Aug. 9: Third potential source backed off. Alternate - there are all sorts of new regulators on ebay with that end piece that looks just like the Honda part, so someone must already (still?) be making them.

DOH! https://www.ebay.com/itm/POWER-WINDO...itleDesc=0%7C0

Looks like they only have them for the right side.
