    We talked to a guy at Carlisle who said he talked to the person who's supposed to be making them. Word is that he has everything ready to go, but just hasn't got around to it yet.

    I need to figure out how to make my own plastic parts, for reproducing these:

    maybe if I can figure it out I'll try my hand at a washer bottle too...if the repops don't make it to market...

    They look like rocker panel trim clips.

    I posted an update last week on the progress of the fuselage battery cables and embedded in that response in another thread was this comment on progress of the washer bottles as well:

    "I discussed with Dave at Quirey Quality Design today the progress of the 71 battery cable project. It appears they can make the cables correctly with the connectors for the fusible links being a sticking point up until now. They have been searching high and low for those connectors and have come up with none that match. So Dave ended up buying a new 3D Printer that will make them for this project so that they will match up to the originals as we requested. Also, he said he would also strive to include the correct part number on the cable harness just like the factory did using a glued on green plastic/paper tab. So it is encouraging that they are indeed striving to make them identical in all the details to the originals.

    Also, an update on the washer bottles. He said he has been having a bear of a time finding a way to make the mold for the washer bottle that would be affordable. Just recently though, he has found a machinist that said he can certainly make that mold, so that those should be broken loose from the logjam hopefully soon now. Dave also said those washer bottles will have all the correct wording on the plastic bottle and will be a licensed authentic Chrysler reproduction.

    So I am pleased to hear of the progress and the firm goals in place to achieve the results we have been seeking."

    Those are the body side molding clips. Not sure what years they apply to, but for the New Yorker Brougham with the wide stainless trim these are it. They are not well made - the thin plastic tails on the bottom are supposed to keep the molding tight to the top side of the clip with constant pressure. After a few decades, these become brittle and snap. I was previously thinking of making new ones, but the designed is flawed, so now thinking of a way to modify these with a spring steel wire insert that would replace the tails.

    Interesting idea. I love (or sometimes hate!) "making parts" like you mentioned.

    Steve I called and talked to Dave today he said that he has found a guy that can make the tanks for a reasonable price. But the tank he's using for measurements is warped badly and that's what's taking so long. So he remembered meeting me at Indy swap and I mentioned that I have a NOS 90s repop tank. And asked if I could mail it to him for measurements and would greatly step up the process for the mold. So I'm mailing my tank to him tomorrow and I get my tank back and the 1st tank they make. If everything goes as planned he said Carlisle they'll be available let's see what happens.

    '71 New Yorker has the same style, and I am eventually going to need to figure out what to do too. I think the original style is a flimsy design to attach such a large peice of trim with. I was thinking high quality double sided tape with metal clips on the ends that bolt on from the inside. I like your wire tail idea, there are alot to make though! Let me know what you come up with.

    I’m hoping to finish up quite quickly once I receive this bottle. 90% of design is complete just need to confirm some radius and measurements. Parts will be blow molded like original and made in USA. Will be able to offer bottle at a cost in line with our other bottles with my new machinist that I found. Thx for being patient. This has not been an easy project. Dave - Quirey

    That will be GREAT!

    In related matters, AFAICT no one offers a positive battery cable for fuselage C-bodies. Do you have any plans to offer such a product? I would be very interested in buying at least one right away, and possibly more in the future for other cars.

    I sent Dave at QQE a completely original positive battery cable from one of my 1971 Chrysler 300s (it even still has the part number label on it) late last year and he indicated he has in place all that is needed to make them but is lacking the fuseable link connector specific to the 1971-3 models. He said he searched high and low and can't find one even similar. As a result he decided to buy a 3D printing machine to make that connector but I haven't heard from him lately on the progress of that effort. Maybe he can shed some current light on it. A number of us at the time said we would order multiples of that cable for our cars if they could be produced to match the production ones in their original detail.

    Here is the link to the original thread:

    Reproduction C Body Battery Cables?

    Thank you!!!

    Personally I would be interested in a 1970 cable, as well as 1971-1973.
