Find somebody with a 3d printer? Maybe find somebody to help you with a design for Thingiverse and then have somebody make it for you?


There will probably be some finishing work to make it look nice and you'll want to use ABS or nylon instead of PLA (with gets all melty when it gets hot).

I used some generic panel clips to hold them together. Info here: https://www.rx8club.com/series-ii-in...-seats-220100/

Ok, I didn't realize you meant they were completely missing. I think I actually have a spare rear right insert, still new in packaging. I bought it, then realized they were all broke and decided to find a way to fix them instead of buying all new ones. If it is one of the ones you need let me know I can give you a good price on it.
